The Grandparent Glide

Lyrics by Barbara Juster Esbensen
Composed and sung by Kai Esbensen
Arranged and conducted by Jonathan G. Smith

The music     Big Band
She flashes
a glance     She
holds out her hand
they dance

Her light hand
on his shoulder
his arm
round her waist
They stop growing older
their fingers tight-laced

Slowly their toes
print a dance
on the rug
and everyone knows
when he gives her a hug

How can they tell
when to stop     when
to start?
--I know him so well!
--I know her by heart!
