Taste the mist of daybreak,
As you race the rising sun.
Look no further than mid-morning,
And make no plans past noon.

This is no day of reckoning,
And with any luck
It wonít even lead you there;
Just take your lover by the hand,
And find a step that you can share.


Dance you a soft-shoe,
Across the porch this day,
Down the stairs,
With a dancerís flair,
To the streambed ye will stray.


Drop your clothes,
Itís sweltering,
But you donít need me to tell ya that,
Just leave emí stay,
Right where they lay,
But you can keep your hat.


Curtsy low, she does,
As he stands there and drinks her in,
Sheís the joyful picture of a former beauty queen,
But heís just tall and thin.


Promenade if you wish,
Or do-si-do if he'll take the lead.
It wonít be long into the water youíll fall;
And there fulfill your needs.


Dance you a soft shoe,
Across the porch this day,
Down the stairs ,
With a dancerís flair,
To the streambed ye will stray.

i was drawn in by the romance until you mentioned dancing naked in the poison ivy and then all i could so was itch in sympathy.
