Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Did you ever lie and listen to the rain fall?
Did you ever own a home-made apple pie?

Left allemande, then turn the partner right
Left allemande then weave the ring
Man was made for loving not for buying
Dosado around then promenade
Look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around now
Face the sides make a right hand star
Go once around, heads star by the left
Pick up that corner arm around
Back out, circle round the ring now
Swing the nearest girl, promenade
Look my friend, there's happiness in living
Just don't let the good life pass you by


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Did you ever hold a woman while she's sleeping?
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry?

*Did you ever hold a hand to stop the trembling?
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky?

Don't Let The Good Life Pass You By Lyrics ID: 3016

Did you ever lie and listen to the rain fall
Did you ever own a homemade apple pie
Did you ever watch a child while he was praying
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Did you ever hold a hand to stop its trembling
Did you ever watch the sun desert the sky
Did you ever hold a woman while she's sleeping
Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Man was made for loving not for buying
Gold can't give the things we really need
Just look my friend, there's happiness in living
Somewhere between broke and being free

Did you ever see the funny side of losin'
Did you ever sit right down and have a cry
Did you ever take the time to help your neighbor
Just don't let the good life pass you by

Friend, don't let the good life pass you by

Lyrics by Sharon Leigh Rucker.
