OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Allemande left with the corner lady, box the gnat at home
4 little ladies promenade inside the ring you roam
Turn partner by the right to a wrong way thar
The gents back up now in a left hand star
Throw in the clutch, put her in low, go twice around the ring
The second time you box the gnat, pull her by and then
Allemande left, come back you promenade go round the track
In the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun?


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

4 little ladies chain across and couples 1 & 3
Go right & left thru across the ring and turn her there for me
Star thru and pass thru, then dosado
Make an ocean wave there, rock to and fro
Eight chain 5, count to 5, ain't we got fun?
Allemande left new corner, come back promenade that one
There's nothing surer, the rich get rich and the poor get poorer
Swing the lady
In the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun?

Ain't We Got Fun?
 
 

Every morning
Every evening
Ain't we got fun
Not much money
Oh, but honey
Ain't we got fun
The rent's unpaid, dear
We haven't a bus
But smiles were made, dear
For people like us

In the winter
In the summer
Don't we have fun
Times are bum and getting bummer
Still we have fun
There's nothing surer
The rich get rich and the poor get children
In the meantime
In between time
Ain't we got fun

Every morning, every evening
Don't we got fun
Twins and cares, dear
Come in pairs, dear
Don't we have fun
We've only started
As mommer and pop
Are we downhearted
I'll say that we're not
Landlords mad and getting madder
Ain't we got fun
Times are bad and getting badder
Still we have fun
There's nothing surer
The rich get rich and the poor get laid off
In the meantime
In between time
Ain't we got fun

Night or day-time
It's all play-time
Ain't we got fun
Hot or cold days
Any old days
Ain't we got fun
If wifie wishes
To go to a play
Don't wash the dishes
Just throw them away
Street car seats are awful narrow
Ain't we got fun
They won't smash up our Pierce Arrow
We ain't got none
They've cut my wages
Income tax will be so much smaller
When I'm paid off
I'll be laid off
Ain't we got fun

Lyrics by Richard A. Whiting, Raymond Egan and Gus Kahn.
Recorded by Bob Hope; Peggy Lee.
