Dance high on clouds, little arabesque girl

Chassé away all the cares in the world

Pirouette faster, until everything blurs,

And laugh when you fall down, arabesque girl

You see life’s beauty when no one else does

Between flat feet and failed leaps you still find love

There’s a world you’ve discovered in tendus and splits

And you live to glissade, to relevé, to kick

So if dance brings you happiness, arabesque girl,

Keep dancing forever, and spread joy through the world
