Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Yo, pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you so tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
Cause they're about to throw down

Allemande left and weave the ring
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word? "Word Up"


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands you go
Round that corner girl, you do a dosado
Swing thru today, the boys run right, ferris wheel and then
Centers pass thru, touch 1/4,
Follow your neighbor, 1/2 a spread
Swing the corner promenade
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word? "Word Up"


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies (men) promenade around you go
Get back home, swing that boy that you know
Join hands circle left you go,
Allemande left and weave the ring
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word? "Word Up"

Word Up! Lyrics ID: 1768

Your pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you
So tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
We're about to go down
And you know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call you've got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it you know that you'll be heard

Now all you sucker DJ's who think you're fly
There's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
Why you put on those airs and you act real cool
Got to realize that you're acting like fools
If there's music we can use it
You're free to dance
We don't have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call you've got to get it underway

Dial L for love, Dial L for love, Dial L for love
W.O.R.D. UP, W.O.R.D. UP, W.O.R.D. UP, W.O.R.D. UP

Yeh you sucker DJ's who think you're fly
There's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
Why you put on those airs and you act real cool
Got to realize that you're acting like fools
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call you've got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it you know that you'll be heard

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call you've got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it you know that you'll be heard

Lyrics by Larry Blackmon and Tomi Jenkins.
Recorded by Cameo.
