There’s an old woman dancing with a young man. The little kids are watching the dancers. That looks like a gal that works up there. She works up there? I wouldn’t doubt it.
If I were there I would hear a piano. Those people are dancing because they simply enjoy it. (Gene smiles and his eyes light up.) They’re dancing because of a special event. It’s an anniversary of some sort. But I don’t think they know each other. They’re dancing to “Blue Moon.” (Bert smiles.) Those two kids are watching those people dancing and thinking ‘Grandma’s got some moves!’
That’s the only way to dance is if you love the dance and the partner. They’re dancing because it’s their birthday. They’re taking the whole thing in. I think she is happy.
Two little boys are watching the dancers. They’re not going to participate because children don’t generally do that. The two children are bored. Those dancers look like they are pretty happy. That young man was dancing with his wife before they changed partners.
The next think that’s going to happen is there’s going to be a lot of smooching because they’re dancing close to each other!
