How can there be a better summer?
When the vast desert is accompanied by childish melody
When the mountain peak is surrounded by innocent laughter
When love is sown in the coconut groves
When hope is left on the field
While memory packed in the suitcase
Are you willing to be with us?
To light up the children’s eyes
In the shabby schoolhouse
Near the yellowed books and the broken pencils
We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once
So please take our invitation to a bright dance
