Grandma sits in her rocking chair
reminiscing on olden days
grandpa sits with his pipe alit
remembering his old dance craze.
The days of dance were a time of joy
for the young that was their life
besides working hard 5 days a week
you got ready and took out your wife.
Saturday night at the old dance hall
was a highlight of everyone's week
grabbing your partner dancing the two step
amid the smoke and the reek.
The band were amazing the dancers alive
doing the jive using all of the floor
watching the older ones enjoying the dance
while the kids watched at the hall door.
The end of the night the dance slowed down
guys clutching their girls so tight
everyone enjoyed the dance hall days
and rarely was there a fight.
Getting ready to go home at twelve oclock
getting a supper to end a great night
a kiss on the cheek and then a goodnight
and a hug with all your might.
Content and happy grandpa and his girl
remebered the old dance days
they wouldnt change a thing back then
it was entertainment and not just a phase.
Again going back in time, to the days of your Gran and Grandpa, when they would have enjoyed dancin, can you imagine what it must have been like, you remember when you go clubbing, picture what it must have been like in those days.
Did your mom and dad dance ? or your grandparents? can you remember them dancing?
