Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain is what you do, 3/4 round is what you do
Chain the ladies once again, straight across the ring, my friend
Now join hands and make a big ring, circle to the left and hear me sing
Ladies center men sashay, circle to the left in the same old way
Allemande left with your left hand, the partner right in a right & left grand
In and out around you go, do a dosado and promeno
Well you ain't got time to be unhappy,
ain't got time to be unhappy
You've just got time to swing your pappy,
but you ain't got time to be unhappy


FIGURE   

Head couples square thru 4 hands around you do
Dosado that corner, one time around will do
Swing thru without a stop, let's spin the top
Then do the right & left thru, and the same two ladies turn thru
Allemande with your left hand, dosado around your own
Take the corner, promenade, go walking with the pretty little maid
Well you ain't got time to be unhappy,
ain't got time to be unhappy
You've just got time to swing your pappy,
but you ain't got time to be unhappy


TAG

Now thank your maw and thank your pappy

Ain't Got Time To Be Unhappy Lyrics ID: 2648

The rich man's eatin' with a golden spoon
The poor man's worried 'bout him getting to the moon
They say World War III is a-coming any day
But me, I couldn't care less either way

I ain't got time to be unhappy
I ain't got time to be unhappy
Loving you makes me wanna slap my pappy
And I ain't got time to be unhappy

The world keeps changing every day
The things in the heart stay the same old way
Rockets to the moon and filter cigarettes
Ain't had no effect on my life as yet

I ain't got time to be unhappy
I ain't got time to be unhappy
Loving you makes me wanna slap my pappy
And I ain't got time to be unhappy

So take my advice if you ever get blue
Find a little girl that just digs you
Live on love let the world be
Then you can sing my little song with me

I ain't got time to be unhappy
I ain't got time to be unhappy
Loving you makes me wanna slap my pappy
And I ain't got time to be unhappy

I ain't got time to be unhappy
I ain't got time to be unhappy
Loving you makes me wanna slap my pappy
And I ain't got time to be unhappy

Lyrics by Glenn Sutton.
Recorded by Bob Luman.
