A Left and a Right

Oh to dance and glide like a swan on a lake,
But with two left feet I think it's a mistake.
Don’t you worry; I have an idea my wife said to me
I won’t be long, just you wait and see.
She initialled my socks in red, a left and a right
And told me to picture that image in sight,
Then dance and pretend I was her gallant white knight.
I still haven’t the grace of a swan it is true
But I do have only one left foot in my shoe.
