Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Desmond has a barrel in the market place
Molly is a singer in a band

Four boys star by the right in the middle and turn it around
You do an allemande left come on you weave the ring
Ob la di, Ob la da life goes on, Bra
Swing your girl and then you promenade
Ob la di, Ob la da life goes on, Bra
La la how the life goes on


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle, it's 4 hands around
Gonna meet that corner pair and turn thru
The centers left turn thru, come on put centers in
Cast off 3/4, make a line of 4, move up to the middle and back
Pass thru, do a u-turn back, slide thru and you clap your hands
Swing your corner, then you all promenade
Ob la di, Ob la da life goes on, Bra
La la how the life goes on


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
Desmond takes a trolly to the jeweller's store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her:

Allemande left and weave the ring
Ob la di, Ob la da life goes on, Bra
Swing your girl and then you promenade
Ob la di, Ob la da life goes on, Bra
La la how the life goes on


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it:

Allemande left and weave the ring
Ob la di, Ob la da life goes on, Bra
Swing your girl and then you promenade
Ob la di, Ob la da life goes on, Bra
La la how the life goes on


TAG

Ob La Di Ob La Da
 
 

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand.

CHORUS:
Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

Desmond takes a trolly to the jewellers store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing.

Chorus:

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones.

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band.

Chorus:

And if you want some fun, take obladi blada.

Lyrics by John Lennon & Paul McCartney.
Recorded by The Beatles.
