i saw you there one wonderful day...
you took my heart and you threw it away
i took my very first swing lesson last night.
i've been wanting to take swing for a while, even though it's so '96.
because when i listen to the music - and i love the music - all i want to do is dance.
and i don't know how to dance properly.
but it was my new year's resolution to stop thinking and start acting,
and now i can do the basic step, a right turn and a left turn.
soon i'll be able to do a little bit of lindy hop and jitterbug, too.
my instructor is so totally retro and adorable, with his slicked back hair and sailor jerry tattoos.
i had so much fun in class, then i came home and practiced, dancing to keely smith singing what is this thing called love?
oh! and another good one: i want you to be my baby by louis jordan.
i'm carrying a torch for you
that's hotter than an oven
it's time for you and me to do a little turtledovin'
