OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Circle left
They say he's so wild and so free
Never fall for a lady like me

Left allemande, turn partner right
Men star left one time tonight
Curlique and then, you go left allemande
Swing your own and promenade that land
*With him in my days and him in my nights
Makin' up love out of pure fantasy


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*But I'm kinda caught in the web
That man's really gone to my head


*He says love's a trick of the night
And it's all done with mirrors and lights


FIGURE    C4, no progression

Heads square thru four hands and then
With the sides make a right hand star my friend
Heads star left inside, once around you go
To the same two curlique you know
Follow your neighbor and then
Go left allemande, dosado, swing corner, promenade
*With him in my days and him in my nights
Makin' up love out of pure fantasy

Prisoner Of Hope
 
 

My friends say she's sophisticated and free
Never fall for an outlaw like me
Too high and refined, I'm just wastin' my time
Forget her

But I'm kind of caught in the web
The lady has gone to my head
I no longer cope, I'm a prisoner of hope
Since I met her

I'm a prisoner of hope, just trying to win
The smile in her eyes, the touch of her skin
If she would just count me as one of her friends
Somehow I know where the friendship would end

With her in my arms and her by my side
With her in my days and her in my nights
Making up love out of pure fantasy
Prisoners of hope never want to be free.

Yesterday I caught her in a glance
More than a coincidence
But she turned away as if to say
"I'm above it"

She says that love is a trick of the night
And it's all done with mirrors and lights
But when I act like a fool like some kid back in school
She loves it

I'm a prisoner of hope, just trying to win
The smile in her eyes, the touch of her skin
If she would just count me as one of her friends
Somehow I know where the friendship would end

With her in my arms and her by my side
With her in my days and her in my nights
Making up love out of pure fantasy
Prisoners of hope never want to be free.

I'm a prisoner of hope, just trying to win
The smile in her eyes, the touch of her skin
If she would just count me as one of her friends
Somehow I know where the friendship would end

Lyrics by Metcalf Whipple.
Recorded by Johnny Lee.
