Slow Dance - Charles Mwewa

Like two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle,
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
Like the hard ground that the harmer muzzle
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
The silence mixed with a soft dance
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
Each gyration is tone of sweetness’ ounce
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
The way you break from side to side
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
And induce the sanely feelings that hide
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
Surely laughter and joy have been married
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
And all the fear and worry have been buried
Flesh to flesh, shin to skin
Oh, this daughter was well-taught
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
The best, the bright, she has caught
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
Tenderly, sweetly, your love is truly divine
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin
Dance, again, dance, and all shall be just fine
Flesh to flesh, skin to skin!

Charles Mwewa (20th century) Zambia
