Every Woman Wants To Dance


Every woman wants to dance
Every woman wants the chance.


Behind closed doors
All the fiery sexy sways,
Even thru her kitchen days,
She’ll use her pegs as castanets
As soggy towels her hands do wets.
Over fence, neighbours know they have seen,
The local show of the dancing queen,
Radio’s Rolling Stones belt out the action to
‘I can’t get no satisfaction’,
A million hips gyrate on the table tops
As they swing and hug the upturned mops.

Every woman wants to dance
Every woman wants the chance.

In the shops in the office the toes do tap,
As boys outside dance the sidewalk rap,
The female face shows thoughtful glares
‘Where on earth are the Fred Astaire’s? ’
They want to show their legs in the Cha Cha Cha,
Even if they dance on the drinkers bar,
Woman does not need a dancing smaltz
To drag them thru the lovely waltz.
When man comes home to her alone
A surprise he secured by office phone,
Two tickets to the fireman’s ball for her desire,
They will put out her dancing fire,

Every woman wants to dance
Every woman will, given the chance.

    These lines were great;

    When man comes home to her alone
    A surprise he secured by office phone,
    Two tickets to the fireman’s ball for her desire,
    They will put out her dancing fire,

    Oh Ken, you know the secret desire of every woman, I can relate to this!
    Please read my poem For Michelle, a dancer now an amputee who yearns to dance.
    most grateful.
    keep on writing Ken, loving your poetry, Best wishes.

    I remember when they taught dance in school...I contend things are better today when one learns to dance on their own. (Report) Reply
