Oh life can be a melody of music quite divine

If you just tune up your instrument before you step in line.

If you listen to the rhythm, if you step into the style

Or even stand in silence and just listen for a while.

If you learn to hear the music and flow within the song

You’ll find yourself in harmony and dance the whole day long.
