Rockin' Pneumonia
Huey "Piano" Smith; Johnny Rivers; Aerosmith 1957
  (Tarheel 156)   Hal Dodson

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade inside of the ring
Back home swing your man around and then
You join your hands, circle left get 'em moving you know
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring & you go
* I want to jump but I'm afraid I'll fall
Why don't you swing and promenade the hall
That young man's rhythm got a hold of me, too
I've got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* I want to holler, but the joint's too small

* I want some loving baby, that ain't all


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) you promenade halfway
Why don't you square thru to four I say
Go all the way around, now swing thru for me
Boys run to the right, (couples) circulate you see
Chain down the line, now square thru to three
Why don't you swing and promenade you see
I said that young man's rhythm got a hold of me, too
I've got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu


TAG

Swing her
I've got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu
