I've Got The World On A String   (Thunderbird 179)   Bob Bennett
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain, turn the girl and then
Join hands, circle left, go walking round the ring
Ladies center, men sashay, circle left and then
Ladies center, men sashay, left allemande and weave
*Well no one else can love me like my baby can
Dosado, promenade go walking round the land
*So if you see me smile and you don't understand
I've got the world on a string and it's tied to my hand


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Side (head) couples right & left thru, turn the girl (Backaway) & then
Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around my friend
Dosado the corner, go full around & then
Swing thru, go 2 by 2, and the boys run right
Now couples circulate, we'll wheel & deal my friend
Pass to the center, square thru 3/4 and then
Corner swing, promenade, go walking round the land
I've got the world on a string and it's tied to my hand


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*The moon and stars are gone and the sun is in its place
Dosado, promenade with a smile on your face
The one I love most of all is sleeping peacefully
And I thank my lucky stars that she belongs to me


TAG

*I've got the world on a string and it's tied to my hand
