INTRO

Chain the ladies over and back

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I got rhythm, I got music
Men star right, roll it one time around
And do an allemande left with the corner
Weave the ring
I got good times, no more bad times
I got my girl, who could ask for anything more?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around
Dosado the corner girl now
Touch 1/4, scoot back and then
Boy run right, and now pass the ocean there
Swing thru and then swing thru again
Swing the corner lady, promenade now
I got my girl, who could ask for anything more?


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Old man trouble
I don't mind him
You won't find him
'Round my door

Allemande and weave
I got starlight, I got sweet dreams
I got my girl, who could ask for anything more?


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Old man trouble
I don't mind him
You won't find him
'Round my door

Allemande and weave
I got rhythm, I got music
I got my girl, who could ask for, who could ask for more?

I Got Rhythm
 
 

In this fast and troubled world
We sometimes lose our way
But I am never lost
I feel this way because

I got rhythm, I got music
I got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?
I've got good times, no more bad times
I've got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?

Old man trouble (old man trouble)
I don't mind him (I don't mind him)
You won't find him 'round my door
I've got starlight (I've got starlight)
I've got sweet dreams (I've got sweet dreams)
I've got my girl
Who could ask for, who could ask for more?

Old man trouble (old man trouble)
I don't mind him (I don't mind him)
You won't find, you're never gonna find him 'round my door
Oh, I've got rhythm (hey! I've got rhythm)
I've got music (hey! I got music)
I got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?

In this fast and troubled world

I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
{fade}

Verse:
Days can be sunny,
With never a sigh;
Don't need what money
Can buy.

Birds in the tree sing
Their dayful of song.
Why shouldn't we sing
Along?

I'm chipper all the day,
Happy with my lot.
How do I get that way?
Look at what I've got:

Refrain:
I got rhythm,
I got music,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more?

I got daisies,
In green pastures,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more?

Old Man Trouble,
I don't mind him -
You won't find him
'Round my door.

I got starlight,
I got sweet dreams,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more -
Who could ask for anything more?

Composed by George Gershwin.
Lyrics by Ira Gershwin.
