OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    A2, R-H lady progression

Allemande left, ladies star, gentlemen promenade
Allemande left, gentlemen star, ladies promenade
Allemande left, go forward two, go right and left
Turn back one do a wrong way grand
I found my April dreams in Portugal with you
Let's dosado then swing and promenade by two's
My head was in the clouds, my heart went crazy too
And madly I said, I love you


FIGURE   

Heads (sides) move into the middle, come back and square thru
And on the third hand let's touch 1/4 do
Girls turn back with a dosado go full around the floor
Centers pass thru and touch 1/4 more
The men turn thru, the girls turn back
Swing that corner maid
Allemande left new corner, come back and promenade
We discovered romance as we danced around the hall
As we danced to Portugal

April In Portugal Lyrics ID: 1706

I found my April dream in Portugal with you
When we discovered romance, like we never knew.
My head was in the clouds, My heart went crazy too,
And madly I said: "I love you."

Too soon I heard you say:
"This dream is for a day"
That's Porugal and love in April!
And when the showers fell,
Those tears I know so well,
They told me it was spring fooling me.

I found my April dream in Portugal with you
When we discovered romance, like I never knew.
Then morning brought the rain,
And now my dream is through
But still my heart says "I love you."

This sad reality, To know it couldn't be,
That's Portugal and love in April!
The music and the wine convinced me you were mine,
But it was just the spring fooling me.

I found my April dream in Portugal with you
When we discovered romance, like I never knew.
Then morning brought the rain,
And now my dream is through
But still my heart says "I love you."

Composed by Raul Ferrao.
Lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy.
Recorded by Perez Prado; Louis Armstrong; Vic Damone; many others.
