OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies gonna promenade one time around
Come back and swing with your date
Hey, join up hands, make a ring and circle left you can travel
Left allemande and you weave
* Even though the pain and heartache
Seem to follow me wherever I go

Swing with your girl and promenade her home
**Though I try to hide my feelings, girl
They always seem to show


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* Every time I think I've had enough
I start heading for the door


**There's a fairly strange vibration
Piercing me right to the core


* Never say goodbye, never, never say goodbye
Oh, oh baby


**Tell me why, girl, why is it so
Tell me why, why is it so


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade roll it halfway around there
Come in and square thru 4, go all the way now
A right & left thru, you veer left and ferris wheel
Come on and square thru now count 'em 3/4 round
You gotta swing that corner girl and promenade
Tell me why, girl, why is it so

Tell me why, why is it so

Never Can Say Goodbye

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

Even though the pain and heartache
Seems to follow me wherever I go
Though I try and try to hide my feelings
They always seem to show
Then you try to say you're leaving me
And I always have to say no...

Tell me why (tell me why)
Is it so (is it so)
That I
Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

Every time I think I've had enough
I start heading for the door
There's a very strange vibration
Piercing me right to the core
It says "turn around you fool
You know you love her more and more"

Tell me why (tell me why)
Is it so (is it so)
Don't wanna let you go!

I can never can say goodbye, girl (never can say goodbye, girl)
Ooh, ooh baby (don't wanna let you go girl)
I never can say goodbye
No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no, ooh!
Oh! I never can say goodbye, girl (never can say goodbye, girl)
Ooh ooh, never can say goodbye
No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no, ooh!

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

I keep thinkin that our problems
Soon are all gonna work out
But there's that same unhappy feeling
And there's that anguish, there's that doubt
It's the same old "did ya hang up?"
Can't do with you or without

Tell me why (tell me why)
Is it so (is it so)
Don't wanna let you go

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

Lyrics by Clifton Davis.
Recorded by The Jackson 5.
