A dance, a dance a dance of loce. I dance to dance a dance of peace. I dance to dance I dance the dance. When there is doubt, there is hope. When there is fear, there is love. When there is hate, there is peace. When there is suffering, there is the dance. Dance all women. Dance all of you. I dance to dance a dance of peace. I dance to dance. I dance the dance
