Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
We're sitting on top of the world
Just rolling along, hey, singing a song

Walk around the corner lady, see saw your own
Men star right go once around
I just phoned the parson, "hey, Par, get ready to call"
Left allemande your corner, then promenade that hall
We're sitting on top of the world
Just rolling along and singing a song


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well the heads promenade go halfway now
Come down the middle, pass the ocean, extend
The girls trade, swing thru you know
Boy run right, now tag the line and do
Girls go left, boy go right, do an allemande left for me
Well you come on back and swing the next and promenade you see
We're sitting on top of the world
Just rolling along and singing a song


TAG

We're rolling along, just singing a song

I'm Sitting On Top Of The World
 
 

I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along, just rolling along.
I'm quitting the blues of the world,
Just singing a song, just singing a song.

Glory, hallelujah, I just phoned the parson,
"Hey, Par, get ready to call!"
Just like Humpty Dumpty,
I'm ready to fall.

I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along, just rolling along.
I'm quitting the blues of the world,
Just singing a song, just singing a song

Composed by Ray Henderson.
Lyrics by Sam Lewis and Joseph Young.
Recorded by Les Paul and Mary Ford (1953).
