The World Was Dancing (Brown Jason Robert)

"Tomorrow you'll be here my love Tomorrow we'll be one Tomorrow we can follow through On all that we've begun Tomorrow we'll be free my love We'll never be afraid" Daddy bought a store out in Pittsburgh And he called his boss and quit And we tried to convince him The risk was too much But he still was convinced Of his own Midas Touch So he bought this piece of shit I packed up and went off to Princeton With a scholarship in hand Well, I'd call up my folks every weekend or so And I'd tell them how college was helping me grow Which was just what they had planned And then I met this girl named Amy With a smile as bright as day And while the Pirates beat the Orioles We fell in love and danced the night away "Tomorrow we'll be free my love We'll never be afraid" And we were dancing The world was dancing Dancing Daddy lost his shirt out in Pittsburgh As my sophomore year rolled round Well he had hired some schmuck That he knew from the war And one weekend he left him In charge of the store And he burned it to the ground And then I met this girl named Lisa On a couch at Alpha-Mu But then she transferred to Macalester So it's just as well that Amy never knew "Tomorrow we'll be free my love We'll never be afraid" And we were dancing The world was dancing Dancing Daddy got his job back that summer So he hid his pride and pain And they threw him a party And baked him a cake And they sent me a ticket To come winter break But I guess I missed the plane And since I'd spent so long with Amy We got ourselves engaged But then I thought I can't, This can't be right Cause dreams get burned down overnight I wasn't quite prepared to choose, To take that risk and maybe lose And since I couldn't tell her why I hit the road And never said goodbye "Tomorrow you'll be here my love Tomorrow we'll be one Tomorrow we can follow through On all that we've begun Tomorrow we'll be free me love We'll never be afraid" And I was dancing And they were dancing The world was dancing Dancing
