THIRTY-EIGHT

You've heard of the twist
You've heard of the tango
You've heard of the foxtrot
You've heard of the mambo.

But See-Far Woman
has a dance all of her own-

Three steps to the left
eight steps to the right
3 for triple time
8 to balance body and mind.

She calls this dance -
Number 38 - the dance of fate.

In the U S of A life is frantic
And the country itself is gigantic
The UK would fit
THIRTY-EIGHT times in it
(If you moved it across the Atlantic)
