Keith Harling has a great voice and I love this song… it’s a big people’s fairy story

Hope you enjoy the dance in spite of the fact that it is unphrased.. At least

You don’t have to worry about tags or restarts. Some people will thank me for that!

Others will no doubt do the opposite… oh well, you can’t please all of the

People all of the time….. Just aim for some of the people some of the time – that works!

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
