Will you dance the tango with me
And make me forget all life’s woes,
Hold your cheek close to mine, rough to soft
While I clench in my teeth a red rose?
Will you waltz me around until dawn
In a ballroom where only we two belong
Skirting floor edge to edge in grand sweeps
While orchestra plays our love song?
Will you Charleston and laugh as we flap
Giddy moves, all dressed to the nines,
Flirt outrageously, pose to the world
While forgetting all sad other times?
Will you twist me and turn me around,
Shake hips with luscious desire,
Berate the baleful and bored
While hearts are consumed by our fire?
Will you strip the willow with me,
Hear the skirl as I spin in your arms,
Skip up each line, reuniting in time,
While you succumb to all of my charms?
Will you rock and roll if they play,
And twirl me in jauntiest jive,
Laughing loudly at moves that we make
While you reassure me I’m still alive?
Will you boogie to disco, though crass,
Strut your stuff to show your emotion,
Remembering how those years were filled,
While new times inspire true devotion?
Will you pogo and romp if I smile
And suggest that we always must dance,
Partaking of life with its music to rouse
While we serenade this, our last chance?
Will you hold me for slowest of tunes
As the night draws to close and we sway,
Will you promise to be the dance of my life
While the music ebbs, fades away?
