    What! the girl I adore by another embraced?
    What! the balm of her breath shall another man taste?
    What! pressed in the dance by another's man's knee?
    What! panting recline on another than me?
    Sir, she's yours; you have pressed from the grape its fine blue,
    From the rosebud you've shaken the tremulous dew;
    What you've touched you may take. Pretty waltzer--adieu!

And the dancing has begun now,
And the dancers whirl round gaily
In the waltz's giddy mazes,
And the ground beneath them trembles.

O give me new figures! I can't go on dancing
The same that were taught me ten seasons ago;
The schoolmaster over the land is advancing,
Then why is the master of dancing so slow?
It is such a bore to be always caught tripping
In dull uniformity year after year;
Invent something new, and you'll set me a skipping:
I want a new figure to dance with my Dear!

In a light fantastic round.

On with the dance! let joy be unconfin'd;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet.

To brisk notes in cadence beating
Glance their many-twinkling feet.

It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance. It is the dream afraid of waking that never read more

It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance. It is the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance. It is the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give. And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.
