WE DANCE – For BOYS & GIRLS.  Start at 1:48 and go thru 2:34
We dance, we dance …….to the music of the gods
The music of the breezes through the green platine
The murmur of the river and the roar of rain
And if the gods decide to send a hurricane

We dance to the earth, we dance to the water
The Gods awake and we take no chance
Our hearts hear the song, our feet move along
And to the music of the gods, we dance
