This music is hard to get, but gee itís worth getting !

I first heard it at The Boat Club in Hervey Bay where it was being sung

by the resident artist there. I fell in love with it and tracked it down.

Youíre lucky, all YOU have to do is listen to it. and dance to it...too easy!


Hope you enjoy it, and the simple dance I have written to it.

Donít forget, if you have trouble getting the music† just email



See you on the floor sometime....†† Jan
