Let’s Dance

“I’ve been dancing in the rain,” you said.

You didn’t need to tell me,
I’d seen you in the distance
doing your Gene Kelly thing
and more than looking the part.

Perhaps I should tell you to act your age
but I’ve given up on that.
And I won’t tell you to dress your age.
You’ll never dress in old women’s clothes.
And I’m glad about that.
Orange and pink are grand
and Gene Kelly would be lost in an envy
of black and white regrets.

So jump in and I’ll give you a lift
to get you out of the rain.
Or maybe I’ll park up
and join you in a dance
even though it’s raining
and I’m not dressed for it.

Yes, I think I will!
