Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I've been alive forever
Left allemande then box the gnat
4 girls star by the left it's once around you go
Box the gnat and weave around the ring
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
Dosado then go left allemande and promenade
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around now
Meet the sides and make a right hand star
Heads star left inside once around you go
Around the corner do a dosado
Swing thru 2 by 2, the boys trade and swing
Left allemande then promenade the ring
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs, I write the songs


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Heads square thru 4 hands round now
Meet the corner dosado and then
Swing thru 2 by 2 and boys run right
Do a ferris wheel and spread, outsides in
All star thru, square thru 3/4 round
Swing the corner, promenade the town
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I Write The Songs
 
 

I've been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

My home lies deep within you
And I've got my own place in your soul
Now, when I look out through your eyes
I'm young again, even though I'm very old

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

Oh my music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
Music fills your heart
Well, that's a real fine place to start
It's from me, it's for you
It's from you, it's for me
It's a world wide symphony

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I am music, and I write the songs

Lyrics by Bruce Johnston.
Recorded by Barry Manilow.
