Close To You
Carpenters 1970
  (Rhythm International 927)   Nao Nittono, Rascal Araki

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square (on beat 10)
Why do birds, suddenly appear
Every time, you are near
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
, allemande and weave
Why do stars, fall down from the sky
Every time, you walk by
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you


FIGURE    Mainstream, no progression

All four ladies chain across, you turn the girl and then
Heads (sides) you promenade about halfway
Now the sides (heads) star thru, pass thru, dosado and eight chain five
(Piano)
That's why birds suddenly appear (or that's why stars fall down from the sky)
Corner swing, promenade
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
On the day that you were born, the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moondust in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue
, allemande and weave
That is why, all the girls (boys) in town
Follow you, all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you


CLOSER    B - SSD Week 1

Circle left
On the day that you were born, the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true

The men star right and roll it
And starlight in your eyes of blue, allemande and weave
That is why, all the girls (boys) in town
Follow you, all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you


TAG

Sides face grand square
Aaah, close to you
Aaah, close to you

Bow to your partner
