Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Four little ladies promenade go inside the ring
Get back home and swing your man around and around and then
Join your hands and circle left, you circle left my friend
Left allemande your corner, then curlique your man
Do a partner trade, allemande left, and then you weave the ring
Go in and out around you go until you meet again
*Promenade go two by two, strolling down the avenue
I like dancing and romancing, Sweet Georgia Brown


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) you square thru four hands around you go
You count to four and then you dosado your corner, Joe
You swing thru, go two by two, and then boys you trade
Do a turn & left thru, turn the gal beside you
You slide thru and do it twice and then the corner swing
Do an allemande left new corners then you promenade the ring
*The only man that she can't get is the one she hasn't met
They all sigh and wanna die for Sweet Georgia Brown


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Promenade you truck on down, with the coolest one around
No gal made had got a shade on Sweet Georgia Brown


*Promenade go two by two, struttin' down the avenue
T'ain't her sister, that's her mister, Sweet Georgia Brown


*Promenade you truck on down, with the coolest cat in town
Gals despair, they don't compare with Sweet Georgia Brown


*Promenade go two by two, struttin' down the avenue
Two left feet, but oh so neat is Sweet Georgia Brown


*Two by two you truck on down, with the coolest gal around
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her, Sweet Georgia Brown

Sweet Georgia Brown
 
 

She just got here yesterday
Things are hot here, now they say
There's a big change in town
Gals are jealous, there's no doubt
Still the fellows rave about
Sweet, sweet Georgia Brown
And ever since she came the colored folks all claim, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

It's been said she knocks 'em dead when she lands in town
Since she came why it's a shame how she coos 'em down
Fellers she can't get are fellers she ain't met
Georgia claimed her, Georgia named her
Sweet Georgia Brown

Brownskin gals you'll get the blues
Brownskin pals you'll surely lose
And there's but one excuse
Now I've told you who she was
And I've told you what she does
Hand this gal her dues
This color'd maiden's pray'r is answer'd anywhere, say:

No gal made has got a shade on sweet Georgia Brown
Two left feet but oh so neat, has sweet Georgia Brown
They all sigh and wanna die for sweet Georgia Brown
I'll tell you just why, you know I don't lie... not much!

All those tips the porter slips to sweet Georgia Brown
They buy clothes at fashion shows with one dollar down
Oh boy, tips your hats, oh joy, she's the "Cat's"
Who's that mister? T'ain't her sister! Sweet Georgia Brown

Composed by Maceo Pinkard.
Lyrics by Kenneth Casey.
