Everything's Up To Date In Kansas City
Will Parker & Chorus 1943
  (Desert Gold 25)   John Marshall

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!
They went and built a skyscraper seven stories high
About as high as a buildin' orta grow

Allemande left and weave
Ev'rythin's like a dream in Kansas City,
It's better than a magic lantern show!

Swing, promenade
They've gone about as far as they can go.
They've gone about as far as they can go


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

All 4 ladies chain across the ring go
All promenade halfway the square
At the heads star thru and double pass thru
Cloverleaf, new centers square thru 3
Pass thru, left allemande your corner
Come back and promenade around the square
They've gone about as far as they can go
They've gone about as far as they can go


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!
Y' c'n turn the radiator on whenever you want some heat

Allemande left and weave
With ev'ry kind o' comfort ev'ry house is all complete
You c'n walk to privies in the rain

Swing, promenade
And never, ever need to wet your feet!
They've gone about as far as they can go


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!
They got a big theayter they call a burlesque
Fer fifty cents you c'n see a dandy show

Allemande left and weave
I could swear that she was padded from her shoulder to her heel,
But later in the second act...

Swing and promenade
She proved that ev'rythin' she had was real!
She went about as fur as she could go!
