They say that dance is good for the body and mind.
And better exercise would be hard to find.
No tasselled boots or cowboy hats.
Take a deep breath and relax.
Soon it is time for the first lesson.
Just basic steps for this session.
The music goes on—try a few steps.
Slide, shuffle and then grapevine to the left.
Blue rose is easy to learn.
But Irish stew has lots to learn.
Come & join us and have some fun.
We welcome and encourage everyone.
The day comes round again for our next line dance meet.
Where the music is so cheery it soon has us tapping our feet.
Each tune is very different from Good-time Girl to an Irish stew.
There’s a pretty Belinda and a Scooby Doo.
Sometimes the steps seems difficult and Hazel has to shout.
But we all get up anyway and help each other out,.
The hour passes quickly and we have all had fun.
Perhaps the only thing missing is a cuppa and a sticky bun.
Time for home so we take our chairs and put them away.
Look forward to next week, same time, same day.
We say our farewells make our way to the door.
Thinking of next week and more fun that’s for sure.
To start the dancing is Hazels battle
To get some hush from noisy cackle
She patiently waits, skills galore
For us dancers to take the floor
When finally we are ready to start
On the goes the dance Achey Breaky Heart
And usually cause a right kerfuffle
We try to do a Sailors Skiffle
WE stand in our orderly lines
Doing rocks, pivots, taps and vines
After several twists to the left
WE have to stop to take a breath
Now it seems we can put the steps together
And at last are dancing better
After practice we know the dance and tune
What good fun we have on Tuesday afternoon
