Someone died today at the Ice Capades
And the crowd’s applause was the cause
Someone died today at the Ice Capades
Her heart just stopped, her body dropped

She looked so pretty when she took the ice
Her life, it seemed renewed
Thought she’d live forever when she laced up her skates
But people seldom do
She lit the city when she took the ice
With her double lutz and her sacrifice

There’s a movie in my town
About a girl from my town
About a girl from my town, about a girl
Who while dressed as Bo Peep, she died before our eyes

The flowers I’d brought her were used on her grave
But that scene didn’t make it, it just didn’t play
The part of the girl was cast in L.A.

When she died that day at the Ice Capades
My school was closed to see the show
Someone died that day at the Ice Capades
A girl from my class and we shattered like glass

She looked so pretty when she hit the ice
Her life, it seemed renewed
Thought she’d live forever when she laced up her skates
But people seldom do
With her glide, she awoke a divinity
With her figure eight, she drew infinity

Now she’s walking on the virgin snow
She’s taking it very slow
So she won’t disturb the animals that hide
She’s walking on the virgin snow
She’s taking it very slow
With her sheep by her side and her ice skates untied
