OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I don't want your lonely mansion with a tear in every room
All I want's the love you promised beneath the haloed moon

Circle left
But you think I should be happy
Left allemande, swing and promenade
And hide myself in sorrow while you play your cheating game


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The sides square thru four hands now
Meet your corner, make a right hand star
Sides star left once around and go
Meet your corner, touch 1/4 right there
Scoot back, hinge 1/4, now the girls trade twice
Swing and promenade
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies promenade that inside
Gonna get back home and swing your man around
Join hands and circle to the left go walking 'round
Left allemande and weave the ring
You can't buy my love with money
Swing your girl and promenade her back home
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine
And I dare not drown my sorrows in the warm glow of your wine
You can't buy my love with money

Swing your girl and promenade her back home
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine
