OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade inside round then,
All star thru then we'll all promenade
Take this lady, keep on moving
Boy roll back, left allemande and gonna weave that ring
*Old man trouble, I don't mind him
Swing your honey, promenade the ring
**I got music, I got rhythm
I got my girl, who could ask for anything more

**I got daisies, I got sweet dreams


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway around there
Walk in square thru four hands you go
Four hands around then dosado now
When you're done all square thru 3/4, well 3/4 round
Trade by, swing
Swing the corner lady then you promenade the ring, well
**I got sweet dreams, I got star lights
I got my girl, who could ask for anything more

Then you walk around your corner lady, see-saw and then
Well, left allemande and bow real low

I Got Rhythm
 
 

In this fast and troubled world
We sometimes lose our way
But I am never lost
I feel this way because

I got rhythm, I got music
I got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?
I've got good times, no more bad times
I've got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?

Old man trouble (old man trouble)
I don't mind him (I don't mind him)
You won't find him 'round my door
I've got starlight (I've got starlight)
I've got sweet dreams (I've got sweet dreams)
I've got my girl
Who could ask for, who could ask for more?

Old man trouble (old man trouble)
I don't mind him (I don't mind him)
You won't find, you're never gonna find him 'round my door
Oh, I've got rhythm (hey! I've got rhythm)
I've got music (hey! I got music)
I got my girl
Who could ask for anything more?

In this fast and troubled world

I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
I've got rhythm, I've got rhythm
{fade}

Verse:
Days can be sunny,
With never a sigh;
Don't need what money
Can buy.

Birds in the tree sing
Their dayful of song.
Why shouldn't we sing
Along?

I'm chipper all the day,
Happy with my lot.
How do I get that way?
Look at what I've got:

Refrain:
I got rhythm,
I got music,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more?

I got daisies,
In green pastures,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more?

Old Man Trouble,
I don't mind him -
You won't find him
'Round my door.

I got starlight,
I got sweet dreams,
I got my man -
Who could ask for anything more -
Who could ask for anything more?

Composed by George Gershwin.
Lyrics by Ira Gershwin.
