You mustn’t once forget ballerina; a dancer has to dance the part..
Whirl, ballerina, whirl
And ignore that empty seat in the second row..
You can’t afford a backward glance,
A thousand people here have come to see the show
As ’round and ’round you go
Dance, ballerina, dance..
If a ballerina’s feet are not in the right place, at least her heart is..
And when she quits for a broken ankle, my pen will run dry..
So if dancers seems mad to those who never heard music, my words will always remain a mystery to those who forgot how to feel..
Dance ballerina, wear out your pointe shoes.. And I’ll write, till all the ink in the world runs dry..
Dance Ballerina, Dance.
