Auto Tango


If there was only one dance
The chance of a lifetime
No dress rehearsal
Only one show
in the world
of a
stage
Would you jive or tango with
the wittiest monkey
or orang-utan
Dream safari
While waiting
for the
Knight
Hold out for prince Charming, or…
Just dance as long as the
night is young and the
knight is taking
time you may
not have
So…
Bumps and smooth rides, skating on
thin ice. Dance. Trip. Step up!
Ha! Flat on your face
You fell - so what!
Shimmy out  
a new
you
