Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoiselle

Allemande and weave
And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell
"C'est la vie" said the old folk
You know you surely never can tell


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around then
Make a right hand star
Heads star left to the corner, slide thru
Square thru 3
Swing and promenade
"C'est la vie" said the old folk
You know you surely never can tell


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
They furnished off an apartment with a two room Kmart sale
The fridge was crammed with T.V. dinners and Ginger Ale

Allemande and weave
But when Pierre found work the little money comin' worked out well
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell


TAG

"C'est la vie" said the old folk
You know you surely never can tell

You Never Can Tell, (C'est La Vie)
 
 

It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoiselle
And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

They furnished off an apartment with a two room Roebuck sale
The coolerator was crammed with T.V. dinners and Ginger Ale
But when Pierre found work the little money comin' worked out well
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

They had a hi-fi phono, boy, did they let it blast
Seven hundred little records, all rock, rhythm and jazz
But when the sun went down the rapid tempo of the music fell
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

They bought a souped-up jitney, t'was a cherry-red fifty-three
They drove it down to New Orleans to celebrate their anniversary
It was there where Pierre was wedded to the lovely mad'moiselle
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

It was a teenage wedding and the old folks wished them well
You could see that Pierre did truly love the mademoiselle
And now the young monsieur and madame have rung the chapel bell
"C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell

Lyrics by Chuck Berry.
Recorded by Chuck Berry; many others.
