DREAM  SKATER


ice skates Pictures, Images and Photos

JUST BEING ON SKATES, MADE MY HEART SING
ROLLER AND ICE SKATING WAS MY THING
I STARTED WHEN I WAS FIVE OR SIX
AND LEARNED TO SPIN AND DO AXLES AND TRICKS

DANCED THE WALTZ THE TWOSTEP AND SHOTTISH TOO
DIDTHE SPLITS AND CARTWHEELS ON THE ICE IT'S TRUE
I WOULD'NT TAKE MY SKATES OFF, EVEN TO EAT
SOON AS I COULD I WAS BACK ON THE STREET

                                    IT WAS MADE OF ASPHALT AND SMOOTH AS ICE                                      
FOR ROLLERSKATING IT WAS SO NICE.
WHEN I GOT OLDER ,WE'D GO TO THE ARENA
AND SKATE TO THE MUSIC ,LIKE A BALLERINA

IT WAS MY WHOLE LIFE AT THAT TIME FOR ME
IT MADE ME HAPPY AND FANCY FREE
EVENTUALLY I MARRIED, A MAN WHO COULD SKATE
HE HAD WORKED AT A RINK IN OHIO STATE

HE WAS GOOD ON HIS FEET BUT SKATED STRAIGHT
WHEN THE SKATES WERE OFF ,HIS DANCING WAS GREAT
HE NEVER ONCE ASKED ME TO GIVE UP MY DREAM
BUT I HUNG UP MY SKATES  AND DREAMS OF GLORY
I LOVED HIM THAT MUCH--- END OF MY STORY
