Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

You docey round your corner gal, you see saw round your taw
Go to the left for a left allemande, and now the old gee-haw (RLG)
Go hand over hand around the ring
And when you meet your gal, box the gnat
The gals star left go once around the world
Turn your partner by the right, your corners box the flea
Pull 'er by, then promenade around the ring with me
Promenade around the square, take her home and keep her there
She's the little gal that keeps the candy store


FIGURE    A1, unknown progression

Now 1 & 3 do a right & left thru (backaway), 2 & 4 the same
Heads to the left, all trail thru, u-turn back again
Pass thru to a right & left thru, now wheel the gals around
Trail thru to the corner gal, you'll swing her up and down
Allemande left new corners, allemande right your partners
Go back and swing your corners ever more
You'll promenade her, you'll serenade her
She's the little gal that keeps the candy store
Cue Sheet side B

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

You docey round your corner, see saw your partner
The head two couples center, box the gnat
Pass thru, separate, go around just one
Star by the left out in the middle, once around that ring you run
Pick up your corner, take her along
The inside out, the outside in
The inside ladies roll away a half sashay
All 4 ladies backtrack, go round the other way
Turn 'em with a left around, you'll promenade the town
Who'd you get gals?
Why old Jellybean!
So swing old Jellybean


CLOSER   

All join hands and circle left, you circle the ring
Swing on the corner, swing and you swing
Allemande left your corner, allemande right your own
Go back and swing that corner lady just as though she were your own
Join your hands and circle, you circle the ring
Reverse back, go single file
Gents reach back with the old right hand, you box the gnat
Star by the right an eight hand star, then right after that
The gals reach back for a left hand swing, all promenade that ring
Who'd you get gals?
Why old Jellybean!
So swing old Jellybean

Jelly Bean
 
 

Now there's a lady killing champ
He's just a soda water vamp
His name is Willie Green
They call him "Jelly Bean"
Tries to flirt with every queen
He never shows a dime
But all he does is spend the time
In the season's latest clothes
All he does is stand and pose

He's a curbstone cootie, Papa's pride and beauty
They call him "Jelly Bean"
Pins his hat in the middle, crushes it down
And rolls his "Jelly Bean" 'til his honey is found
The girls don't deny it, they think he's a riot
Oh, you know what I mean
He can't drink Bevo, Beer or Wine
Craves his ice cream soda
All the time he's a drug store cutie, sidewalk beauty
They call him "Jelly Bean"

Dress'd in his fancy pinch-back suit
All of the girls think he's so cute
His father he must thank
For Dad has coin in bank
"Jelly's" mind is just a blank
At any dance he can't be beat
Because his brains are in his feet
Shirts are always made of silk
He's a hound for malted milk

He's a curbstone cootie, Papa's pride and beauty
They call him "Jelly Bean"
Pins his hat in the middle, crushes it down
And rolls his "Jelly Bean" 'til his honey is found
The girls don't deny it, they think he's a riot
Oh, you know what I mean
At hard work he makes no attempt
In the army they said "he's exempt"
All the time he's a drug store cutie, sidewalk beauty
They call him "Jelly Bean"

He's a curbstone cootie, Papa's pride and beauty
They call him "Jelly Bean"
Pins his hat in the middle, crushes it down
And rolls his "Jelly Bean" 'til his honey is found
The girls don't deny it, they think he's a riot
Oh, you know what I mean
He can't drink Bevo, Beer or Wine
Craves his ice cream soda
All the time he's a drug store cutie, sidewalk beauty
They call him "Jelly Bean"

Lyrics by Sam Rosen, Joe Verges, and Jimmy Dupre.
