Sides face, grand square *Did you ever lie and listen to the rainfall Did you ever own a homemade apple pie? Did you ever watch a child while he was praying? Just don't let the good life pass you by Left allemande and weave around that ring now In and out around and promenade so fine Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor? Just don't let the good life pass you by
*Did you ever hold a hand to stop it's trembling? Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky? Did you ever hold a child while she was sleeping? Just don't let the good life pass you by
*Did you ever see the funny side of dancing? Did you turn around and knew not why Did you ever goof a square and blame your corner Just don't let the good life pass you by
FIGURE Basic, R-H lady progression
Headssquare thru and get me four now You make a right hand star and keep in time The heads star left, on around today Meet the sides, right & left thru and then... Rollaway, pass thru, trade by and swing now Swing that girl around, you promenade so fine Look my friend there's happiness in living Just don't let the good life pass you by
Friends, don't let the good life pass you by
