Jim's Note: Whew! Where to begin? The story behind this song deserves its own website. However, my part in the story started on Friday, August 11, 2000, when I was driving home along Main South Road (in Adelaide), and noticed a printed sign on the back window of the car in front of me. The sign read: Dance like no-one is watching.

Aha! thought I, another secret message to me from my muse

I was immediately taken with the line, and within minutes began writing this song.

Shout in joyous abandon, raise your voice to the sky,
Ignore the critic inside you, now you are ready to fly.
Paint in riotous colours, days that are many and fun,
Laugh in the face of the cynics, donít follow where others have run.
No! Donít follow where others have run. (Come onÖ)

CHORUS
Dance like no-one is watching, sing like no-one is here.
Laugh like no-one is crying, free your body from fear.
Dance like no-one is watching, sing like no-one is here.
Laugh like no-one is crying, free your body from fear. (That's rightÖ)

Free your body from fear.

Dance to a different drummer, it's never too late to begin,
Remember a favourite summer, play the child within.
Dream like all are believers, let your spirit run free,
Happiness flows like a river, today Iím starting with me.
(Thatís right!) Today Iím starting with me (Come on...)

CHORUS

Shout in joyous abandon, raise your voice to the sky,
Ignore the critic inside you, now you are ready to fly.
Paint in riotous colours, days that are many and fun,
Laugh in the face of the cynics, donít follow where others have run.
No! Donít follow where others have run. (Come on, andÖ)
