Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
But to settle down and write you a line

Do a left allemande and ya dosi your own
Do a left allemande and you weave
You wear it well, a little outta time, but I don't mind
You wear it well
There ain't a lady in the land so fine...oh my


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Remember basement parties, your brother's karate
The all day rock and roll shows


*Well I ain't forgettin' that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin'


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads lead right, do the right & left thru
Veer left and all ferris wheel
The centers star thru and you lead to the right
Everybody do the right & left thru
You square thru three
Left allemande new corner, all promenade
You wear it well
A little old fashioned, but that's all right


TAG

Left allemande and swing
Now I'm eating my heart out
Trying to get a letter to you

You Wear It Well
 
 

I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
But to settle down and write you a line
I've been meaning to phone you but from Minnesota
Hell, it's been a very long time
You wear it well
A little old fashioned, but that's all right

Well, I suppose you're thinking I bet he's sinking
Or he wouldn't get in touch with me
Oh, I ain't begging or losing my head
I sure do want you to know
That you wear it well
There ain't a lady in the land so fine, oh my

Remember them basement parties, your brother's karate
The all-day rock and roll shows
Them homesick blues and radical views
Haven't left a mark on you
You wear it well
A little out of time, but I don't mind

But I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin'
Now I'm eatin' my heart out
Tryin' to get a letter through

Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on
I'm gonna write about the birthday gown that I bought in town
When you sat down and cried on the stairs
You knew it did not cost the earth, but for what it's worth
You made me feel a millionaire
And you wear it well
Madame Onassis got nothing on you, oh no

Anyway, my coffee's cold and I'm getting told
That I gotta get back to work
So when the sun goes low and you're home all alone
Think of me and try not to laugh
And I wear it well
I don't object if you call collect

'Cuz I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin'
Now I'm eatin' my heart out
Tryin' to get back to you

I love ya, I love ya
I love ya, I love ya
Oh, yeah!

After all the years I hope it's the same address
Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on

Lyrics by Rod Stewart and Martin Quittenton.
Recorded by Rod Stewart.
