Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Why don't you circle left, go walking 'round that old ring
You allemande your corner, then your partner swing
Four ladies promenade go one time and then
Hey box the gnat, with a right & left grand
All I can say is "Wowie", look at where I am
Dosado your partner, promenade that old land
Hey, what a set-up, Holy Cow! They'd never believe it
If my friends could see me now


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, no progression

Why don't those heads square thru 4 hands around that old town
Dosado one time around, star thru, forward 8 and back to the land
Square thru and count 3 hands, do a left allemande
Well dosado and to that corner go
Swing that girl around and promenade her back home
You promenade her round
Just struttin' high with that gal
Oh, if my friends could see me now


TAG

And really swing her
If my friends could see me now

If My Friends Could See Me Now Lyrics ID: 612

If they could see me now
That little gang of mine
I'm eatin' fancy chow and drinkin' fancy wine
I'd like those stumble bums
To see for a fact
The kind of top-drawer, first-rate chums I attract
All I can say is "Wow-ee!"
Look-a where I am
Tonight I landed, POW!
Right in a pot of jam
What a setup, holy cow!
They'd never believe it
If my friends could see me now!

If they could see me now
My little dusty group
Traipsin' round this million dollar chicken coop
I'd hear those thrift shop cats say, "Brother get her!
Draped on a bedspread made from three kinds of fur!"
All I can say is "Wow!"
Wait till the riff and raff
See just exactly how
He signed his autograph
What a build up, holy cow!
They'd never believe it
If my friends could see me now!

If they could see me now
Alone with Mr. V
Who's waitin' on me like he was a maitre'd
I hear my buddies sayin', "Crazy, what gives?
Tonight she's living like the other half lives!"
To think the highest brow
Which I must say is he
Should pick the lowest brow
Which there's no doubt is me
What a step up, holy cow!
They'd never believe it
If my friends could see me now!

They'd never believe it!
They'd never believe it!
If my friends could see me now!
Hi girls, it's me! Charity!

Composed by Cy Coleman.
Lyrics by Dorothy Fields.
