We each dance a merry dance
To the music we are given.
How long we dance for, I don’t know.
Sometimes I lead, sometimes follow.
You dance, I dance, we don’t know why.
New moves, new clothes: we try, we try.
Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry.
And then our music stops.
We each danced a merry dance.
Victims of our circumstance.
And then our music stopped.
