"Ballroom Dancing" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
Well I used to smile when I was a pup
Sailing down the Nile in china cup
With the recipe for a lovely day
Sticking out my back pocket

But it wasn't always such a pretty sight
'Cause we used to fight like cats and dogs
Till me made it up in the ballroom

Ballroom dancing made a man of me
One, two, three, four
I just plain adore your
Ballroom dancing, seen it on TV
I got what I got from ballroom dancing
Big b.d.

Well I used to fly when I was a kid
And I didn't cry if it hurt a bit
On a carpet ride to a foreign land
At the time of Davy Crockett

But it wasn't always such a pretty sight
'Cause we used to fight like cats and dogs
Till me made it up in the ballroom

Ballroom dancing made a man of me
One, two, three, four
I just plain adore your
Ballroom dancing, seen it on TV
I got quite a lot from ballroom dancing
Big b.d.

Well went so fast and we all grew up
Now the days have passed in the china cup
Are the memories of another day
And I wouldn't want to knock it

But it wasn't always such a pretty sight
'Cause we used to fight like cats and dogs
Till we made it up in the ballroom

Ballroom dancing made a man of me
One, two, three, four
I just plain adore your
Ballroom dancing, seen it on TV
I got quite a lot from ballroom dancing
Big b.d.

    General CommentI think its about having arguments when you're a child, then just forget about them so quickly and become best friends again.
