Ballerina Lyrics

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

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

Once you said his love must wait its turn
You wanted fame instead
I guess that's your concern
We live and learn

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! Whirl ballerina

Once you said his love must wait its turn
You wanted fame instead
I guess that's your concern
We live and learn

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

Thoughts & Meanings

We are all put on this earth for a short period of time and for a special purpose. People will be watching our successes and failures. One should do whatever it is one does to the best of their abilities and not let the affairs of the world distract or keep them from their calling because time passes far too quickly. We must indeed realize there are “trade-offs” to be made in life, but many times the cost of our decisions will only be realized in brief retrospection. In the end, one will please some people and not others. There will be high points and there will be regrets. One will win some and lose some. One can’t have it all. So, give it one’s best shot while one can. Dance Ballerina, Dance.
