Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade, go one time around
Why, get along home swing, you swing your man around
You join your hands, circle to the left around the ring you go
Left allemande the corner and weave the ring you know
Do we really want it? Do we really need it?
Dosado her and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The head (side) two couples square thru four hands around you know
All the way to the corner and do a dosado
Touch 1/4 and scoot back and go
Boys run around your girl and square thru tonight
3/4 around now, swing your corner
Left allemande and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)    Plus

Do an allemande left and all eight spin the top
Turn your partner right, girls star left 3/4 round
When you meet, spin it again, turn her right
Boys star left 3/4, when you meet turn thru
Do an allemande left, swing and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

The head (side) two couples square thru 4 hands around you know
All the way to the corner and do a dosado
Once around and make an ocean wave
Relay the deucey (let 16 beats go by)
Swing corner and promenade
You got no time for yourself and more for old Jim Beam
A going crazy, the American dream

The American Dream
 
 

Too many lawyers in football
Baseball's gotta few
The pitcher got a million dollars
And the quarterback he got 2
Pitcher threw his arm away
And the quarterback burned his knee
And this they did so they could live the American dream

Now there are some preachers on TV
With a suit and a tie and a vest
They want you to send your money to the Lord
But they give you their address
Cause all of your donations are completely tax free
God bless you all, but most of all send your money

Do you really want it?
Do you really need it?
Ya gotta keep on grindin' just to try to keep it
Ya got no time for yourself, ya got more for ole Jim Beam
You're goin' crazy dreamin'
The American dream

Reagan is a cuttin' the budget, makin' the democrats scream
Says we gotta control inflation
Quit spendin' our money on everything
But this year's tax increase, why, it's the biggest in history
Round and around we go, where we stop who knows?
The American dream

Do you really want it?
Do you really need it?
Ya gotta keep on grindin' just to try to keep it
We got no time for ourselves and more for ole Jim Beam
You're goin' crazy dreamin'
The American dream
We're goin' crazy dreamin'
The American dream

Hail to the chief!

Lyrics by Hank Williams, Jr..
