Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande that corner, dosado your own
Join your hands, circle left around you roam
Left allemande and then you weave the ring
Weave in and out around until you meet agagin
You turn her by the right, girls promenade inside
One time around you come on home, swing and then
You promenade her go walkin' round the room
And be a dear world and get well soon


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

The head 2 couples square thru 4 hands around you go
Now with the corner dosado around you know
Swing thru, boys trade and then
Box the gnat, change hands, left allemande
Dosado your honey, that corner lady swing
Swing that lady, promenade the ring
*We'll bring you roses and get you back in tune
So be a dear world and get well soon

So be a dear world and get well soon

Dear World
 
 

Someone has wounded you, dear world,
Someone has poisoned you, dear world.
And those who love you defiantly insist
That you get off the critical list.
So make your recovery quick, world
We're sick of having a sick world.
We want you dancing tomorrow afternoon,
So, be a dear world, and get well soon!

Please take your medicine, dear world,
Please make the fever break, dear world
Your vim and vigor are very sorely missed
Help us declare you "patient dismissed"
And stand on your crutches with pride, world
You've gotta save your own hide, world
We're not quite ready to trade you for the moon
So be a dear world, and get well soon!

Someone has beaten you, dear world
Someone has blinded you, dear world
Make sure your heartbeat is very finely tuned
Take off the bandage, heal every wound
And let's show the whole human race, world
You're not a terminal case, world
We're not quite ready to trade you for the moon
So be a dear world, and get well soon!

They won't defeat you, world
This we assure you, world
If we can treat you, world
Then we can cure you, world

Someone has wounded you, dear world,
Someone has poisoned you, dear world.
And those who love you defiantly insist
That you get off the critical list.
And let's show the whole human race, world
You're not a terminal case, world
We're not quite ready to trade you for the moon
So be a dear world,
Keep your fever down, dear world,
Keep your courage up, dear world.
And get well soon!

Lyrics by Jerry Herman.
Recorded by Ray Conniff.
