Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Hey there, Delilah, what's it like in New York City?
I'm a thousand miles away but girl, tonight you look so pretty

Men star right, one time around
Allemande left and weave the ring
Hey there, Delilah, I've got so much left to say
*Swing your girl around and promenade that way
We'll have it all
We'll have the life we knew we would


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*If every simple song I wrote could take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around you go
Lead to the right with a right & left thru
Turn the girl you know
Veer to the left, couples circulate one time
Bend the line
And a right & left thru, slide thru
Square thru to three, swing the corner lady and promenade for me
We'll have it all
The world will never be the same


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Oh, it's what you do to me
Oh, it's what you do to me
Oh, it's what you do to me

Four ladies promenade
Hey there, Delilah, I've got so much left to say
Swing that girl around and then you promenade that way
We'll have it all
The world will never be the same

Hey There Delilah
 
 

Hey there Delilah
What's it like in New York City?
I'm a thousand miles away
But girl, tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can't shine as bright as you
I swear it's true

Hey there Delilah
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it's my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you're to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don't you miss me
Two more years and you'll be done with school
And I'll be making history like I do
You'll know it's all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here's to you
This one's for you

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me.

Lyrics by Tom Higgenson.
Recorded by Plain White T's.
