She'd come to my house And dance in the hall With the music up loud Against the light on the wall I danced beside her Feeling no shame We were in costume And this was a game She'd put on her skirt Of layers of chiffon The top of the umbrella had come off So I put that on We'd dance together then An awkward ballet She was 20 years older than I was But still we did play She was 20 years older than me And many times my size But it's her little feet I remember And the look in her eyes Once when I saw her She made me a doll Of ribbon and paper and ink And lace, I recall I danced beside her Feeling no shame We were in costume And this was a game I think of her now I'm older I still love to dance Something will shine through the body If you give it a chance
