Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
We're just some poor boys
We just got into town
We don't know just where to go
We've been round and round

Allemande left the corner girl
Run home you dosado, four boys
Promenade in the middle of the ring you know
Well turn the partner right and the corner allemande
Come back swing and you promenade her
(why don't you) take a chance (come on) take a chance
(Honey) take a chance it's very easy


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Four ladies chain the ring, you gonna turn there with your girl
Heads (sides) promenade half way round the world
Down the middle and star thru, pass thru for me
Allemande left with your left hand and a
Right and left grand you see on the 3rd hand
Turn thru and you look to the corner swing
Swing a little girl and you promenade her
(Why don't you) take a chance (come on) take a chance
(Honey) take a chance it's very easy


CLOSER    Mainstream

Four boys promenade in the middle of the ring
And you come on around swing a little girl I sing
Join up hands circle to the left go movin' round
Allemande left with your left hand you gotta weave,
Gotta weave, gotta weave the ring (why don't you)
Take a chance (come on) take a chance,

Swing with the girl and you promenade her
(Why don't you) take a chance (come on) take a chance
(Honey) take a chance

Sides face, grand square

Take A Chance On Me Lyrics ID: 1930

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down

If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(That's all I ask of you honey)
Take a chance on me

We can go dancing, we can go walking, as long as we're together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking, you'd get to know me better
'Cause you know I've got
So much that I wanna do, when I dream I'm alone with you
It's magic
You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can't let go

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down

If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(Come on, give me a break will ya?)
Take a chance on me

Oh you can take your time baby, I'm in no hurry
I know I'm gonna get you, you don't wanna hurt me
Baby don't worry, I ain't gonna let you
Let me tell you now
My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
It's magic
You say that I waste my time but I can't get you off my mind
No I can't let go
'Cause I love you so

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down

If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa ba-ba
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

Lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.
Recorded by ABBA.
