DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME (TIME PIRACY)

pirates--jack sparrow

Aarrgghh!  Tonight, an hour’s sleep pirated away in the name of DST; it happens every year.  I don’t like it, but will knuckle under like everybody else.  Why not have a tribute, (sorry, I don’t write music), or at the very least, a poem to honor the occasion.

Everybody is welcome to join in with silly dance moves and melodies.  I was thinking about “Safety Dance,” by Men Without Hats, to get this party started.  A drunken leprechaun dance might also work.  If you know any drunken leprechauns–they’re invited.

“The DST Dance”

It was
It used to be
It’s not anymore
It’s not there
Who cares?

One silly little hour
Dance it away
Gone after midnight
Nobody cares

 You can dance, you can dance
With a patch over your eye
You can dance, you can dance
Even if you don’t know why

You can dance, you can dance
Dance like you’re out of your mind
You can dance, you can dance
Leave that hour far behind

  1. In honor of your reblog–I’ll give you the other non-published verse of “The DST Dance”–“You can dance, you can dance–with your hands in your pockets: You can dance, you can dance–with your head in a bucket”

  2. I am one of the fortunate ones, our time never changes here in Saskatchewan (Canada) , I don’t understand the concept of daylight savings time anyway lol , you don’t really gain or lose an hour, you don’t really get an extra hour to sleep in as you simply go to bed an hour later, just makes no sense to this country bumpkin 🙂
