Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Join up hands and make that ring, circle left like everything
Allemande left on the corner girl, do a dosado
All 4 men star by the left, go walking round that big old set
Turn thru, left allemande, then you weave that ring
Cause he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
Promenade that gal in the sky hopes
A problem's like a toy balloon, they'll be burstin' soon
They're just bound to go pop

Swing
There goes another problem "kerplop"


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head 2 couples promenade halfway round there with your maid
Down the middle do a dosado, make an ocean wave
Swing thru, go 2 by 2, box the gnat when you get through
Slide thru, pass thru, then you circle up 4
You're gonna make a little line, go up to the middle and back
Star thru, square thru 3/4 round the track
You're gonna swing the corner girl, promenade the world
Take the lady right home
There goes another problem "kerplop"

High Hopes
 
 

Next time your found, with your chin on the ground
There a lot to be learned, so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can't
Move a rubber tree plant

But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
He's got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your gettin' low
'stead of lettin' go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call, and your back's to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin' that dam

'Cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time your feelin' bad
'stead of feelin' sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

All problems just a toy balloon
They'll be bursted soon
They're just bound to go pop
Oops there goes another problem kerplop

Lyrics by Sammy Kahn and James Van Heusen.
Recorded by Frank Sinatra; Doris Day; Connie Francis; others.
