Cue Sheet


Now you allemande your corner, dosado your partner
The men star left go once around
Put your arm around your partner, now star promenade her
For once in my life I'll be strong
Now men back out a full turn, 4 ladies chain across
Turn and chain that lady home and then
Why you roll promenade once my friend
We'll start this ole song once again

FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Well those 4 ladies chain, gonna turn the pretty lady
Those sides square thru about 4 times
You swing thru and then, the boys run to the right
Why couples circulate, move up and then, wheel & deal
Now pass thru, then trade by, that corner lady swing
Swing the corner lady, well promenade that ring
For once in my life I have someone who really needs me


Oh, walk around your corner, come back gonna swing for
Swing for me

For Once In My Life

For once in my life
I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once unafraid
I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know I'll be strong

For once I can touch
What my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Could make my dreams come true

For once in my life
I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it's hurt me before, oh
For once I've got someone
I know won't desert me
'Cause I'm not alone anymore

For once I can say
This is mine, you can't take it
As long as I've got love I know I can make it
For once in my life
I've got someone who needs me

Lyrics by Ron Miller and Orlando Murden.
Recorded by Connie Haines; The Temptations; Stevie Wonder; many others.
