Allemande your corner girl, turn your partner right
Men star left 3/4 to the corner girl
Box the gnat, change hands, go left allemande
With your own, dosado and girls promenade inside
All the way round, go right back home and swing
Swing your partner round and then you promenade
Love belongs to everyone
The best things in life are free

FIGURE    C1, corner progression

Head couples pass thru, separate round one
All 8 move it up then come on back, star thru
Substitute, centers pass thru and dosado
All the way around, eight chain 4 hands
4 hands across, then with number 5 you swing
Swing that pretty girl and then you promenade the ring
Love belongs to everyone
The best things in life are free

The Best Things In Life Are Free

The moon belongs to everyone,
The best things in life are free.
The stars belong to everyone,
They gleam there for you and me.
The flowers in spring, the robins that sing,
The moonbeams that shine, they're yours, they're mine.
And love can come to everyone,
The best things in life are free.

The flowers in spring
The robins that sing
The sun beams that shine
They're yours, they're mine
And love can come to anyone
Because the best things in life are free

Composed by Ray Henderson.
Lyrics by B.G. DeSylva and Lew Brown.
Recorded by Hank Mobley; The Ink Spots; many more.
