Johnny was doing what he call’s “doodling around” on his keyboard
in the music room when I heard a “get up and dance” rhythm he was playing. I came in dancing while proclaiming
“This music makes me so happy!” (It was a cold winter’s day and I
was weary of the pandemic). The lyrics came to me in rapid fire like no
other lyrics had came before.
Lyrics by Jacqueline Cates
Hear the beat of drums - join with your spirit
It’s ready to take flight - yes, you can feel it
Move your feet - feel the joy within you
It’s no time to sleep - no time to be blue
Move your hips -to the rhythm of your soul
No need to be shy - let your fears all go
Put your worries aside - move your feet
Move your hips - dance to the beat
Move to the Groove
Dance all by yourself or dance
Move others to dance - break those chains
Taking a chance - is all that remains
Move your feet - move your hips
Move those shoulders - be a lunar eclipse
