Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Four ladies promenade go one time around
And get back home and swing your boy, everybody swing
All join hands, circle to the left go walking talking
Do an allemande left the corner girl, and weave the ring
I said rock, they call it rock 'n' roll baby here to stay
Swing your honey and promenade
I love to rock 'n' roll
I been a movin' and a groovin' and getting it both night and day
I like to boogie woogie baby, just rock 'n' roll my life away


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) couples pass the ocean and girls trade, recycle
Everybody double pass thru and cloverleaf
Double pass thru one more time and
Leaders trade, dosado, do an eight chain four
I said rock, they call it rock 'n' roll baby here to stay
Swing your honey and promenade
I love to rock 'n' roll
I been a movin' and a groovin' and getting it both night and day
I like to boogie woogie baby, just rock 'n' roll my life away


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I got a gal called Nelly, she's really chili pepper hot
She knows how to reel it and knows how to rock
Come on baby, you know I like some long, I like some lean
I like the way that you shake that thing

Four boys promenade go one time around
And get back home and swing your girl and promenade
I been moving and grooving
And getting it both night and day

Rockin' My Life Away
 
 

From 1492 to 1998
I threw a rock 'n' roll party on my last birthday
Feels good rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin' and I'm havin' fun night and day

Streamline, fleetline, military brat
I got the general's daughter, taught her where it was at
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin' and I'm havin' fun night and day

I know a gal from Texas, she chili pepper hot
She knows hot to reel it and knows how to rock
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin', havin' fun night and day

You know I like to party and I like to have fun
And like the Killer, I gotta rock on
Come on! Rockin' my life away
Movin' and groovin', I'm havin' fun night and day

You know I like some long and I like some lean
I like the way that you shake that thing
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin', I'm havin' fun night and day

I got to have it one more time fellas!

From 1492 to 1998
I throw a rock 'n' roll party on every birthday
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
Said I'm movin' and groovin', havin' fun night and day
I'm rockin', rockin'
I'm rockin', rockin' my life away
I'm movin' and groovin', I'm gettin' some night and day
I love it!

Lyrics by Mack Vickery.
Recorded by George Thorogood And The Destroyers.
