Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refuse to shine
People tell me there ain't no use in tryin'

Do an allemande left and weave
Now my girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true

Swing and promenade
You'll be dead before your time is due


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) you promenade halfway around now
Walk in and then you square thru 4
Go all the way and then you do a right & left thru the outside pair
You veer to the left and ferris wheel
Hey centers square thru it's 3 hands go round now
Swing your corner, then you all promenade
He's been working and slaving his life away


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
We gotta get out of this place!
If it's the last thing we ever do!
We gotta get out of this place!
Girl, there's a better life...

Do an allemande left and weave
We gotta get out of this place!
(If it's the last thing we ever do!)

Swing and promenade
We gotta get out of this place!
Girl, there's a better life for me and you!

You know it's true, Baby...

We Gotta Get Out Of This Place
 
 

In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refuse to shine
People tell me there ain't no use in trying
Now my girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You'll be dead before your time is due
I know

Watch my daddy in bed and tired
Watch his hair been turning gray
He's been working and slaving his life away
Oh yes, I know it

He's been working so hard
I've been working too, babe
Every night and day
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
'Cause girl, there's a better life
For me and you

Now my girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true, yeah
You'll be dead before your time is due
I know it

Watch my daddy in bed and tired
Watch his hair been turning gray
He's been working and slaving his life away
I know, he's been working so hard
I've been working too, babe
Every day, baby - whoa
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life
For me and you

Somewhere baby
Somehow I know it baby

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and you
Believe me baby
I know it baby
You know it, too

Lyrics by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.
Recorded by The Aminals.
