As a child I played the playground like a boombox.

Back and forth through the stations, tuning in to the hardknocks.

The swings made me feel in control when I played.

Music soothes the soul. My highs and my lows, a good grade!

Always knew that aviation could understand my song….

The ground seems so far down yet I held on.

Swinging my legs, I led the need for speed….

The other playground lovers pumped harder, hoping to catch lead.

A little more momentum and happiness will get out of its seat…

And all the playground dancers will be "Swinging To The Beat."
