I have written to this song in the past, 2006 I think it was. 

But this dance is for Sylvia from Holland who sent me the song this week.

It’s always MY pleasure to write for other people’s pleasure, in fact,

I get a real buzz out of it,  so I hope you like the dance Sylvia. 

It’s not a hard dance at all but the Elvis knees at the end might take

a bit of mastering …..  Just a bit more practice, that’s all it takes!  (-:

 See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
