This is a sweet little song  by Freddie Fender…..

And he’s right when he says  “Staying In Love” is the hardest part of it all.  IT IS!

You don’t find that out until you get a bit of age on your bones… and by then, it’s too late!

You’d think we would learn by experience, but how many times do we make the same mistakes

all over again?   My Mum used to say ‘You can’t put an old head n young shoulders…….

But sometimes you can’t put an old head on OLD shoulders!  (-:        

Know what I mean????

 

Anyhow, hope you enjoy this little dance.

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
