Dance to your own tune

Matt Starking 1987 (Africa)



walk your own walk
and talk your own talk
create your own song
and sing along
for there is nothing wrong
play your own drum
and dance to your own tune
for a man who cannot
think for himself
is easily threw to the wind
but a house built on a rock
cannot be easily moved
the foolish man's pride
makes him a greedy person
so he causes treason
but the wise lives
for a reason
the bravery of a man
makes his enemies retreat
so be on your feet
and play your own beat
for after all not every song
is so sweet
