OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Dosado round the corner lady, see saw your taw
Join hands, circle left, go round the ring with ma
Face the corner, star thru, circle left you do
4 ladies chain across, turn that little Sue
Chain 'em back across the land, turn 'em on around and then
Whirlaway go right & left grand, until you meet again
Promenade that pretty thing, take a walk go round the ring
In the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun


FIGURE   

1 & 3 you separate go halfway round that square
Star thru, then roll away, go up and back from there
Star thru, go right & left thru, turn the girl and then
Dive thru, square thru 3/4 round my friend
Allemande the corner, dosado your own
Swing the corner lady round, promenade her home
Promenade that pretty little thing, take a walk go round the ring
In the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun

Ain't We Got Fun?
 
 

Every morning
Every evening
Ain't we got fun
Not much money
Oh, but honey
Ain't we got fun
The rent's unpaid, dear
We haven't a bus
But smiles were made, dear
For people like us

In the winter
In the summer
Don't we have fun
Times are bum and getting bummer
Still we have fun
There's nothing surer
The rich get rich and the poor get children
In the meantime
In between time
Ain't we got fun

Every morning, every evening
Don't we got fun
Twins and cares, dear
Come in pairs, dear
Don't we have fun
We've only started
As mommer and pop
Are we downhearted
I'll say that we're not
Landlords mad and getting madder
Ain't we got fun
Times are bad and getting badder
Still we have fun
There's nothing surer
The rich get rich and the poor get laid off
In the meantime
In between time
Ain't we got fun

Night or day-time
It's all play-time
Ain't we got fun
Hot or cold days
Any old days
Ain't we got fun
If wifie wishes
To go to a play
Don't wash the dishes
Just throw them away
Street car seats are awful narrow
Ain't we got fun
They won't smash up our Pierce Arrow
We ain't got none
They've cut my wages
Income tax will be so much smaller
When I'm paid off
I'll be laid off
Ain't we got fun

Lyrics by Richard A. Whiting, Raymond Egan and Gus Kahn.
Recorded by Bob Hope; Peggy Lee.
 

Comments

January 1964.
 
Just wanted to thank you for making the lyrics available. Little pieces of "Ain't
we got Fun?" have resided in my internal musak for decades - so I am
delighted to have the complete lyrics to refer to when I sing to myself. Hooray
for Wikipedia and MacGregor records. JKG 13Oct.007
