Dance

Dance

Dance is generally, though not exclusively, performed with the accompaniment of music and may or may not be performed in time to such music.

To that end we have included six pieces here, which we believe can be danced to or equally simply listened to whilst tapping ones foot . Not everyone feels comfortable on the dance floor, but I wouldn’t mind betting that most non dancers are actually dancing in their mind.

Every Time I Try To Fly

(F Johnson/J Johnson)

EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLY
I know just what I’m looking for
Just enough maybe a little more
I know just where I wanna be
On dry land and not all at sea
And I know just who I wanna be
Anyone else but me – Anyone else but me
Anyone else but

CHORUS:-

I KEEP THINKING I WISH I COULD FLY
I KEEP DREAMING I FLOAT THROUGH THE SKY
JUST AS I REACH TO SOME WONDERFUL PLACE
SOMETHING ALWAYS BRINGS ME RIGHT BACK TO BASE
EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLY

I’ve seen truth with my own eyes
I’ve been around I’m streetwise
I’ve heard enough to feel no shock
When other laugh I softly mock
Though It’s not worth much
Still you need the midas touch
Still you need the midas touch
Still you need the midas

CHORUS:-

I KEEP THINKING I WISH I COULD FLY
I KEEP DREAMING I FLOAT THROUGH THE SKY
JUST AS I REACH TO SOME WONDERFUL PLACE
SOMETHING ALWAYS BRINGS ME RIGHT BACK TO BASE
EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLY
EVERY TIME I TRY – EVERY TIME I TRY
EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLY.

Bridge:-
If at first you fail and try to no avail
Don’t just walk away there’ll be another day

BUT YOU ALWAYS BRING ME RIGHT BACK TO BASE
EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLY
EVERY TIME I TRY – EVERY TIME I TRY
EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLY
EVER TIME I TRY – EVERY TIME I TRY
EVERY TIME I TRY TO FLY.

Flavour Of The Month

(Hunt/Johnson)

FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH
It’s that time in my life when I need a wife
Will I fall in love? Will I hold down a job?
Hope I never go through this again
Don’t blame it all on the night
Something wasn’t quite right
You see it’s all down hill after love at first sight

CHORUS:-
WELL WE WERE DOING WELL WHEN IT ALL WENT WRONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH THIS IS OUR SWANSONG
OUR LOVE WAS A FIRE THAT BURNED TOO LONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH WE DIDN’T LAST THAT LONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH THIS IS OUR SWANSONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH WE DIDN’T LAST THAT LONG.

Making love was easy in the evening rain
We had decide one step at a time
No pretending that nothing had changed
We were two hungry hearts
That were fanning a flame
Too complicated was the name of this game.

CHORUS:-
WELL WE WERE DOING WELL WHEN IT ALL WENT WRONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH THIS IS OUR SWANSONG
OUR LOVE WAS A FIRE THAT HAD BURNED TOO LONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH WE DIDN’T LAST THAT LONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH THIS IS OUR SWANSONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH WE DIDN’T LAST THAT LONG.

Bridge:
We both knew we thought the same and understood
That it was time to face the music or at least the truth
Knowing that the moment that you walked out that door
I was a wiser man than I’d ever been before.

CHORUS:-

WELL WE WERE DOING WELL WHEN IT ALL WENT WRONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH THIS IS OUR SWANSONG
OUR LOVE WAS A FIRE THAT HAD BURNED TOO LONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH WE DIDN’T LAST THAT LONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH THIS IS OUR SWANSONG
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH WE DIDN’T LAST THAT LONG
BYE BYE….

I’m only missing you

(F Johnson/J Johnson)

I’M ONLY MISSING YOU
It started out a grey day
Phone rang I heard your voice
Suddenly the sun came out
It was first of May day – Hey – Yay – Yay.

CHORUS:-
OH WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME
WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS CHEER ME
COZ I’M ONLY MISSING YOU
I’M ONLY MISSING YOU
YEAH I’M ONLY MISSING YOU
AND I KNOW THAT YOU HEAR ME.

Feeling like I might cry
I talked with you, you made me smile
Oh I was feeling oh so good
It was 4th of July – My – Oh – My.

CHORUS:-
OH WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME
WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS CHEER ME
COZ I’M ONLY MISSING YOU

AND I KNOW THAT YOU HEAR ME.

Bridge:
Everybody needs someone to tell their troubles to
Seems no matter where I am
I have to talk – I need to talk
I wanna talk – To you.

CHORUS:-
WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME
WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS CHEER ME
WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEED ME… (FADE)

YOU’RE SO YOUNG

CHORUS INTRO:-
YOU’RE SO YOUNG – YOU’RE SO YOUNG

YOU’RE SO YOUNG – YOU’RE SO YOUNG
YOU’RE SO YOUNG – YOU’RE SO YOUNG
