Carnival Dance Lesson

Poem from Dancing in the Rain by John Lyons

One two three,
you can dance like me.

With arms held high
that's how you start,
let deh music touch your heart.

One two three,
you can dance like me.

Yuh muss be relax,
I insist, wine wid de riddum.
jerk yuh waist.


Shake up, jump up,
BACCHANAL!
Lehwe celebrate, is carnival.

One two three,
you can dance like me.

Jump in the band,
let us have some fun,
happy times have now begun.

One two three,
you can dance like me.

Boodum-di-dum!
Boodum-di-dum!

You can dance like me.
