Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Allemande left and alamo style, you balance out and in
Swing thru and forward 2 and balance once again
Swing thru and forward 2 and turn thru for me
Left allemande now, weave the ring
You turn and go, walk out the door now
You'll do a dosado that girl and promenade that lady home
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give
I'll survive, I will survive


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade and go 'bout halfway
Come down the middle with a right and left thru and take your lady home
A full square thru 4 hands around you do
Dosado one time around, swing thru
Boys will trade, boys run right now
Do a partner trade and all will promenade go around the ring
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give
I'll survive, I will survive

I Will Survive Lyrics ID: 97

First I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
And so you're back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I'd've known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I!
I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I will survive

Hey, hey!

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me, somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you
And so you felt like dropping in
And just expect me to be free
Now I'm saving all my loving for someone who's loving me

Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I!
I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I will survive

Oh...

Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye?
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I!
I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I will survive

I will survive
