Can't Have Nothin'
  (Quadrille 876)   Ken Burke

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I must have woke up on the wrong side of the bed
It's nine a.m. and I hear bells in my head

Men star right and roll it one time around you go
Left allemande and you weave
It's late, my boss is going to hit the fan
Swing your baby, promenade the land
I try to crank my pickup, but she ain't runnin'
Ahh, I can't have nothin'


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands go
All the way you do a dosado
Swing thru, boys run right
Half tag, scoot back around tonight
Boys run right, slide thru, clap your hands
Swing your corner, promenade the land
I try to crank my pickup, but she ain't runnin'
Man, I can't have nothin'


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
My baby calls and says how could you forget
Three months exactly since the day that we met

Men star right and roll it one time around you know
Left allemande and you weave
She says a night on the town will do
Swing your baby, promenade her too
I'd love to, honey, but my bank roll's busted
Dial tone, I can't have nothin'


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I get to work, I'm only two hours late
My boss is waitin' for me there at the gate

Men star right and roll it one time around you know
Left allemande and you weave
Son, you just wasted your last chance
Swing your baby, promenade the land
Now he's given my position to his wife's first cousin
Ahh, I can't have nothin'


TAG

I'd love to, honey, but my bank roll's busted
Man, I can't have nothin'
