Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I've got the world on a string, I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got that string around my finger
What a world, what a life - I'm in love

Allemande left and weave that ring
I've got a song that I sing and I can make the rain go
Swing your girl and promenade her
Lucky me, can't you see - I'm in love


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru
Life's a wonderful thing
Dosado your corner one
Swing thru and then the boys you run right
Ferris wheel, a right & left thru and turn your girl
Square thru 3/4 'round, your corner swing
Hold her hand and promenade her too
Lucky me, can't you see - I'm in love


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
(Saxophone solo - 32 beats)
Allemande left and weave the ring
Life's a wonderful thing
You swing your girl and promenade
I'd be a silly so-and-so, if I should ever let you go


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I've got the world on a string, I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got that string around my finger
What a world, what a life - I'm in love

Allemande left your corner weave that ring
I've got the world on a string, I'm sitting on a rainbow
Swing your girl and promenade her too
What a world, what a life - Oh, what a world, what life


TAG

Oh what a world, what a life, cause I'm
Oh in love, I'm in love

I've Got The World On A String Lyrics ID: 3240

I've got the world on a string
I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life - I'm in love

I've got a song that I sing
I can make the rain go
Any time I move my finger
Lucky me, can't you see - I'm in love

Life is a beautiful thing
As long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so-and-so
If I should ever let it go

I've got the world on a string
I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world, what a life - I'm in love

Life is a beautiful thing
As long as I hold the string
I'd be a silly so-and-so
If I should ever let it go

I've got the world on a string
I'm sitting on a rainbow
Got the string around my finger
What a world,
Man, this is the life
Hey now, I'm so in love

Composed by Harold Arlen.
Lyrics by Ted Koehler.
Recorded by Cab Calloway; Bing Crosby; Louis Armstrong; Frank Sinatra; many others.
