Cue Sheet


Circle left
If you knew Susie like I knew Susie
Oh, oh, oh what a gal

Allemande the corner, box the gnat at home
Four ladies promenade, go walkin' round the ring you roam
Turn the partner by the right, and the corner allemande
Come back and swing and promenade go hand in hand
Go home with Susie, go dancin' with Susie
Oh, oh what a gal

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade, halfway around
Sides (heads) star thru, pass thru, dosado
Swing thru, girls circulate, boys trade
Turn thru, allemande left, and weave by three
And now, pass Susie's sister, pass cousin Kate
Pass Susie's mother
, swing and promenade it's great!
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh, oh, what a gal


(I really mean it) Oh, oh what a gal

If You Knew Susie (Like I Know Susie)

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
There's none so classy
As this fair lassie,
Oh! Oh! Holy Moses, what a chassis
We went riding, she didn't balk
Back from Yonkers
I'm the one that had to walk
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! What a girl!

If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
She wears long tresses
And nice tight dresses
Oh! Oh!
What a future she possesses
Out in public
How she can yawn
In a parlour, you would think the war was on
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! What a girl!

Lyrics by B.G. "Buddy" DeSylva and Joseph Meyer.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Eddie Cantor; Gene Kelly; Frank Sinatra.
