OPENER   

Single file promenade
Young man, there's no need to feel down
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground

Face the partner dosado, back to back and go
Reverse the dosado and reverse single file go
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground
I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town

Face partner dosado
Reverse the dosado settle on down


FIGURE   

Circle left
*Young man, there's a place you can go
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough

Couple number one rip and snort
Through the arch go till you are home
Partner right with a right arm turn
Corner by the left, then promenade your own
**You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?


**I said, young man, you can make real your dreams
But you've got to know this one thing!


*No man does it all by himself
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf


**And just go there, to the Y.M.C.A.
I'm sure they can help you today


*Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, I was down and out with the blues


**I felt no man cared if I were alive
I felt the whole world was so jive


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Single file promenade
(hands up) Y-M-C-A, Y-M-C-A
Face the partner dosado
Reverse the dosado, reverse single file go
(hands up) Y-M-C-A, Y-M-C-A
Face partner dosado, reverse the dosado

YMCA Lyrics ID: 756

Young man, there's no need to feel down
I said, young man, take yourself off the ground
I said, young man, 'cause you're new in this town
There's no need to be unhappy

Young man, there's a place you can go
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys
Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make life a dream
But you got to know this one thing!

No man does it all by yourself
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf
And just go there, to the Y-M-C-A
I'm sure they can help you today

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys
Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, I was...I was down with the blues
I felt no man cared if I were alive
I felt the whole world was so jived

That's when someone walked up to me
And said, young man, take a walk up the street
There's a place there called the Y-M-C-A
They can start you back on your way

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Lyrics by Jacques Morali, Henri Belolo and Victor Willis.
Recorded by The Village People.
