OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I've been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song

Left allemande then dosado your partner
The men star left once around
Turn your partner by the right hand there
Left allemande and promenade the square
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs, I write the songs


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway
Side pair will do a dosado
Cross trail thru to swing that corner lady
Left allemande and weave the ring
Songs from me just for you
Dosado and promenade her too
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs, I write the songs


TAG

I write the songs, I write the songs

(Sequence: Opener, figure twice heads, break, figure twice sides, ending)

I Write The Songs

I've been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

My home lies deep within you
And I've got my own place in your soul
Now, when I look out through your eyes
I'm young again, even though I'm very old

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

Oh my music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
Music fills your heart
Well, that's a real fine place to start
It's from me, it's for you
It's from you, it's for me
It's a world wide symphony

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I am music, and I write the songs

Lyrics by Bruce Johnston.
Recorded by Barry Manilow.
