OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

oh you must have been a beautiful baby
yeah you must have been a beautiful child

well those men star right and then go rolling along
and do an allemande left that corner lady, weave that old ring
when it came to winnin' blue ribbons

cause baby take a look at you now
