Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Allemande left and the four ladies star
The gents run around but not too far
Allemande left and the four gents star
The girls run around but not too far
Allemande left with your left hand
Right to your partner a right & left grand
Big foot up and the little foot down
Now promenade your honey around
Too old...too old
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore


FIGURE   

Four ladies center and back to the bar
Four gents center with a right hand star
Turn the opposite lady for an allemande thar
Back up, boys, but not too far
Throw in the clutch and put 'er in low
Twice around the ring you go
When you meet your partner, it's on you go
Catch the next for a dopaso
It's her by left, the left hand around
Now corner right with a right hand around
Back to your partner with a left hand around
Now promenade your corner when you come down
*When I was young, and in my prime
I never did learn a square dance line
But now I'm old and a-gittin' grey
Square dance, brother, is all I can say


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Down in Arkansaw on my knees
I thought I heard a chicken sneeze
I looked up and here's what I saw
A bald headed man with a pretty little taw


*When I was young I was mighty fat
The ole square dance has changed all that
Now I'm old and a-gittin' thin
All I am is bones and skin


*When I was young, I had a lot of pep
I could get around, didn't need any he'p
Now I'm old and a-gittin' grey
These dog-goned crutches are in my way

Too Old To Cut The Mustard
 
 

When I was young I had lots of pep,
I could get around I didn't need no help.
But since I'm old and a-gettin' gray,
The people look at me and say....

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

I used to could jump just like a deer,
But now I need a new landing gear.
I used to could jump a picket fence,
But now I'm lucky if I jump an inch.

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

When I was young I had an automobile,
I'd scoot myself right under the wheel.
I had to fight the gals off with a stick,
But now they say, "Oh, he makes me sick"

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

Lyrics by Bill Carlisle.
Recorded by Dick Todd; Ernest Tubb; Marlene Dietrich and Rosemary Clooney.
