Dancing in the Plague Lyrics

About Dancing in the Plague

A tribute to the human spirit: people who quite simply danced in the face of death. During the medieval Black Death epidemics, which claimed one-third of the European population, some people responded by having huge bonfires at night, and dancing themselves into a frenzy.

Dancing in the Plague Lyrics

(Whitaker/Kelley 2016)

Verse 1

We don’t know when the disease will strike us,

truly we might not be here, be alive,

next week, tomorrow the bulbs might smite us,

we never know when . . . . . .  Black Death arrives.

 

Chorus

Life, always capricious, full of love and hate,

now becomes a fatal whirlwind of fate.

 

Verse 2

The dances always get out of control,

we think if we dance with full abandon,

we can dance far away from the black hole.

But life and death  . . . . . . always go in tandem.

 

Chorus

Life, always capricious, full of love and hate,

now becomes a fatal whirlwind of fate.

 

Play Dancing in the Plague

 

So dance:

 

Instrumental

 

So dance

 

Dance, my humans, dance

 

Full abandon

 

Full abandon

Bridge – not done like the nursery rhyme – use same voice as god or death during instrumental

Ring around the rosie,

Pockets full of posies,

Ashes, ashes,

We all fall down.

 

Ending

Life and death, always goes in tandem,

Life and death, always goes in tandem,

Life and death, always goes in tandem,

Life and death, always goes in tandem,

Play Dancing in the Plague
