Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands and circle to the left around the hall
Walk out around the corner, then you see saw your taw
The girls star by the right hand 3/4 round you go
Left allemande the corner, then weave the ring you know
If you've been better than I've been you've been bored
Dosado then you promenade the floor
*I'm like a ship that's never left the shore
If you've been better than I've been you've been bored


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I've set out 'till my seat is getting sore
If you've been better than I've been you've been bored


*I've called until my throat is getting sore
If you've been better than I've been you've been bored


FIGURE   

Well the head (side) two ladies chain, turn that girl and you rollaway
Heads (sides) star left 3/4 round the ring
Dosado the corner lady and then star thru
Move forward up and back and then you do the right & left thru
Gonna slide thru and the corner lady swing
Left allemande, come back and then you promenade the ring
It's like my feet are nailed down to the floor
If you've been better than I've been you've been bored

If You've Been Better Than I've Been (You've Been Bored)
 
 

If you've been better than I've been you've been bored
I've been like a ship that never left the shore
I've got lots of loving left in use for years and years or more
If you've been better than I've been you've been bored

As I walked out for work today, my wife told me goodbye
She smiled her silly smile and said "Be good"
Sarcastically I said to her but only in my mind
"Maybe I'd be bad if I could"

But in this town word spreads around just like a house on fire
She'd find out if ever I were bad
You could've been better than I've been if you've never had desires
But if you've been better than I've been you've been bored

If you've been better than I've been you've been bored
I've been like a ship that never left the shore
I've got lots of loving left in use for years and years or more
And if you've been better than I've been you've been bored

I've had romantic 'ventures with the women all the time
And many are the pleasures I have had
The trouble is the fun an games are only in my mind
I'm scared to take a chance on being bad

If you've been better than I've been you've been bored
I've been like a ship that never left the shore
I've got lots of loving left in use for years and years or more
If you've been better than I've been you've been bored

If you've been better than I've been you've been bored

Lyrics by Vance Bulla.
Recorded by Dave Peel.
