Tango Jive for jive, salsa with you, And you beckoned me on the dance floor And I followed And the crooner sang soulful songs And I danced Sometimes close sometimes far
And I could see Your mum smiling at us From the sides and clapping She loved her son and I loved you You have been always so special to me My dearest friend who always had a Dimpled guileless laugh.
You, I know would never grow in mind And be a lovely ten-year-old child forever And we both dance fast Matching step by step as the music Reaches a crescendo and Then hug each other tight. You a boy, imprisoned in the body of a man forever. And me a plain nondescript woman with no suitors except you.
