Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

All four ladies chain across
Turn the girl and rollaway
Circle left around again
Four ladies rollaway again
Left allemande and weave the ring
The winner takes it all, the loser's standing tall
Allemande and weave
Beside the victory
That's a destiny


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) star left in the middle to the corner dosado
Swing thru and then boys run
Ferris wheel
Center four pass thru, touch 1/4
Scoot back, scoot back again
Star thru and promenade
*A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

The Winner Takes It All
 
 

I don't wanna talk
About the things we've gone through
Though it's hurting me
Now it's history
I've played all my cards
And that's what you've done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That's her destiny

I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I'd be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules

The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It's simple and it's plain
Why should I complain.

But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

I don't wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You've come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence

But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all...

Lyrics by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus.
Recorded by ABBA.
