Lou has left the party,

His dancing days are over.

Marching orders have arrived,

And Lou is ready to roll,

The destination is unkown,

But the sky is clearing,

And his journey must begin,

Shafts of gleaming sunlight

Illuminate his way.

We who stand and wave goodbye

Are cleansed by tears that flow

As white light lights the way

To embrace the empty space

That now remains.

Now there is nothing left

But to keep on dancing.
