Reminiscing   (KDM 111)   Chris Froggatt (Little River Band) 1978

OPENER

Circle Left

Friday night, it was late, I was walking you home

We got down to the gate and I was dreaming of the night

Four Men Star Right

Left Allemande and Weave the Ring

I want to build my world around you

It ended all too soon (Swing, Promenade)

I wanna make you understand

Iím talking about a lifetime plan

FIGURE

Heads Promenade go Halfway round the ring

Walk in, Square Thru four

Meet those two, Right & Left Thru, turn the girl

Turn the girl, Veer Left and Ferris Wheel

Centres Right & Left Thru

Same two Veer Left, Veer Right

Your corner Swing and Promenade

On the way back home

I promised you'd never be alone

MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER

Sides Face, Grand Square

Hurry, don't be late, I can't hardly wait

I said to myself, when we're old

We'll go dancing in the dark

Walking through the park and reminiscing

4 Ladies Chain across, turn the girl and then

You Chain them Back home and Promenade

We'll go dancing in the dark, walking through the park

And reminiscing

TAG

Swing your girl

ORIGINAL LYRICS

Friday night it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate, I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right?
How to tell you girl, I want to build my world around you
Wanna tell you that it's true
I wanna make you understand I'm talking about a lifetime plan

 

Well that's the way it began, we were hand-in-hand
Glen Miller's band was better than before
We yelled and screamed for more
And those Porter's tunes made us dance across the room
It ended all too soon
On the way back home I promised you'd never be alone

Hurry, don't be late
I can't hardly wait
I said to myself when we're old
We'll go dancing in the dark, walking through the park
And reminiscing

 

Friday night it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate, I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right?
Now as the years roll on, each time we hear our favorite song
The memories come along
Older times we're missing, spending the hours reminiscing

Hurry, don't be late
I can't hardly wait
I said to myself when we're old
We'll go dancing in the dark, walking through the park
And reminiscing
