Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    A2

4 ladies chain go straight across that ring
All 4 couples flutter wheel you know
You're going to roll it around the land, circle up 8 and then
Left allemande and weave the ring
You can have her, boy, I don't want her
You do a dosado then promenade
She only wanted someone to play with
She never did love me anyway


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads star thru then pass thru
Circle 4 make a line
Walk up to the middle and come on back,
Star thru, swing thru
Boys run right, tag the line face left
Wheel & deal, now swing thru there
Swing the corner then promenade
She only wanted someone to play with
She never did love me anyway


TAG

Hey, you can have her, I don't want her anyway

You Can Have Her
 
 

Well, you can have her, I don't want her,
She didn't love me anyway.
She only wanted someone to play with
But all I wanted was love to stay.

Well, you get stuck with the wrong woman
There's only one thing that you can do:
Just dig a hole and jump right in it,
And pull the ground right over you.

(Chorus)
Well, you can have her (you can have her)
I don't want her (I don't want her),
She didn't love me (didn't love me)
Anyway (anyway).
She only wanted (only wanted)
Someone to play with (one to lay with)
But all I wanted (all I wanted)
Was love to stay (was love to stay).

The girl I love, she up and left me,
She ran away with my best friend.
Comes home at night just for an hour
When daylight comes she's gone again.

(Chorus)

Life without love is mighty empty,
But confession's good for the soul.
I'd rather have love that I can cling to
Than have the world and all of it's gold.

(You can have her) you can have her
(I don't want her) I don't want her,
(She didn't love you) she didn't love me, (anyway) anyway.
(She only wanted) she only wanted
(Someone to play with) someone to play with
(But all I wanted) Ohhhhhhhh!
(Was love to stay) Ohhhhhhhhh!

You can have her (you can have her)
I don't want her (I don't want her)
She didn't love me (didn't love me)
Anyway (anyway)
She only wanted (only wanted)
Someone to play with (someone to play with)
But all I want (all I want)
All I want (all I want)
All I want (all I want)
All I want (all I want)

Lyrics by Bill Cook.
Recorded by Roy Hamilton (1961); Jim Ed Brown (1966).
