Ten excited tap dancers
promenade along a boardwalk
of white keys.
One stops to rest on a black bench.
The Master of these agile puppets
commands it to rise again and
meet its partner at the other end.
As the dancers begin to tire,
the whimsical master
explodes with cosmic satire!
Giggles shake and sizzle along
The slap-happy dancers flap their feet
for a swingin' jig.
Listeners, observing this Milky Way magician
and his rhythmic assistants,
pair up and join in.
The galactic guru of piano,
swept up in the lively, lovely motion,
decides to set his puppet dancers free.
The chaotic chords created
overtake all of the boogieing bodies
and jazz them well through the night.
