Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well all 4 ladies chain I say, turn the girl and rollaway
Swing a brand new girl that comes your way
Allemande left, go allemande thar, go forward 2 & make the star
Boys swing in & there you are, let's slip the clutch, left allemande
A grand old right & left again, hand over hand & promenade
And when you're sad and blue and kinda lonely too
A smile will go a long, long way


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Now 1st & 3rd (2nd & 4th) pass thru, do a partner trade
Reverse the flutter wheel & when you do, sweep 1/4
A double pass thru & now track 2, girls trade, swing thru
All 8 will circulate, swing & whirl a brand new date
Allemande come back and promenade
Don't sit around and frown, don't let it get you down
A smile will go a long, long way

A Smile Will Go A Long Long Way
 
 

Smiling faces always find a welcome
That's why everyone should leave to smile
Remember after all, your trouble may be small
Here's a little thought that's worth your while

When you're blue and kinda lonely too
You'll find a smile will go a long, long way
Though you're down, don't sit around and frown
A little smile will go a long, long way
Never grieve, just try and make believe
The sky is blue although you know it's grey
Don't you pine, it's just a waste of time
You'll find a smile will go a long, long way

Once I used to think my case was hopeless
Never wore a smile the live-long day
But since I learned to smile, my life has been worthwhile
That is just the reason why I say

When you're blue and kinda lonely too
You'll find a smile will go a long, long way
Though you're down, don't sit around and frown
A little smile will go a long, long way
Never grieve, just try and make believe
The sky is blue although you know it's grey
Don't you pine, it's just a waste of time
You'll find a smile will go a long, long way

Lyrics by Benny Davis and Harry Akst.
Recorded by Irving Kaufman; The Andrews Sisters; many others.
