Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
That's life, that's what all the people say
Riding high in April, shot down in May
But you know I'm gonna change that tune
When I get back on top
, allemande left and weave
Well, that's life, and as funny as it seems
Swing your lady, promenade round the ring
But I won't let it get me down
Cause this fine old world keeps spinning round


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Here's where the heads square thru 4 hands you go
All the way around and then, touch 1/4
Follow your neighbor, go ahead and spread, fan that old top
Boys move up, right & left thru, send her dixie style
Take a peek and then trade the wave and then
Swing the corner lady there, and then you all promenade
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's Life
 
 

That's life (that's life), that's what all the people say
You're ridin' high in April, shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top, back on top in June

I said that's life (that's life), and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down
'cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), I tell you I can't deny it
I thought of quitting, baby, but my heart just ain't gonna buy it
And if I didn't think it was worth one single try
I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself layin' flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), that's life and I can't deny it
Many times I thought of cuttin' out but my heart won't buy it
But if there's nothin' shakin' come this here July
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball a-and die

My, my!

Lyrics by Kelly Gordon and Dean Kay.
Recorded by Frank Sinatra.
