Here are the lyrics of a song.

Don’t Ask Him Why

by Tim Blair

He was afraid.
He was knocked on the head.
He was too little to know why Mom and Dad didn’t like him.
He was only five when he was sent to the hospital.

So don’t ask him why he did not cry for help
He was too little to answer the question.
He was too young to know he could ask for help.

Sometimes things go wrong in this world.
Still there must be something we can do
Something to give him hope and love.

So let’s do it. Do it. Do it.
Give him your hand.
Give him your love.
Only you and I can help him.

So don’t ask him why.
Never ever ask him why.

Isadora Duncan was born in America in 1877. She was a great dance teacher who enjoyed dancing at an early age, and even began teaching other children to dance when she was only six. Although Duncan herself stopped going to school at ten, she later had students from all over the world.

Duncan was called the mother of modern dance because she brought lots of new ideas into the dancing of her time. She believed that dance is life itself and comes from the heart. Duncan also said that dance belongs to everyone, rich and poor, young and old. That was why one time she did not agree to dance in a theater where the tickets were very expensive.

Duncan also surprised the people of her time by dancing in comfortable clothes and without shoes on. She broke the rules in many ways and gave dance a new language. Now people who are interested in modern dance are still getting new ideas from this great teacher.
