What is it about music,
that changes our behavior?
Is it based on the divine,
or a man-made savior?
Rap music excites the mind,
the melody encases a riddle,
It’s beat pierces our protective wall,
and seduces the heart in the middle.
Then there’s the heart of Dixie,
New Orleans or Kansas City Blues.
It’s more than a cello or saxophone,
and young men in saddle shoes.
Break out the fiddle and banjo,
and return to our country roots.
Let’s line dance in a club,
in our jeans and cowboy boots.
The old Opera House was a stage,
offering a mix of acting and singing.
Sopranos and baritones sending vibrations,
shattering glass and leaving ears ringing.
There is a variety of music genre,
for discerning women and men.
Whether they’re older than old,
or as young as nine or ten.
So, find yourself a comfortable chair,
dim the lights, break out a drink.
Let your ears slide across the room,
like they’re gliding on an ice rink.
