Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
That's life, that's what all the people say
You're riding high in April, shot down in May

Left allemande, dosado
Left allemande and weave it you know
That's life, and it ain't gonna change
Swing your girl and promenade the ring
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I get back on top, back on top in June


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

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around
Walk in the square thru 4 hands around
Go all the way, do the right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, then swing thru
You spin the top, slide thru
Swing that girl, promenade you do
*If I didn't think life was worth a try
I'd jump right on a big bird and fly


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
That's life, and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks just stomping on a dream

Left allemande, dosado
Left allemande, and weave it you roam
That's life, and it ain't always fair
Swing your partner, promenade the ring
But I don't let it get me down
'cause this fine ol' world keeps spinning around


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
That's life, and I can't deny it
I thought of quitting, but my heart just won't buy it

Left allemande, dosado
Left allemande and weave around you roam
That's life, and it ain't gonna change
Swing your own and promenade the ring
But if there ain't nothing shakin' by July
I'm gonna roll myself up in a great big ball and die


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's Life Lyrics ID: 1243

That's life (that's life), that's what all the people say
You're ridin' high in April, shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top, back on top in June

I said that's life (that's life), and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down
'cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), I tell you I can't deny it
I thought of quitting, baby, but my heart just ain't gonna buy it
And if I didn't think it was worth one single try
I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself layin' flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), that's life and I can't deny it
Many times I thought of cuttin' out but my heart won't buy it
But if there's nothin' shakin' come this here July
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball a-and die

My, my!

Lyrics by Kelly Gordon and Dean Kay.
Recorded by Frank Sinatra.
