Happy Feet

Why do Black people dance so well?

Darlin', when you know that you're no longer sufferin'.
When you know you're no longer enslaved.

When you know you're a freeman...
When you have the time to rejoice...

Once you've understood you're no longer oppressed,
that the pain is long over,
and you're free to tap, sing, twist, express:

You'd dance too.
