Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Left allemande that corner, dosado your own now
The men star right one time
Pick up your partner with an arm around
Star promenade that lady round
The girls backtrack one time
Left allemande that corner
Dosado your own and then
Promenade round that ring
Every woman knows a lot of tears and joy
Comes with the wedding cake


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade go half round that ring and then
The sides go right & left thru, turn the girl
The heads square thru now four hands around you go
Dosado, swing thru and then the boys trade alone
You swing the corner girl and promenade
Every woman knows a lot of tears and joy
Comes with the wedding cake

The Wedding Cake
 
 

Don't be troubled 'bout me 'cause I'm tired
From workin' 'round the house when day is done
Don't think you failed me 'cause you can't afford
That dishwasher to make my life more fun
You know the measure of a man is
Much more than just the money he can make
And every woman knows a lot of joy and tears
Come with the wedding cake

The wedding cake is not all icing
And love and tender whispers in the dark
One slice is concern for all your dreams prayed
They won't come true and break your heart
Another slice is feedin' kids and wipin' noses
Cryin' when the doorbell rings and there are roses
Every woman knows a lot of give and take
Comes with the wedding cake

It's facin' shadows of the future
Prayin' they will fall away as we walk toward them
Searchin' for the sun
And it's long and anxious hours with the wolf at the door
Hugs and kisses when, at last, we see the dawn
So when the hands of time trace tiny lines upon our face
And lace our hair with strands of gray
We laugh and say for all who will partake
It all comes with the wedding cake

Yes, for all who will partake
It all comes with the wedding cake
Yes, for all who will partake
It all comes with the wedding cake

Lyrics by Mira Ann Smith Margaret Lewis.
Recorded by Connie Francis; Jeannie C. Riley.
