Handle With Care (The Travelling Wilburys) - STING 21305 (Tommy P Larsen)

 

(Opener): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE
Been beat up and battered 'round

Been sent up, and I've been shot down
You're the best thing that I've ever found

Handle me with care

ALLEMANDE LEFT and WEAVE

Reputations changeable - Situations tolerable
Baby, you're adorable - Handle me with care

 

 

(Figure 1): HEADS you PROMENADE HALFWAY around come down SQUARE THRU four hands around

All the way do the RIGHT AND LEFT THRU HALF SASHAY BOX THE GNAT SLIDE THRU

SQUARE THRU TWO hands you TRADE BY and SWING the corner PROMENADE her home

Baby, you're adorable - Handle me with care

 

(Figure 2): HEADS LEFT SQUARE THRU FOUR HANDS with the SIDES make a LEFT HAND STAR

The HEADS STAR RIGHT all the way LEFT SWING THRU

GIRLS CROSS RUN and the BOYS RUN RIGHT CALIFORNIA TWIRL PROMENADE her home

Overexposed, commercialised - Handle me with care

 

 

(Middle Break and Closer): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

I'm so tired of being lonely

I still have some love to give

Won't you show me that you really care

ALLEMANDE LEFT and WEAVE

Everybody's, got somebody, to lean on

Put your body, next to mine, and dream on

 

 

(Tag): SIDES FACE GRAND SQUARE

I've been uptight and made a mess

But I'll clean it up myself, I guess
Oh, the sweet smell of success

Handle me with care

 

 

ORIGINAL LYRICS:


Been beat up and battered 'round
Been sent up, and I've been shot down
You're the best thing that I've ever found
Handle me with care


Reputations changeable
Situations tolerable
But baby, you're adorable
Handle me with care

I'm so tired of being lonely
I still have some love to give
Won't you show me that you really care

Everybody's got somebody to lean on
Put your body next to mine, and dream on

I've been fobbed off, and I've been fooled
I've been robbed and ridiculed
In day care centres and night schools
Handle me with care


Been stuck in airports, terrorized
Sent to meetings, hypnotized
Overexposed, commercialised
Handle me with care


I've been uptight and made a mess
But I'll clean it up myself, I guess
Oh, the sweet smell of success
Handle me with care
