OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    C4

Circle left
*I took my trouble down to Madam Ruth
You know that gypsy with that gold-capped tooth

Left allemande, curlique and then, trade, roll to face
Men star left around that land
Come on and turn the partner by the right
The girls star left one time around
Box the gnat, promenade
**I told her that I'd been a flop with chicks
I'd been that way since 1956


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads square thru 4 hands and then
All the way now swing thru my friend
Don't you stop, spin the top for me
Right & left thru, flutter wheel around the ring you see
Pass the ocean, girls trade,
swing thru and the boys trade
Turn thru, allemande that corner, promenade her you do
**She looked in my palm and she made a magic sign
She said all you need is Love Potion No. 9


ALTERNATE LYRICS FOR FIGURES 1 & 2

**It smelled like turpentine, it looked like India ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes...I took a drink


ALTERNATE LYRICS FOR MIDDLE BREAK


*I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in sight

**But when I kissed that cop down at 34th and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion No. 9


ALTERNATE LYRICS FOR FIGURES 3 & 4

**She looked in my palm and she made a magic sign
She said all you need is Love Potion No. 9

**But when I kissed that cop down at 34th and Vine
He broke my little bottle of...


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
She bent down, turned around and gave me a wink
Said I'm gonna mix it up right here in the sink
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like India ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes...I took a drink

Swing her
Love Potion No. 9
