lyrics

The Prelude:

Uh oh, Mary
Are you doing what you want to?

Back in school, girl?
You’re a fool, girl
… if it breaks your heart

Can you tell me what you’re thinking?
Do you even know? Do you even know?

But answer me this …
Are you happy now?

Did everyone tell you what to do?
Well you just tell them where they can go …

Mary:

And Mary, put on your dancing shoes
You used to be fantastic
You’d pirouette so gracefully
… so beautiful a dancer

You’d dance your way to stardom
And become famous overnight
Your life would be a party
… and you wouldn’t have to struggle if you’d …

Only put on your dancing shoes and
Let your feet take over
Just like a star that burns so bright
You’d be a supernova

… and then life would be so easy
For you’d be doing something you like
And you would be so happy that it
Makes me wonder why …

You never tried

Yeah you’d dance your way to stardom
And become famous overnight
Your life would be one long party
… and you wouldn’t have to struggle if you’d …

Only put on your dancing shoes
You’re sure to be a winner
With the talent you possess
You’d reach the top in minutes

… and then life would be so easy
For you’d be doing something you like
And you would be so happy that it
Makes me wonder why …

You never tried

So Mary, put on your dancing shoes

Butterfly:

Butterfly
As you rise amongst the trees
Are you looking at the woods
Or possibly a way

To break free

You can change your world
You can change your world

Do you like the life you lead
Living somewhere in between
The earth and sky?

Are you far from understood?
Do you wonder if you should, butterfly?

Refrain:

So, Mary put on your dancing shoes …

about

Kevin White

After a stint in Special Ops, working covertly in the world's most dangerous hot spots, a chance meeting with a Zulu medicine man launched an interest in music.

For the healing power of song, as evidenced by Coca Cola's "We'd like to teach the world to sing", followed up by Pepsi's "The world sings out of tune", is instrumental-not in a literal sense, but a musical one; literally. Please enjoy.
