Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Hey circle left on the merry go round, the merry go round of love
Round and round on the merry go round, finding a true love sure is tough

Do an allemande left your corner, run home do a dosado
Now boys star by the left once around you know
Hey turn your partner by the right and you go left allemande
Come on home & swing & whirl & promenade the land
Some people falling off, some are getting on, some are getting ready to jump
Here we go round the merry go round, the merry go round of love


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Why 1 & 3 (2 & 4) you square thru & you count 4 hands you know
When you see the corner girl, do a little dosado
Swing thru & now boys run to the right
Tag the line & when you're there, let's cloverleaf tonight
Oh girls square thru, go 3 hands around
Swing that corner lady, promenade her on the merry go round
Some people falling off, some are getting on, some are getting ready to jump
Here we go round the merry go round, the merry go round of love


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
I just got off that merry go round, my heart was starting to mend
The last ride I had was awfully bad, I swore I'd never do it again

Do an allemande left your corner, run home do a dosado
Now boys star by the left once around you know
Hey turn your partner by the right and you go left allemande
Come on home & swing & whirl & promenade the land
Then I met a little girl she gave me a whirl & I'm off for another ride
I guess I'll be riding the merry go round until the day I die


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
How long will I ride the merry go round, how long will it be this way
How many times must I go round till I find a girl who will stay

Do an allemande left your corner, run home do a dosado
Now boys star by the left once around you know
Hey turn your partner by the right and you go left allemande
Come on home & swing & whirl & promenade the land
Each time I think I've found a true love and my riding days are done
Along comes a man, takes her by the hand, and I'm back where I started from


TAG

Round and round on the merry go round
Back where I started from

Merry-Go-Round Of Love
 
 

Here we go a round the merry go round
The merry go round of love
Round and a round, the merry go round
Findin' true love sure is tough
Some people fallin off, some are getting on
And some are getting ready to jump
Here we go a round the merry go round
The merry go round of love

I just got off from the merry go round
And my heart was starting to mend
The last ride I had was awful bad
I swore I'd never get on again

Then I met a little girl, and she gave me a whirl
Now I'm off for an other round
I guess I'll be riding the merry go round
'Till the day I die

Here we go a round the merry go round
The merry go round of love
Round and a round, the merry go round
Findin' true love sure is tough
Some people fallin off, some are getting on
And some are getting ready to jump
Here we go a round the merry go round
The merry go round of love

How long will I ride the merry go round
How long will it be this way
How many times will it go 'round and 'round
Before I find a girl who'll stay

Every time I think about a true love
And my riding day's are done
A long comes a man who takes her by the hand
And I'm back where I've started from

Here we go a round the merry go round
The merry go round of love
Round and a round, the merry go round
Findin' true love sure is tough
Some people fallin off, some are getting on
And some are getting ready to jump
Here we go a round the merry go round
The merry go round of love

Here we go a round the merry go round
The merry go round of love

Lyrics by Robert Lee Floyd.
Recorded by Hank Snow.
