Just to be sure you did not miss
Seein’ grand dancin’, just like this…
Jumpin’ here and steppin’ there…
Twirling, tapping everywhere!
In Ireland, we sure love to dance!
We dance and dance at every chance!
Me Mum is one of those who do
The dancin’…in gray skies or blue!
If there’s a dance she doesn’t lose
Her chance…she wears her dancin’ shoes!
It’s all the time and ev’ry day,
‘Cause dancin’ always is her way!
Mum loves especially the jig,
Even though she’s not so big!
‘Tis so grand to see her high step!
And she dances with all her pep,
…known as one of the high kickers,
She’s proud of her grand, green knickers!
And, oh, she really loves to dance
With me, her Finney…every chance!
Me Mum and I have dancin’ fun.
We love to dance ‘fore day is done!
We jump and jig and twirl around…
The air is full of “dancin’ sound!”
Sometimes we dance and jump sooo high,
That me Mum’s grand braids…up they fly!
So when you hear the music play,
In a grand, fun toe-tapping way,
Just step right out on that dance floor
And dance and dance and dance some more!
If someone wants to dance with you,
‘Tis more the fun when there are two!
But truth be told, there is no need,
For only one is fine, indeed!
Just tap and twirl and dance around!
There’s such great joy that can be found!
I’m glad that we could talk today.
God bless you is what I do say! (See Footnote #20)
