It's A Sin To Tell A Lie
Fats Waller (1935) 1933
  (Lore 1181)   Glen Green

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie

Left allemande that corner, do a dosado your own
Men star by the left, one time around you go
Home you go, dosado, do a left allemande
Swing your own and promenade
Be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Now heads square thru and go 4 hands around
Around that corner lady dosado
Swing thru and then boys run to the right
Couples circulate, then wheel & deal my friend
Come on and pass thru, and trade by and
Swing that corner girl, left allemande and promenade
Be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
I cross my heart and hope to die
I'll never, never, never tell another white lie
Took a little doll out on a date last night
Next to her, Gravel Gertie would have looked all right

Allemande left with the corner, do a dosado your own
Men star by the left, one time around you go
Home you go, do a dosado, do a left allemande
Swing your own and promenade
So Lord, have mercy on a no-account sinner
Give me one more chance to let another guy win her
Cross my heart and hope to die
I'll never, never, never, tell another white lie
