Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
*Well did you ever hear the story of Belinda Onlyque
She was courted by the devil and she don't know what to do

Left allemande that corner girl and turn your partner right
Go back and allemande left your corner and weave the ring tonight
Well he came a courtin' every evening, a-ha!
With a ho double hoop shaw riggle laba dope and the
Doodle and the daddle and the puff of my smoke
And the heaping and the huffing and the chicken and the choking
And the pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well now the head two couples promenade, go half around that floor
The side couples square thru and I think he said four
It's all the way around the ring and then go right & left thru
Do an eight chain six and cross the big wide wicked world
Oh when that devil comes a courtin', a-ha
With number seven swing and sway, you promenade go 'round that way
Get her back, get her back home, I say
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
So the devil took Belinda and he claimed her with a kiss
And no one's ever seen her from that fatal day to this

Left allemande that corner girl and turn your partner right
Go back and allemande left your corner and weave the ring tonight
He won't come a-courtin' in the evening, a-ha
With a ho double hoop shaw riggle laba dope and the
Doodle and the daddle and the puff of my smoke
And the heaping and the huffing and the chicken and the choking

And the pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day


TAG

In the middle of the day, a-ha!

It was better that than being an old maid all her life

Pickle Up A Doodle Lyrics ID: 2078

With a ho double clip shaw, riggle up a doke
And a doodle and a daddle and a puff of my smoke
And a hickin' and a hawkin' and a chicken and a chalkin'
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day

Did you ever hear the story
Of Belinda O. McHugh?
She was courted by the Devil
And she didn't know what to do
He came a courtin' ev'ry evenin'

With a ho double clip shaw, riggle up a doke
And a doodle and a daddle and a puff of my smoke
And a hickin' and a hawkin' and a chicken and a chalkin'
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day

So Belinda got to thinkin'
She would be the Devil's wife
It was better far than bein'
Just an old maid all her life
He came a courtin' ev'ry evenin'

With a ho double clip shaw, riggle up a doke
And a doodle and a daddle and a puff of my smoke
And a hickin' and a hawkin' and a chicken and a chalkin'
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day

So Belinda told the Devil
"Sir, if I should marry you
Would you treat me like the devil
Or like better husbands do?"
He came a courtin' that evenin'

With a ho double clip shaw, riggle up a doke
And a doodle and a daddle and a puff of my smoke
And a hickin' and a hawkin' and a chicken and a chalkin'
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day

So the Devil told Belinda
"Now, I'll fetch a load of bricks
And I'll build for you a mansion
Right upon that River Styx"
When he came courtin' that evenin'

With a ho double clip shaw, riggle up a doke
And a doodle and a daddle and a puff of my smoke
And a hickin' and a hawkin' and a chicken and a chalkin'
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day

So the Devil took Belinda
And he claimed her with a kiss
And no one has ever seen her
From that fatal day to this
He came a courtin' in the evenin'

With a ho double clip shaw, riggle up a doke
And a doodle and a daddle and a puff of my smoke
And a hickin' and a hawkin' and a chicken and a chalkin'
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day

Now they say that she must still
Be livin' as the Devil's wife
For he spends his time upon this world
Away from married strife
But he won't come a courtin' in the evenin'

With a ho double clip shaw, riggle up a doke
And a doodle and a daddle and a puff of my smoke
And a hickin' and a hawkin' and a chicken and a chalkin'
And a pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day

Pickle up a doodle in the middle of the day
