Song Meaning
Verse 1
Dance, ballerina, dance
And do your pirouette in rhythm with your achin' heart
Dance, ballerina, dance
You mustn't once forget a dancer has to dance the part
Verse 2
Whirl, ballerina, whirl
And just ignore the chair that's empty in the second row
This is your moment, girl
Although he's not out there applauding as you steal the show
Verse 3
Once you said his love must wait its turn
You wanted fame instead
I guess that's your concern
We live and learn
Verse 4
And love is gone, ballerina, gone
So on with your career; you can't afford a backward glance
Dance on and on and on
A thousand people here have come to see the show
As 'round and 'round you go
So, ballerina, dance
Dance, dance!
Verse 5
Whirl ballerina
Verse 6
Once you said his love must wait its turn
You wanted fame instead
I guess that's your concern
We live and learn
Verse 7
And love is gone, ballerina, gone
So on with your career; you can't afford a backward glance
Dance on and on and on
A thousand people here have come to see the show
As 'round and 'round you go
So ballerina, dance
Verse 8
Dance
