Chance to Dance

from by The Mad Maggies



move around the dance floor with someone you love

written in memory of accordionist, Richie Domingue who said "Don't ever pass up a chance to dance."




Come and dance awhile
come swing and sway
with every step we’ll push
the blues so far away
they' ll fall into the sky
clouds will pass them by
and smile

Sing a melody
Sing a sound
with every tune we’ll turn
this crazy world around and ‘round
‘til the sun and moon
get dizzy watching you
and me

And when we are moving
Starlight fills the air
You are the one I love
The one who takes me there
