HANDJIVE HOW-TO


We go together

Chang chang-changitty-chang-sha-bop

That's the way it should be

Wah-oooh, yeah!

We'll always be like one, wa-wa-wa-waaah



When we go out at night

And stars are shinin' bright

Up in the skies above

Or at the Westlake dance

Where you can find romance

Maybe it might be love

BAY VIEW:


El Sol



El sol está en mi corazón hoy
The sun is in my heart today
Me gusta mucho la vida
I like life very much

Ohhh Tengo hermanos y tengo hermanas
Juntos somos fuerte
I have brothers and I have sisters
Together we are strong



Shooting Star
Note: This recording of Shooting Star has names of soloists who were singing those parts when I did it several years ago. Ignore their names and follow the notation about "SOLO 1", "SOLO 2", ETC.



Verse 1
Solo 1: Please won’t you catch a shooting star for me.
And take it with you on your way?
Solo 2: Though it seems we’ve just met, you’re the ones we won’t forget.
You’re in our hearts, you’re here to stay.

Chorus
And we were thinking maybe somewhere later down the road,
After all our stories have been told,
We’d sit and think of you, the dear friends we once knew
Shot through our lives like a shooting star.

Verse 2
Solo 3: Somewhere we know that a part of you will show
Within our eyes or in our smiles.
Solo 4: ‘cause we’ll never be apart, you’ll always be inside our hearts,
and we’ll know just when to let it go.

(Sing Chorus)

Verse 3
Solo 5: You are our friends, oh you’re the light of the shining stars,
You brighten each and every day.
Solo 6: You are so dear, ah, but soon you’ll be so far.
So why not shine your light today?

(Sing Chorus)
Repeat last line of Chorus
