Cue Sheet


Allemande left with the corner, go allemande thar
Go right & left, the boy back-up and you've got a right hand star
Shoot the star a full turn to the corner, box the gnat
Grand right & left, and you're gonna move it round the track
Oblah-di, oblah-da, life goes on, turn her by the right hand
Allemande left, come back and promenade, hup, hup
Oblah-di, oblah-da life goes on - hey

Take that lady home and don't you roam


Head ladies chain to the right, and you turn the lady fair
The new head ladies chain across, and turn 'em over there
Head couples star thru, pass thru and then
Go right & left thru and you turn the lady fair, pass thru
* Allemande left, dosado, why now
Swing the corner girl and promenade, hup, hup
Oblah-di, oblah-da life goes on, hey

Take that lady home and don't you roam


Trade-by, allemande left, come back and swing
Swing with this girl and promenade, hup, hup

("LADIES CHAIN to the RIGHT": The nominated couples do a "Two Ladies Chain"
with the couple on their Right: "Head Ladies Chain Right" - Ladies 1 & 2,

Ob La Di Ob La Da

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

Desmond takes a trolly to the jewellers store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing.


In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones.

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band.


And if you want some fun, take obladi blada.

Lyrics by John Lennon & Paul McCartney.
Recorded by The Beatles.
