OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain 3/4 round you go
Join up hands and circle left around the ring you know
Do an allemande left in the alamo style, right to your honey and balance
Swing thru to an allemande thar, the boys back in you do
Slip the clutch, left allemande, come do a dosado
Left allemande the old left hand, promenade that ring
Hey, it's all right now, I learned my lesson well
You can't please everyone so you got to please yourself


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 you square thru 4 hands around that land
When you meet your corner lady fair, you swing thru and then
Those boys run to the right, let's ferris wheel I say
In the middle do a right & left thru, why don't you roll away
Why don't you turn thru and then, your corner lady swing
Left allemande and then you promenade that ring
Hey, it's all right now, I learned my lesson well
You can't please everyone so you got to please yourself

Garden Party
 
 

I went to a garden party
To reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories
And play our old songs again

When I got to the garden party
They all knew my name
But no one recognized me
I didn't look the same

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself

People came from miles around
Everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus
There was magic in the air

And over in the corner
Much to my surprise
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes
Wearing his disguise

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself

I played them all the old songs
I thought that's why they came
No one heard the music
We didn't look the same

I said hello to Mary Lou
She belongs to me
When I sang a song about a Honky-Tonk
It was time to leave

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself

Someone opened up a closet door
And out stepped Johnny B. Goode
Playing guitar like a ringing a bell
And lookin' like he should

If you gotta play at garden parties
I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang
I'd rather drive a truck

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, you can't please everyone
So you got to please yourself

Lyrics by Ricky Nelson.
