Slow Dance S L O W D A N C E: *BR* *br* Have you ever watched kids*br* on a merry-go-round*br* Or listened to the rain*br* slapping on the ground?*br**br* Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight*br* Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?*br**br* You better slow down*br* Don’t dance so fast*br* Time is short*br* The music won’t last*br* Do you run through each day on the fly*br* When you ask How are you?*br* do you hear the reply?*br**br* When the day is done,*br* do you lie in your bed*br* With the next hundred chores*br* running through your head?*br**br* You’d better slow down*br* Don’t dance so fast*br* Time is short*br* The music won’t last*br**br* Ever told your child,*br* We’ll do it tomorrow*br* And in your haste, not see his sorrow?*br**br* Ever lost touch,*br* Let a good friendship die*br* ‘Cause you never had time*br* to call and say Hi?*br**br* You’d better slow down*br* Don’t dance so fast*br* Time is short*br* The music won’t last*br**br* When you run so fast to get somewhere*br* You miss half the fun of getting there.*br* When you worry and hurry through your day,*br* It is like an unopened gift…*br* Thrown away..*br**br* Life is not a race.*br* Do take it slower*br* Hear the music*br* Before the song is over.
