OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Doe - a deer, a female deer
Ray - a drop of golden sun
Me - a name I call myself
Far - a long, long way to run

Circle left

La - a note to follow sew

Promenade
Tea - a drink with jam and bread
Hey that will bring us back to doe


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway go round
Lead to the right and do a dosado
Swing thru go down the wave and spin the top
Recycle move it round and go
Square thru 4 hands around my friend
Swing your corner girl and promenade
Tea - a drink with jam and bread
Hey that will bring us back to doe


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
When you know
The notes to sing
You can sing
Most anything

Allemande and weave
So, do, la, fa, me, do, re

So, do, la, ti, do, re, do!

(No TAG: drag out the "bring us back to doe")

Do Re Mi
 
 

Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with A-B-C
When you sing you begin with Do-Re-Mi

Do-Re-Mi

Do-Re-Mi
The first three notes just happen to be
Do-Re-Mi

Do-Re-Mi

Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti
Oh, let's see if I can make it easier

Do, a deer, a female deer
Re, a drop of golden sun
Mi, a name I call myself
Fa, a long, long way to run
So, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow So
Ti, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do

Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti-Do, So-Do

Now children, Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-and-so on are natur'ly the tunes we use to build a song
Once you have these notes in your head
You can sing a million diff'rent tune by mixin' them up
Like this:
So, Do, La, Fa, Mi, Do, Re

Can you do that?
So, Do, La, Fa, Mi, Do, Re

So, Do, La, Ti, Do, Re, Do

So, Do, La, Ti, Do, Re, Do

Now let's put it all together

So, Do, La, Fa, Mi, Do, Re
So, Do, La, Ti, Do, Re, Do

Good!

But it doesn't mean anything

So we put in words-one word for ev'ry note, like this:

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything!
Together!

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything!

Do... a deer, a female deer
Re... a drop of golden sun
Mi... a name, I call myself
Fa... a long, long way to run

So... a needle pulling thread
La... a note to follow So
Ti... a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do

Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do
Do, Ti, La, So, Fa, Mi, Re
Do, Mi, Mi
Mi, So, So
Re, Fa, Fa
La, Ti, Ti

Do, Mi-Mi
Mi, So-So
Re, Fa-Fa
La, Ti-Ti

When (Do, Mi-Mi)
You (Mi, So-So)
Know (Re, Fa-Fa)
The (La, Ti-Ti)
Notes (Do, Mi-Mi)
To (Mi, So-So)
Sing (Re, Fa-Fa)
(La, Ti-Ti)
You (La, Ti-Ti)
Can (Mi, So-So)
Sing (Re, Fa-Fa)
Most (La, Ti-Ti)
An-y-thing

Do, a deer, a female deer
Re, a drop of golden sun
Mi, a name, I call myself
Fa, a long, long way to run

So, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow So
Ti, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to

So... (So, Do)
Re... (La, Fa)
Mi... (Mi, Do)
Fa... (Re)
So... (So, Do)
La... (La, Fa)
Ti... (La-So, Fa, Mi-Re)
Ti Do...

Composed by Richard Rodgers.
