Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Young man, there's no need to feel down...I said
Young man, get yourself off the ground, and then

Left allemande come back a dosado
Left allemande and weave
Young man, won't you listen to me, and then
Swing the lady, promenade don't you see
You can stay there and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands, dosado make an ocean wave
Girls trade, recycle, star thru, right & left thru
Square thru 3/4, swing and promenade
I said young man, won't you listen to me
Young man, be what you want to be (1st and 3rd figure only)


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Lyrics

Young man, there's no need to feel down
I said, young man, take yourself off the ground
I said, young man, 'cause you're new in this town
There's no need to be unhappy

Young man, there's a place you can go
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys
Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make life a dream
But you got to know this one thing!

No man does it all by yourself
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf
And just go there, to the Y-M-C-A
I'm sure they can help you today

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys
Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, I was...I was down with the blues
I felt no man cared if I were alive
I felt the whole world was so jived

That's when someone walked up to me
And said, young man, take a walk up the street
There's a place there called the Y-M-C-A
They can start you back on your way

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

They have everything for you men to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys

Y-M-C-A
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Lyrics by Jacques Morali, Henri Belolo and Victor Willis.
Recorded by The Village People.
