Combo Tango!

by Calef Brown

Flamingos on the Roof by Calef Brown

Dance lesson number one.
The Combination Tango.
Listen to the lingo.
This is how the steps go:

Boogie to the banjo.
Bop to the bongo.
Freeze like an igloo.
Stomp like a buffalo.
Drop like a yo-yo.
Swing like a golf pro.
Flip like a hairdo.
Tumble like a domino.
Swivel on your kneecap.
Wobble like a mud flap
Take a little catnap.
Do it all again!
