Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again

Men star right, turn it one time around you go
Allemande left and weave the ring
I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade, go halfway around
Down the middle square thru count 'em four
All the way, then a right & left thru turn the girl
Pass thru, trade by
Touch 1/4, scoot back and go
Swing the corner and promenade home
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew

Men star right turn it one time tonight
Left allemande and weave the ring
Thank you for being a friend (I want to thank you)
**Thank you for being a friend (I want to thank you)
**Thank you for being a friend (I want to thank you)
**Thank you for being a friend


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*And when we both get older
With walking canes and hair of gray

Thank You For Being A Friend
 
 

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant

I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

If it's a car you lack
I'd surely buy you a Cadillac
Whatever you need, anytime of the day or night

I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

And when we both get older
With walking canes and hair of gray
Have no fear, even though it's hard to hear
I will stand real close and say,
Thank you for being a friend

(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Let me tell you 'bout a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend

And when we die and float away
Into the night, the Milky Way
You'll hear me call, as we ascend
I'll see you there, then once again
Thank you for being a ...

Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
Whoa, tell you about a friend
(Thank you right now, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna tell you right now, and tell you again)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna thank you, thank you, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
