For Stavros, Cypriot Bellydancer

Shiftetelli, shiftetelli
Dance the shiftetelli tonight
Dance it on land and sea
In the dance you have become me

Dance it with the Aegean fisher boys
Keep women out of this
Dance it like the Sultan's harem boys
I'm but small fry / You the big

Dance! Dance it like you do
Dance it so I become you
