Cue Sheet


Let's join 8 hands and circle to the left around you go
Allemande your corner, turn your own a right elbow
The men star left, once around the ring
Star promenade your queen
Girls backtrack, go right & left grand
Hand over hand, until you find your man
You promenade around with the man that you found
Yes, promenade with Mr. In-Between

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain, you turn the girl that way
Heads go up and back, and then you whirlaway
Star thru (keep your arch), dive thru, circle half
Pass thru, round one and make a line, up and back
Box the gnat you do, go right & left thru
Turn your girl, circle eight around the ring you do
Allemande your corner, swing your own around so keen
Then promenade with Mr. In-Between
Girls backtrack, turn 'em right hand round
Allemande your corner, promenade
Walk on home with Mr. In-Between


You swing with Mr. In-Between

Call Me Mr. In-Between

(Mr. In-Between, Mr. In-Between)
(Pickin's mighty lean, Mr. In-Between)

Well, I'm too old for girls and I'm too young for women
I've looked all around and my hopes are a-dimmin'
I feel like a fish not allowed any swimmin'
And it makes a fella mean
To feel he's a part of the Lost Generation
I feel like a choo-choo that can't find the station
I work like a dog with no recreation
They call me Mr. In-Between

(Mr. In-Between, Mr. In-Between)
(Makes a fella mean, Mr. In-Between)

Got a hotrod Chevy with a twin carburetor
And I know a gal that's a real sharp tomater
And she's got a Daddy with a Caddy that'll date 'er
You see what I mean
Those sweet little things just set me a-droolin'
I'm too big for sodas and I'm too old for schoolin'
Too young for lovin' but I'm too old for foolin'
They call me Mr. In-Between

(Mr. In-Between, Mr. In-Between)
(Tries to live so clean, Mr. In-Between)

I feel like a sailboat kept in a bottle
I feel like an engineer that can't find the throttle
I'm too small to walk but I'm too big to toddle
And, Lordy, I'm turnin' green
To see all the men makin' time with the ladies
The high school kids at the show with their babies
While I run around like a dog with the rabies
They call me Mr. In-Between

(Mr. In-Between, Mr. In-Between)
(Better leave the scene, Mr. In-Between)

Lyrics by Harlan Howard.
