C'est La Vie
Chuck Berry; many others 1957
  (Golden Eagle 34)   Ken Bower

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished them well
Now the men star right, you're doing swell
Left allemande and weave
You could see that Pierre did really love the mademoiselle
Swing your girl, promenade
C'est la vie, says the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around
Square thru 4 hands, go right & left thru
Veer left, ferris wheel, square thru 3
Swing your corner, promenade
C'est la vie, says the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across the ring, chain them back home
Join your hands and make a ring, circle left
Left allemande and weave that ring, promenade
C'est la vie, says the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell


TAG

C'est la vie, says the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell
