Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I'd like to build the world a home and furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and two white turtle doves

You do an allemande left, the ladies star, the gents you stay right there
Same little corner allemande and weave around the square
It's the real thing, what the world was today
Dosado her that way, now the gents star left
It's once around the ring you go, same gal you promenade
Promenade that lady round, right back home I say


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company


*I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
A song of peace that echos on and never goes away


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) go up and back, a 1/2 square thru that way
Do a right & left thru, turn the girls and then you roll away
You box the gnat, hold on tight, then a right & left thru so fine
Eight chain thru across the set, straight on down the line
It's the real thing, what the world was today
That's the way it will stay
, number nine you swing
You swing that gal around and around, promenade you know
Promenade that lady round, when you're home...

I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (In Perfect Harmony) Lyrics ID: 959

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
For peace throughout the land

(4th Verse included in Hillside Singers Version)

Put your hand in my hand
Let's begin today
Put your hand in my hand
Help me find the way

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company

Lyrics by Bill Backer, Billy Davis, Roger Greenway and Roger Cook.
Recorded by The Hillside Singers and The New Seekers.
