Ballroom of Romance -Celtic Woman

On summer nights when the barn is high,
the stars are twinkling in the sky.
Take a walk by the riverside and let the music be your guide

Follow where the pathway takes you, on your bike or arm in arm
Through the crossroad, to the dance hall, down the road to Murphy’s barn.

We plant the seeds and till the soil
We pray for rain and pray for sun
Now it’s time to stop a while, forget your worries everyone

Once the barn was full of grain, then old Murphy took the chance
Cleaned it out and hired a band, now it’s the ballroom of romance.

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Leave your troubles at the door
We will dance until the morning light
Come take my hand and we’ll take the floor

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Around the floor, now one two three
We will dance until the break of dawn so take my hand and dance with me.

The week is over, work is done
So now it’s time to have some fun
The place is old and there’s money owed
Tonight forget that heavy load

The sky is clear, without a cloud
The air, it hums with music loud
The moon is full and shining bright
They’ll come from far and wide tonight

Will I get to steal a dance with the one who puts me in a trance?
Now, at least, you get to dance down at the ballroom of romance

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Leave your troubles at the door
We will dance until the morning light
Come take my hand and we’ll take the floor

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Around the floor, now one two three
We will dance until the break of dawn so take my hand and dance with me.

Shined his boots and combed his hair
Chosen something fine to wear

By cap and glove, could this be love?
Is there magic in the air?

The one that chases every day
Now is lost for words to say
To the girl in the flowing dress
This night they never will forget

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Leave your troubles at the door
We will dance until the morning light
Come take my hand and we’ll take the floor

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Around the floor, now one two three
We will dance until the break of dawn so take my hand and dance with me.

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Leave your troubles at the door
We will dance until the morning light
Come take my hand and we’ll take the floor

Whack for the danna, swing your partner
Around the floor, now one two three
We will dance until the break of dawn so take my hand and dance with me.
