I received a
message and a
Dancin' Karen from a dear friend,
Of course, what could I do
But write a poem
When I was
young and in my prime,
I went dancing' all the time.
and roll was really ?cool',
And I loved Elvis (I ain't no fool)
Then Chubby Checker came along
And I danced the
?Twist' to his latest song,
Then the ?Mashed Potato' and the
All that dancing' helped to keep me trim.
After I married I was ?more sedate?,
We went to
dances, but never stayed late.
Slow dancing, the two-step, and
Together we really showed some 'smaltz'.
Dancin' with my husband was something I adored,
When we went dancin'~~~~we were never bored.
dancin' we did was in our own livin' room,
I felt like a bride,
and he was my groom.
So oft' I've told this story of my romance,
how my hubby and I just loved to dance.
A dear friend of mine
named 'Betty Boop'
Made a present for me, and here's the scoop.
She found a dancer, yes-sir-reeeee
And pasted a
head on, and it looks like me!
Thanks Betty for the good 'belly
Does anyone want my 'autograph'?
