FIGURE    C4, R-H lady progression

Circle left
If I could write a song and have the whole world sing along
Oh how happy I would be

Allemande your corner, turn partner by the right
Men star left once around for me
Star promenade her, take your girl along
Girls backtrack for me (go twice around)
The second time you meet her, dosado your sweet
Do a curlique, men run
Allemande your corner, walk on by your own
Swing the right hand lady, promenade
If I could write a song and have the whole world sing along
Oh how happy I would be

Swing your girl
Oh how happy I would be

If I Could Write A Song
 
 

If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
Think of all the music there would be.
The earth would start to ring, and everyone would sing
A song of peace and love and harmony.
Three billion voices singing together, what a happy sound.
And just to think, it's my music makin' the world go round.

I'd be number one and I would never need a gun,
I would do it with a melody,
If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
How wonderful this world would be.

If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
Think of all the music there would be.
The earth would start to ring, and everyone would sing
A song of peace and love and harmony.
Three billion voices singing together, what a happy sound.
And just to think, it's my music makin' the world go round.

People feeling sad would have a reason to be glad,
I would do it with a melody.
If I could write a song and get the world to sing along,
How wonderful this world would be.

Lyrics by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield.
Recorded by Carol Burnett.
