I Got Rhythm

I got my two feet:

Dancing to the waves

Pulping energy.

And let the stores creak

Under the bastions

As we tap through them.

Help the colors bloom

Go smile and ask them

To paint with us too.

Skip all over town

Scream, yodel, and shout

Cause we got rhythm

Et vous comprendez?

J’ai mon deux peuds

Et nous sommes heuruex

Parce que j’ai rythme —

Et ils ne l’ont pas!


This is the 100 Songs Project, a 100-day writing challenge based on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs. Every day, I write a short poem, prose piece, or play based on, reacting to, rejecting, accepting, or doing something related to one of the songs in the top 100 list.
