Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Give me a job, give me security
Give me a chance to survive

Men star right
Left allemande and weave the ring
My mother and father, my wife and my friends
You see them laugh in my face
But I've got the power and I've got the will
I'm not a charity case


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade halfway
Square thru
Right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by
Touch 1/4, scoot back, scoot back
Swing and promenade
If it takes all that to be just what I am
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Make me an offer that I can't refuse
Make me respectable, man

Men star right
Left allemande and weave the ring
I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keepin' my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all that to be just what I am
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keepin' my back to the wall
If it takes all that to be just what I am
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Allemande and weave
I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keepin' my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all that to be just what I am
Well I'm gonna be a blue collar man


TAG

Well I vow be a blue collar, gotta be a blue collar
Gonna be a blue collar man

Blue Collar Man
 
 

Give me a job, give me security
Give me a chance to survive
I'm just a poor soul in the unemployment line
My God, I'm hardly alive

My mother and father, my wife and my friends
I see them laugh in my face
But I've got the power, and I've got the will
I'm not a charity case

I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all that to be just what I am
Well, I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Make me an offer that I can't refuse
Make me respectable, man
This is my last time in the unemployment line
So like it or not I'll take those

Long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my back to the wall
If it takes all that to be just what I am
Well, I'm gonna be a blue collar man

Keeping my mind on a better life
Where happiness is only a heartbeat away
Paradise, can it be all I heard it was
I close my eyes and maybe I'm already there

I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my back to the wall
All that to be just what I am
Well, I'm gonna be a blue collar man
You don't understand

I'll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keeping my eye to the keyhole
If it takes all that to be just who I am
Well I vow to be a blue collar, gotta be a blue collar
Gonna be a blue collar man

Believe it

Lyrics by Tommy Shaw.
Recorded by Styx.
