Cue Sheet


Do an allemande left and allemande thar
Go right & left and star
The gents back up and you make a right hand star
Shoot that star full around, your partner box the gnat
The gents star left, go once around like that
Turn your partner right, allemande left that corner girl
Come on back and swing and promenade that ring
Square dancing's fun for everyone
The best things in life are free

FIGURE    C1, corner progression

The 4 ladies chain, you turn 'em left and then
1 & 3 go right & left thru, turn that girl again (backaway)
The sides cross trail thru, go round the outside two
You make a line of 4, go up and back with you
Star thru, then substitute, the center 4 square thru 3
3/4 round and swing the corner, and promenade her too
The sun 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

Lyrics by B.G. DeSylva, Lew Brown, and Ray Henderson.
