Christmas Comes But Once A Year   (Acme 102)   Scott Bennett
OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Christmas time comes but once a year
Ooh I'm so happy, my kids are happy too

Allemande left and weave
**It'll take the next six months to pay the bills
Every time I think about it, it gives me chills
I don't care 'cause Christmas comes but once a year


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'm getting ready to have myself a ball
I'm going dancing, gonna dance to every call


**I'm gonna think about New Years Day
I don't care what I have to pay
Let the good times roll 'cause Christmas comes but once a year


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you promenade halfway round you know
Down the middle square thru
All the way around, right & left thru
Veer left, ferris wheel
Square thru 3 hands
Corner swing and promenade
I don't care 'cause Christmas comes but once a year


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
(Musical break)
Allemande left and weave
It'll take the next six months to pay the bills
When I think about it, it gives me chills
I don't care 'cause Christmas comes but once a year


TAG

Let the good times roll
'cause Christmas comes but once a year
