The Lyrics

Homage to Isabelle Palmer from "An American Girl: Isabelle Dances into the Spotlight"
Dance, Isabelle!
If she will
Dance, Isabelle!
On her ballet shoes
Dance, Isabelle!
If she can
Dance, Isabelle!
Like a 21st century girl

Her friends are going to see her in the ballet
Give 'em a reason to give her a second chance
See her up on stage
Let them think she's a sage

Dance, Isabelle!
If she wants
Dance, Isabelle!
Like she's got some good ballet music
Dance, Isabelle!
Like it's FIFA
Dance, Isabelle!
Like she needed it all week

Her friends are going to buy tickets to her ballet performance
Ask 'em to go to the theater
Wear those ballet shoes in the middle of the night
Her friends may think she's right

Dance, Isabelle!
Like there's no tomorrow
Dance, Isabelle!
At the School of American Ballet
Dance, Isabelle!
Like she's gonna be in the ballet
Dance, Isabelle!
Like it's FIFA

Email her family that she's well rested
Quote the things that jesus mentioned
Wash her face and her legs neatly
To get her up on her feet

I Saw U2 Live 2X - March 24, 2020 - Report this comment
When I first saw U2 the Pretenders opened up for them. They played this number and you made a terrific re-write (not actually a parody, more a tribute) of this song. Kudos.
