Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*A light shone in the night somewhere ahead
Blue turning to green and then it was red

Circle left
**And stirring the night love music played
Allemande left, promenade
***The light that shone in the night
Was the penny arcade


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*First I thought it a dream that I was in
Lost, lost in a sea of glass and tin


**So, dipping my hand in the back of my jeans

***I grabbed a handful of coins to feed those machines


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade, go 3/4 round the ring
Side two will do the right & left thru
Double pass thru, 1st 2 left, next 2 right
Make a line go forward up & back
Star thru, square thru 3 hands and then
Corner swing promenade around and then
It played and it played, played all the time
Roll up and spend your last dime


CLOSER (and TAG)    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
Step up and play each machine seemed to say
As I walked round and round the penny arcade

Men star by the right, once around tonight
Allemande left and weave around that ring
And the music played round the penny arcade
Swing and promenade
It played and it played, it played all the time
Roll up and spend your last, roll up and spend your last
Roll up and spend your last dime

Penny Arcade Lyrics ID: 3842

If I had a penny every time you told a lie
And made me cry for you
I could spend a lifetime
In a penny arcade

If I had a penny every time you make me blue
And hurt me through and through
I could spend a lifetime
In a penny arcade

Every day I try to walk away and kiss you bye bye, baby
(Bye bye, baby, bye bye)
You would be surprised to know the runaway attempts I've made
(Bye bye, baby, bye bye)

But if I had a penny every time I've turned around
And headed back to you
I could spend a lifetime
In a penny arcade

I would spend a lifetime
In a penny arcade
I would spend a lifetime
In a penny arcade

Every day I try to walk away and kiss you bye bye, baby
(Bye bye, baby, bye bye)
You would be surprised to know the runaway attempts I've made
(Bye bye, baby, bye bye)

But if I had a penny every time I've turned around
And headed back to you
I could spend a lifetime
In a penny arcade

In a penny arcade
In a penny arcade

Lyrics by Boudleaux Bryant.
Recorded by Cristy Lane.
