Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well, the four little ladies chain, go across that old ring
Well, you turn and chain 'em back
Join hands, make a ring, circle left you can go
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
Well, in and out until you meet your girl
And you will all promenade
Oh, lady be good... to me


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Well, the head (side) two couples promenade
You go halfway around now.
Side couples star thru and then pass thru
Star thru, you go right & left thru
Go forward eight and back, and load the boat
Oh, sweet lady mine
Swing the corner, promenade
Oh lady be good... to me

Oh! Lady Be Good Lyrics ID: 3137

Listen to my tale of woe, it's terribly sad but true
All dressed up, no place to go
Each ev'ning I'm awf'ly blue
I must win some winsome miss
Can't go on like this
I could blossom out I know
With somebody just like you. So...

Oh sweet and lovely
Lady be good
Oh lady be good to me
I am so awf'lly misunderstood
So lady be good, to me
Oh, please have some pity
I'm all alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood
So lady be good....to me

Auburn and brunette and blonde:
I love 'em all, tall or small
But somehow they don't grow fond
They stagger but never fall
Winter's gone, and now it's spring!
Love! where is thy sting?
If somebody won't respond
I'm going to end it all
So.....

Oh sweet and lovely lady, be good
Oh lady, be good to me!
I am so awf'ly misunderstood
So, lady be good to me
This is tulip weather
So let's put two and two together
I tell you
I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood
So, lady be good, to me

SHOW VERSION:

What a killing we could make;
Oh, lady, oh, please come through!
Susie, oh, for goodness' sake;
It isn't so hard to do.
in this moment of distress
hear my S.O.S.
All my future is at stake,
And, Susie, it's up to you,
So......

Oh sweet and lovely, lady be good
Oh Susie, be good to me
I am so awf'lly misunderstood
So Susie, be good, to me
Oh, please have some pity
I'm all alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood
So Susie be good....to me.

Listen to my tale of woe, it's terribly sad but true
All dressed up, no place to go
Each ev'ning I'm awf'ly blue
I must win some winsome miss
Can't go on like this
I could blossom out I know
With somebody just like you. So...

Oh sweet and lovely lady, be good
Oh lady, be good to me!
I am so awf'ly misunderstood
So, lady be good to me
This is tulip weather
So let's put two and two together
I tell you
I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood
So, lady be good, to me

Oh, sweet and lovely wifey, be good
Oh, wifey be good to me!
I've put an end to your widowhood
So wifey, be good to me
We should be more clubby
I hope you're glad to see your hubby
Or else, dear
I'll be a lonely babe in the wood
Oh wifey be good to me

Composed by George Gershwin.
Lyrics by Ira Gershwin.
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald; others.
