Harry Chapin: Dancing Boy Meaning
Dancing Boy Lyrics
You dance without a smile.
Kid you may not have great rhythm,
But you sure got style.
Just four years old and still it seems,
You've got it figured out.
When daddy sings, and then you dance,
anonymous May 10th 2011 !⃝
Chapin said that when his son was very young, he used to get up on stage at concerts and "dance"--that is, basically, rock from his left foot to his right foot. The song is about capturing that moment forever, even though he knows that his son will soon grow past this stage.
