Maddie and London's Music Monday: Hold Me Closer, Tiny Dancer by Elton John

It's Sunday morning in the Roxiticus Valley, and we're getting ready for Music Monday as we head off to Maddie and London's three-and-a-half hour rehearsal for their upcoming Garden State Ballet spring concert. In honor of sweet little ballerinas performing in ballet recitals everywhere, we've chosen Elton John's "Tiny Dancer."



Here are the lyrics if you'd like to sing along:

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

Jesus freaks out in the street
Handing tickets out for God
Turning back she just laughs
The boulevard is not that bad

Piano man he makes his stand
In the auditorium
Looking on she sings the songs
The words she knows the tune she hums

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you and you can hear me
When I say softly slowly

Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway
Lay me down in sheets of linen
you had a busy day today

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand
