Cue Sheet
 

(Done as a duet: 1st caller, 2nd caller, both)

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
(1st) Hey, I wanta do a little rockin'
(2nd) Yeah, I feel a little rowdy myself
(1st) See if you can sing the high parts, brother
(2nd) I can if you give me some help
Walk around that corner lady
See saw round your own
Allemande left that corner
Gonna weave the ring
(1st) We've been down a whole lotta alleys
(2nd) And shook a whole lotta cans
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl, promenade that ring
(1st) Here we are smack dab in the middle
(2nd) But I think we can adjust
(Both) We ain't half bad for two old cats like us


FIGURE (twice heads - twice sides)    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway round that ring
Down the middle square thru four hands around I sing
Four hands around and then dosado
Swing thru two by two, boys you run
Half tag, trade & roll, pass thru, trade by
Swing that lady go round & round, promenade that ring
(1st) *We can take it to the limit
(2nd) *Or take it to the bus
(Both) We ain't half bad for two old cats like us


ALTERNATE LYRICS

(1st) *We've had a few doors slammed on our tails
(2nd) *We've been kicked and cussed


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
(32 beat musical interlude)
Allemande left and weave the ring
(1st) We've been down a whole lotta alleys
(2nd) And shook a whole lotta cans
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl, promenade that ring
(1st) Here we are smack dab in the middle
(2nd) But I think we can adjust
(Both) We ain't half bad for two old cats like us


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
(1st) This younger generation has us on our toes
(2nd) Playing everything from western swing to that good old rock and roll
Walk around that corner lady
See saw round your own
Allemande left that corner
Gonna weave the ring
(1st) We've been down a whole lotta alleys
(2nd) And shook a whole lotta cans
Swing and whirl that pretty little girl promenade that ring
(1st) Here we are smack dab in the middle
(2nd) But I think we can adjust
(Both) We ain't half bad for two old cats like us

Two Old Cats
 
 

Hey, I'd like to do a little rocking
Ray, I get a little rowdy myself
See if you can sing the high part, brother
Hank, I can if you can give me some help

'Cause we're the kind, when we set our minds
We're gonna do it or bust
Well, we ain't half bad for two old cats like us

There ain't nothing like honky tonk music
When you get an itching to play
And singing those songs like Hey Good Lookin'
And Baby Tell Me What'd I Say

We can take it to the limit or take it back to the bus
Ain't no problem for two old cats like us

We've been down a whole lot of alleys, we shook a whole lot of cans
There ain't too much about prowling or howling
That we don't understand

We've had a few doors slammed on our tails
We've been kicked and cussed
But everything's cool for two old cats like us

Now this younger generation, Ray, is keeping us on our toes
Playing everything from Western Swing to that good old rock 'n' roll
And here we are smack dab in the middle, but I think we can adjust
Hell, there ain't nothing new for two old cats like us

We've been down a whole lot of alleys, and shook a whole lot of cans
There ain't too much about prowling or howling
That we don't understand

We've had a few doors slammed on our tails
We've been kicked and cussed
But everything's cool for two old cats like us
But everything's cool for two old cats like us

Let's go prowlin'
All right!

Lyrics by Troy Seals.
Recorded by Ray Charles and Hank Williams, Jr..
