OPENER/BREAK/CLOSER

Sides Face Grand Square

The problem is all inside your head
She said to me
The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To leave your lover

Allemande and weave the ring

You Just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan

Swing and Promenade

Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free

 

 

FIGURE:

Heads (Sides) Promenade Halfway

Down the middle and Square Thru 4

Double Swing Thru Balance

All 8 Circulate

Swing your corner Promenade

Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free

The problem is all inside your head
She said to me
The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To leave your lover

She said it's really not my habit
To intrude
Furthermore, I hope my meaning
Won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself
At the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways
To leave your lover
Fifty ways to leave your lover

[CHORUS:]
You Just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free

She said it grieves me so
To see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do
To make you smile again
I said I appreciate that
And would you please explain
About the fifty ways

She said why don't we both
Just sleep on it tonight
And I believe in the morning
You'll begin to see the light
And then she kissed me
And I realized she probably was right
There must be fifty ways
To leave your lover
Fifty ways to leave your lover
