OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'm no doctor, that's for sure
Or a brilliant scientist on the verge of a cure
Michelangelo's got nothing to fear
But my vision's just as clear

Allemande and weave
I got two kids, two jobs
And a wife who's love I know is steady and strong
We're building our future, one day at a time
With a few extra nickels and dimes


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you're gonna promenade 'em halfway around that ring
Walk in and square thru go four hands around
Go all the way, a right & left thru
Veer left and then ferris wheel into the middle and then
Square thru go 3, 2, 1 and swing
Swing your girl and then you all promenade
We're building our future, one day at a time
With a few extra nickels and dimes

This is my life, I'm proud of my life

My Life's Work
 
 

I got two kids, two jobs
And a wife whose love I know is steady and strong
And this is my life's work

I'm no doctor, that's for sure
Or a brilliant scientist on the verge of a cure
And Michelangelo's nothing to fear
But my vision's just as clear

I won't be bronzed in the hall of fame
Or known for the style that changed the course of the game
I ain't no Hollywood star riding off with the girl
But I'm gonna leave my mark on this world

Cause I got two kids, two jobs
And wife whose love I know is steady and strong
And we're building our future one day at a time
With a few extra nickels and dimes
Though it might not seem like much next to the greats of this earth
But this is my life's work

Now I won't change the world with something I invent
And I got no designs on being president
My words won't be confused with William Shakespeare
But I mean what I say and I know why I'm here

Cause I got two kids, two jobs
And a wife whose love I know is steady and strong
And we're building our future one day at time
With a few extra nickels and dimes
It might not seem like much next the greats of this earth
This is my life's work
Yeah, this is my life

As time goes by I realize how much life means to me
No fortune nor fame, but just the same
I got everything I need

Yeah, I got two kids, two jobs
And a wife whose love I know is steady and strong
And we're building our future one day at a time
With a few extra nickels and dimes
It might not seem like much next to the greats of this earth
But this is my life, I'm proud of my life
Yeah, this is my life's work

Lyrics by Jeffrey Steele and Chris Farren.
Recorded by Boy Howdy.
