I Write The Songs
Barry Manilow 1979
  (Chaparral 501)   Ken Bower

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I've been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song

Left allemande then dosado your partner
The men star left once around
Turn your partner by the right hand there
Left allemande and promenade the square
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs, I write the songs


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway
Side pair will do a dosado
Cross trail thru to swing that corner lady
Left allemande and weave the ring
Songs from me just for you
Dosado and promenade her too
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs, I write the songs


TAG

I write the songs, I write the songs

(Sequence: Opener, figure twice heads, break, figure twice sides, ending)
