FIGURE    C4, corner progression

4 little ladies chain you turn 'em and then
Side 2 ladies chain back again
Heads go forward up and back, star thru in time
Pass thru and circle to a line
Without a stop do a dosado and make an ocean wave
Balance and swing star thru
Center two square thru 3 hands around
Centers in and cast off 3/4 around
Then you can star thru and do a double pass thru
The first two left, the next two right
Right & left thru the two in sight
Cross trail thru to the corner girl, left allemande
Walk right by your own and then swing, promenade
All the way around to the Cabaret, my friend
Come to the Cabaret

Cabaret Lyrics ID: 103

What good is sittin' alone in your room
Come hear the music play,
Life is a cabaret old chum
Come to the cabaret.
Put down that knittin', the book and the broom
Time for a holiday,
Life is a cabaret old chum
Come to the cabaret.

Come taste the wine, come hear that band
Come blow your horn, start celebratin'
Right this way, your table's waitin'
No use permittin' some prophet of doom
Wipe every smile away,
Life is a cabaret old chum
So come to the cabaret!

I used to have this girl friend known as Elsie
With whom I shared four sordid rooms in Chelsea
She wasn't what you'd call a blushing flower
As a matter of fact she rented by the hour
The day she died the neighbors came to snicker
Well, that's what comes of too much pills and liquor
But when I saw her laid down like a queen
She was the happiest corpse I'd ever seen
I think of Elsie to this very day,
I remember how she'd turn to me and say:

"What good is sittin' alone in your room
Come hear the music play,
Life is a cabaret old chum
Come to the cabaret"
And as for me, ha!
And as for me,
I made my mind up back in Chelsea
When I goooooooooooooooo,
I'm going like Elsie

Start by admitting from cradle to tomb
There isn't that long a stay
Life is a Cabaret, old chum
It's only a Cabaret old chum
Life is a Cabaret, old chum
And I love a Cabaret!

Composed by John Kander.
