Pretend   (KDM 128)   Chris Froggatt(Nat King Cole) 1952


OPENER

Sides Face Grand Square

Pretend youíre happy when youíre blue

It isnít very hard to do

And you'll find happiness without an end
Whenever you pretend

Four Ladies Chain across you know
Chain her right Back and Promenade
The little things you haven't got
Could be a lot, if you pretend

FIGURE

Heads Square Thru four hands you go
Around your corner DoSaDo
Swing Thru, now the Boys Run

Bend the Line, Right and Left Thru

Flutter Wheel across you go

Slide Thru, your corner Swing, Promenade
The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend
So why don't you pretend?

MIDDLE BREAK

Circle Left

Remember anyone can dream
And nothing's bad as it may seem
Four Men Star Right one time

Left Allemande and Weave that Ring

Pretend youíre happy when your blue

Swing and Promenade her too

The little things you haven't got
Could be a lot, if you pretend

CLOSER

Sides Face Grand Square

And if you sing this melody

Youíll be pretending just like me

The world is mine, it can be yours my friend

So why donít you pretend

Four Ladies Chain across you know
Chain her right Back and Promenade
The little things you haven't got
Could be a lot, if you pretend

TAG

Swing her,

The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend
So why don't you pretend?

ORIGINAL LYRICS

Pretend you're happy when you're blue
It isn't very hard to do
And you'll find happiness without an end
Whenever you pretend

 

Remember anyone can dream
And nothing's bad as it may seem
The little things you haven't got
Could be a lot if you pretend

 

You'll find a love you can share
One you can call all your own
Just close your eyes, she'll be there
You'll never be alone

 

And if you sing this melody
You'll be pretending just like me
The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend
So why don't you pretend?

 

And if you sing this melody
You'll be pretending just like me
The world is mine, it can be yours, my friend
So why don't you pretend?
