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 Lyrics ID: 634

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.

Chorus

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.

Chorus

I am music, and I write the songs.

Lyrics by Bruce Johnston.
Recorded by Barry Manilow.
