Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I am a little Med Fly, I live in San Jose
Now everybody wants me to move away

Left allemande that corner, come back a dosado
Left allemande the corner, and you weave around the ring
They got my cousin, but I'm still buzzin'
Dosado and promenade
They sprayed me with that malathion, but I don't care
Cause that's what I get high on


FIGURE (Basic) (Twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

The heads lead to the right, you circle to a line
Go forward up, come on back, and now pass thru
Bend the line, go up and back
Do a right and left thru and turn the girl, and now back away
Join hands, circle to the left and go halfway around
Swing the corner lady, got to promenade her home
*They sprayed me with that malathion, but I don't care
Cause that's what I get high on


(Second and Fourth Tag)
*To use helicopters, it was the battle plan
So when you're home, sides face grand square


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

(32 beats of music ending with Circle left)
They got my cousin, but I'm still buzzin'
Left allemande, swing your own, promenade
They sprayed me with that malathion, but I don't care
Cause that's what I get high on


FIGURE (Plus) (Twice for heads, twice for sides)    Plus, corner progression

The heads square thru, 4 hands around you know
Around that corner lady dosado and make your wave
Linear cycle, men reverse the flutter wheel
Now the ladies lead dixie style
You make a wave, take a peek, trade the wave and swing
Swing the corner lady, promenade go round the ring
*They sprayed me with that malathion, but I don't care
Cause that's what I get high on


(Second and Fourth Tag)
*To use helicopters, it was the battle plan
So when you're home, heads ready star the route
