You have to learn to dance life’s moves
to do it right and find your groove.
Prepare to dodge, to kick and flow
’cause life will dictate where to go.
You take one step to start your day,
but be prepared for ‘come what may’.
It’s two steps forward, three steps back –
the way of life, just learn the knack.
Not hard to learn, go with the flow,
just learn the steps, it’s back and fro.
Take two steps now, move sure and free,
but be prepared to go back three.
Now sometimes you can beat the score,
’cause life will let you get to four.
But be prepared, it’s very rare
that life will let you stay right there.
Just when you think you’ve learned life’s dance,
the rules will change – a game of chance.
You’ll find the dance moves change again,
you’ll wind up where you were back then.
You think you have knots in that rope,
but they give way, you learn to cope.
Remember when you get off track …
it’s two steps forward, three steps back.
