Hooray! Hooray! The time has come
To dance, to dance till day is done!

You've learned to dance the proper way.
Now dance! Now dance throughout the day!

The lovers twirl around the floor,
Round and round, then round some more.

With graceful steps they do their duty,
Making life a thing of beauty.

Round and round and round they go
Until at last they start to slow;

Then slowly, slowly round and round
Till one, then both, are in the ground.

The dance is done, the dance is over,
The two have turned to grass and clover.

Dancing did as dancing does.
But what a lovely dance it was!
