My mother Marie told me about her first dance with my daddy Earl at a WWII -USO dance before he shipped out to Germany. That led to 53 years of marriage 8 kids and a mess of grand and great grandkids... I had me a first dance with my gal Mary about 27 years ago and counting...It's a powerful thang...


Take a Little Chance
lyrics by Robert Louis Crane 4-17-11

Verse # 1
Why don't you take a little chance , one tiny step out on that floor
I'm just asking for one dance, You know it's what you came here for
All your toe tapping with your feet, Tells me you want leave your seat
Why don't you take a little chance on a lovely new romance ?

Verse # 2
Let me take you by the hand, just put arm around my waist
come on they're starting up the band, can't you feel your heart start to race
Soon we'll be dancing on the floor, if you'll just open up that door
why don't you take a little chance, on a lovely new romance ?

I used to see you around the town , with that other guy
I heard he broke your heart and he made you cry,
I know you just afraid , you'll be hurt again
but you gotta start somewhere
Why don't yo take a little chance

Verse #3 -
I've seen the way you look at me, when I catch you in a glance
I know you feel it can't you see, this is our moment let's take a stance
we'll hold each other dancing slow, we'll feel the heat and then we'll know
It's right to start our new romance, Why don't you take a little chance ?
