Dancing in the basement...

Never thought I'd dance to songs my own kids produced...

That "voice" sang out
And the proud mother cried
The bass boom boomed
Then the heart beat tried
To quicken, then slow down
Such talent, who knew?

That dancing
In the basement
As a kid with sis
I'd imagine a day
That I would do this

Have sons who'd produce
Music I could dance to
And blow me away
With talent so true

So up we all got
Up on our feet
Dancing and dancing
To the pulsating beat
