OPENER    Basic

Circle left
If it weren't for kids, have you ever thought
There wouldn't be no Santa Claus
Look what the stork just brought
Thank God for kids

Left allemande you know, turn your partner right and go
Left allemande, weave that ring
Thank God for kis
There's magic for awhile

*Swing your girl, promenade
(*A special kind of sunshine in a smile)
Do you ever stop to think or wonder why?
The nearest thing to heaven is a child


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru you know
4 hands around you go
When you get there now, go right & left thru
Veer left, hang on and the couples trade
Bend the line and the men lead reverse flutter wheel
Get that girl, square thru 3/4 round
Swing that corner, promenade
Do you ever stop to think or wonder why
The nearest thing to heaven is a child


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
We'd all live in a quiet house without Big Bird or a Mickey Mouse
And Kook-Aid on the couch, thank God for kids

Left allemande you know, turn your partner right and go
Left allemande, weave that ring
Thank God for kids
There's magic for a while
*Swing your girl, promenade (*A special kind of sunshine in a smile)
Do you ever stop to think or wonder why?
The nearest thing to heaven is a child


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Daddy how does this thing fly? A hundred other where's and why's
It's a love that you can't buy, thank God for kids

Left allemande you know, turn your partner right and go
Left allemande, weave that ring
Thank God for kids
There's magic for a while
*Swing your girl, promenade (*A special kind of sunshine in a smile)
Do you ever stop to think or wonder why?
The nearest thing to heaven is a child

Thank God For Kids  (1972)

If it weren't for kids
Have you ever thought
There wouldn't be no Santa Claus?
Or look what the stork just brought
Thank God for kids.

And we'd all live in a quiet house,
Without Big Bird or a Mickey Mouse,
Or Kool-aid on the couch
Thank God for kids.

Thank God for kids
There's magic for awhile,
A special kind of sunshine in a smile.
Do you ever stop to think or wonder why?
The nearest thing to heaven is a child.

Daddy how does this thing fly?
And a hundred other where's and why's.
I really don't know but I try
Thank God for kids.

When I look down
In those trusting eyes
That look to me I realize
There's a love that I can't buy
Thank God for kids.

When you get down on your knees tonight
And thank the Lord for His guiding light
And pray they'll turn out right,
Thank God for kids.
Thank God for kids.

Lyrics by Edward Futch (aka: Eddy Raven).
Recorded by Eddy Raven; The Oak Ridge Boys.
