Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Did you ever lie and listen to the rainbow
Did you ever eat a homemade apple pie
Did you ever hold a child while he was sleeping
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Left allemande and weave around that ring go
Do a dosado and promenade you fly
Did you ever take the time to help a neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

And now those heads square thru in the middle
Count 4 hands you know
And with the sides swing thru I say
Now boys run, bend the line, go up and back in time
Slide thru, then a right & left thru that way
Ladies lead do a flutter wheel, go full around
And there's your corner, swing
Swing and then you promenade you fly
Did you ever squeeze her hand while you were dancing
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Don't Let The Good Life Pass You By
 
 

Did you ever lie and listen to the rain fall
Did you ever own a homemade apple pie
Did you ever watch a child while he was praying
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Did you ever hold a hand to stop its trembling
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky
Did you ever hold a woman while she's sleeping
Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Lyrics by Sharon Leigh Rucker.
