Dance On

The bell has rung for time
It’s the end of the line
The party’s closing now
It went away somehow
Be cool if you could stay
Taxi is on its way
Drink up now time to go
God bless safe journeys home

Dance on into the night
Tears dry by morning light
Dreaming of happy days
To chase our blues away
Dance on into the light
Rest now no need to fight
Everything ends some day
Everything drifts away

And though the day is done
Your happiness and fun
Brought sunshine to our lives
Lighting up the evening sky
The laughs and jokes we shared
Helped us through when no-one cared
Warm heart and a gentle smile
A lifetime shining in your eyes

Dance on into the night
Tears dry by morning light
Dreaming of happy days
To chase our blues away
Dance on into the light
Rest now no need to fight
Everything ends some day
Everything drifts away

And when we played your song
You came and danced along
Music playing loud and wild
Moves of an excited child
Cheeky grin and risen hand
Everybody loves old Stan
Forever and a day
In our hearts you’ll always stay
