I read a poem that reminded me of a song that I grew up listening to. Released in 1960 by Billy Bland, “Let the little girl dance” is a musical time-warp back to a much simpler existence when songs had no reason to mention shaking your ass.

Being a wallflower is still a common affliction suffered by those of us who don’t have the nerve to be seen by others. Like, myself. Huge wallflower here.

I recommend listening to this song, because it will make you happy, even if you don’t like the oldies.

Happy Monday!

“Let The Little Girl Dance”

(Little wallflower on the shelf)
(Standing by herself)
(Never had the nerve to take a chance)
(So let the little girl dance)

Let the little girl dance
Let the little girl dance
She never danced before
So let her on the floor
(So let her on the floor)

Let the little girl dance
Let the little girl dance
She wants to give it a try
So let the little girl by
(So let the little girl by)

She’s been a little wallflower on the shelf
Standing by herself
Now she got the nerve to take a chance
So let the little girl dance

Let the little girl through
She wants to pass by you
Buddy, can’t you see
She wants to dance with me
(She wants to dance with me)

[Instrumental Interlude]

She’s been a little wallflower on the shelf
Standing by herself
Now she got the nerve to take a chance
So let the little girl dance

Let the little girl through
She wants to pass by you
Buddy, can’t you see
She wants to dance with me
(She wants to dance with me)

(Little wallflower on the shelf)
(Standing by herself)
(Never had the nerve to take a chance)
Let the little girl dance
(Let the little girl dance)
