Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around that corner girl, and see saw your own
Join hands circle left you go rollin' round your own
Allemande that corner and do a dosado
Four men star by the left, you go once around and then
Turn partner right and a go left allemande
Come back and swing your own and promenade the land
Keep on singin', don't stop singin', you're gonna be a star someday
Go home and balance out, swing that girl around


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head pair promenade a halfway around the land
In the middle a right & left thru and turn that girl again
Do a flutter wheel and then sweep 1/4
You pass thru, you dosado once around and then
Allemande a left that lady, turn your partner by the right
Swing that corner girl and promenade 'em there
Keep on singin', don't stop singin', you're gonna be a star someday
Go home and balance out, swing that girl around

Keep On Singing
 
 

(Keep on singing don't stop singing)
(You're gonna be a star some day)
(You're gonna make a lot of people happy)
(When they come to hear you play)

I don't remember mama
She died when I was born
We lived in a one room shanty
But daddy tried to make it a home
When I was only six years old
I started singing in the streets
People would throw me pennies
So I could daddy make ends meet
They said

Keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play
They said keep on singin
Keep the bells a ringin

Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough song in this old world
So spread your song around
By the time I was 10 years old
I had a rock n roll band
Daddy's eyes were growing dim
But I didn't understand
He said he would be so proud of me
Each time he'd hear us play
At night he'd pull me to his side
And daddy would always say

Keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play
They said keep on singin
Keep the bells a ringin

He didn't have much money
But things didn't seem so bad
I felt just like the queen of the world
When I was with my dad
Then one rainy April night
Daddy called me to his side
He held me with his tremblin hands
Right before he died

Keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play
They said keep on singin
Keep the bells a ringin

Keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play
They said keep on singin
Keep the bells a ringin

Lyrics by Danny Janssen and Bobby Hart.
Recorded by Austin Roberts; Helen Reddy.
