OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join 16 hands and circle left around the ring you go
All the way around 'til you get back home again
Left allemande your corner, dosado your own
Four men star left a full turn you go
Turn partner by the right, your corner allemande
Get back home and swing, then promenade around the land
Square dancing's fun for everyone
And the best things in life are free


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Four little ladies chain 3/4 round the ring
Turn 'em there, then couples 1 & 3 square thru
4 hands around 'til you meet your corner girl
Dosado full around, then do a curlique
Follow your neighbor, then go left allemande
Come on back and swing, promenade go hand in hand
The sun (moon, stars, love) belongs to everyone
Because the best things in life are free


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)    Plus

Walk all around your corner, turn partner by the left
Head ladies center teacup chain, side ladies to the right
Head girls star left once and a quarter, side ladies right
Head girls star left once and a quarter, side ladies right
Head ladies chain 3/4, sides go right again
Turn your girl, roll promenade, then everybody sing
The world belongs to everyone
Because 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

Composed by Ray Henderson.
Lyrics by B.G. DeSylva and Lew Brown.
Recorded by Hank Mobley; The Ink Spots; many more.
