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!
