Dance In The Rain



Don't wait for the sunshine, dance in the rain.
Open a bottle and drink the champagne.

Don't wait for vacation, dance in the rain.
Savor this instant and simply raise cain.

Don't wait for the rapture, dance in the rain.
Live out a glory and stroll memory lane.

Don't wait for the windfall, dance in the rain.
Endure each failure and delight in gain.

Don't wait for the triumph, dance in the rain.
Prize any second and spot the germane.

Don't wait for the birthday, dance in the rain.
Celebrate pleasure and remember pain.

Don't wait for retirement, dance in the rain.
Map out a voyage and sail off to Spain.

Don't wait for tomorrow, dance in the rain.
Take vicissitudes and never complain.
