Steps In Time

Tap Tap Tap Tapping
Dancing feet on the city street
This is how we dance
In pools of light on the corners of the street.

Shim Sham Shimmy Shine
tap tap Tap Tapping
shake shake your shoulders
tap Tap tap Tapping
a riot of dancers
thieving steps and style

Shim Sham Shimmy Shine
do the back beat rhythm
In Anacrusis Shim Sham Shimmy Shine.
Shim Sham, Push that beat.
Tap Tap do a half beat.

Come all you brothers and sisters
watch Mr. Bo jangle Shim Sham Shimmy Shine,
watch Michael do the back beat in Anacrusis time.
Oh don't forget those fiddles strumming up the beat,
for our Irish brothers and sisters
Tall and Straight,
T'is is how we learn dancing to the beat.

Fiery Flamenco over the dance beat
exuding  passion and fire for each
makes fire dance  tap tap tapping to the
heavy pounding Dance-club style beat
heavy pounding Dance-club style beat.
