OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*It was in the spring, one sunny day
Oh she left me and she run away

Left allemande the corner lady, come back a dosado
Boys star by the left inside you go
You turn the partner by the right & you go left allemande
Swing your lady there, you're gonna promenade that land
And now she's gone and I don't worry
I'm sittin' on top of the world


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Those heads (sides) square thru in the middle & you count 'em 4 you go
Run to the corner lady and you're gonna do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, the boys run to the right
Tag the line and then you cloverleaf
Girls come in and square thru 3/4 down the line
Swing the corner lady there, you're gonna promenade so fine
And now she's gone and I don't worry
I'm sittin' on top of the world


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

*A nickel is a nickel and a dime is a dime
I thought she loved me, thought she was mine

I'm Sitting On Top Of The World
 
 

I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along, just rolling along.
I'm quitting the blues of the world,
Just singing a song, just singing a song.

Glory, hallelujah, I just phoned the parson,
"Hey, Par, get ready to call!"
Just like Humpty Dumpty,
I'm ready to fall.

I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along, just rolling along.
I'm quitting the blues of the world,
Just singing a song, just singing a song

Composed by Ray Henderson.
Lyrics by Sam Lewis and Joseph Young.
Recorded by Les Paul and Mary Ford (1953).
