    Sultry swaying hips
    briskly tapping toes
    syncopated dips
    performed by dance floor pros

    can i have this dance?
    the girl looks at him
    tales of lost romance
    in the form of ghetto hyms

    speakers thumping loud
    bodies snuggled near
    under the noisy crowd
    sweet nothings in the ear

    watch yo'self
    you ount know nothing 'bout that
    somebody call for help
    he 'bout to through out his back

    captivating lyrics
    everybody's song
    elevated spirits
    dancing all night long

    hundred degree heat
    still nobody stops
    got to move my feet
    and feel the body rock

    you talk about friday nights
    i'll say heaven on earth
    you talk about enjoying life
    and i'll say for everything it's worth

    Happy People Baby!!!

    Dance away all your worries, fears, hatreds...

    That's what life is about. Enjoying living. Moving.

    I felt this.

    You really captured that feeling of stepping out on a Friday night, feeling the people, the music, the dancing, just kickin back and having a good time. I enjoyed this write poet, and the lively way you brought it.

    I appreciate all the love yall showed for this poem. It was inspired by the new R. Kelly CD. I hope it has inspired someone to grab there significant other by the hands and groove or maybe hang out with the girls or the fellas and enjoy the night like it's there last.

    Thanks for the Love,

    NittyGritt
