Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Oh, I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone
I'd get you and keep you in my arms evermore

Four ladies chain across that ring and here we go
Turn that girl and chain her back
You take her by the hand, promenade
Melt in your heart of stone
I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Hey heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around you do
Dosado that corner girl alone
Star thru and then reverse that flutter wheel you know
Sweep 1/4 more and make a wave and here we go
Swing thru, hey boy trade, turn thru and then
Left allemande, you promenade her home
I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Hey, now four little ladies chain, turn my lady round
Half sashay and circle left let's go
All four ladies rollaway, circle left go round today
Left allemande the corner girl, weave around the ring
And out on the Briney with the moon so big and shiny
Melt in your heart of stone
I'd love to get you on a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

(I'd Like To Get You On A) Slow Boat To China
 
 

I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Get you and keep you
In my arms ever more
Leave all your lovers
Weepin' on a far away shore

Out on the briny
With the moon big and shiny
Melting your heart of stone
Honey I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All by myself alone

I'd love to get ya
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone
A twist in the rudder
And a rip in the sails
Drifting and dreamin'
Honey throw the compass over the rail

Out on the ocean
Far from all the commotion
Melting your heart of stone
Honey I'd love to get you
On a slow boat to China
All to myself alone

Lyrics by Frank Loesser.
Recorded by Kay Kyser; Freddy Martin; Bing Crosby; many others.
