Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Everybody's doing a brand new dance now
Come on baby, do the Loco-Motion

Allemande left your corner, dosado now
Left allemande and you weave the ring
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul
Swing your girl, promenade on home
So come on, come on
Do the Loco-Motion with me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Move around the floor in a Loco-Motion

*Chug-A-Chug a motion like a railroad train now


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around now
Dosado that corner you found
Swing thru and then the boys run right
Do a ferris wheel, new centers pass thru
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 and then
Swing the corner, promenade on home
So come on, come on
Do the Loco-Motion with me

The Loco-motion
 
 

Ev'rybody's doin' a brand new dance now.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
I know you'll get to like it if you give it a chance now.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
My little baby sister can do it with ease,
It's easier than learnin' your ABC's,
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me.

You gotta swing your hips now,
Come on baby, jump up, jump back,
Oh, well, I think you got the knack!

Now that you can do it, let's make a chain now.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
A chugga-chugga motion like a railroad train now.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
Do it nice and easy now, don't lose control,
A little bit of rhythm and a lot of soul.
Come on, come on, do the locomotion with me.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.

Move around the floor in a loco-motion.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
Do it holdin' hands if you get the notion.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
There's never been a dance that's so easy to do.
It even makes you happy when you're feelin' blue.
So come on, come on, do the locomotion with me.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.
C'mon, baby, do the locomotion.

Lyrics by Gerry Goffin and Carole King.
Recorded by Grand Funk Railroad.
