Asking a girl to dance

It’s an easy thing,
To walk across a floor,
To ask a girl to dance.
And if she is agreeable,to dance,
And if not,to slip away,
Bruised,but willing to fight another day.

It’s not so simple after all,
To ask a girl to dance.
To walk across a floor,
To stand before her friends,
Who look on this as sport.
To see him wriggle on a pin.
to become the butt end of their jokes.

The courage that it takes,
To cast aside your fears.
To step into the void,
To ask a girl to dance.
To understand the risks,
And carry on unbowed.

We only can salute,
These warriors of the night.
These champions of the boards.
Who walk across a floor.
With hearts upon their sleeves,
To ask a girl to dance.
