Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, unknown progression

Now the four little ladies chain 3/4 around the ring
Join up hands, circle left you know
Hey, roll away a half sashay, circle left around that way
Left allemande, go weaving around the row
So find your girl and do your thing
Dosado around I sing, promenade go walkin' down the lane
*You got a sharp one dancing kid, don't let 'em say you never did
Your best, be my guest, make it rain

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) pass thru, cloverleaf that's what you do
Side (head) pair let's do the right & left thru, pass thru
Swing thru the outside two, gents trade and star thru
Frontier whirl and then slide thru
Left allemande that corner girl, docey around your own
Swing the corner, promenade that Jane
*Fan the flame and make it hotter, I think I can dance on water
As long as you can make it rain


*Now your wealth don't make you better, babe
Cause I can tread water, baby
As long as you think you can make it rain


Little girl why don't you make it rain, babe make it rain

Make It Rain

The wealthy ones like you look down
On the common folk like me
Makin' bets to what degree of fool we are
Through your rose-colored windows
You see yourself above us
Standin' in the mud and gazin' at the stars

But the rich and poor have in common
The common cold, the heartburn and the heartache
Put our pants on just the same
Your worth don't make you better, babe
'Cause I can tread water, babe
As long as you think you make it rain

While you got your raisin', girl
And your diamond-studded world
I got pulled up on the hungry side o' town
I cut my teeth on bacon rind
There ain't no hide as tough as mine
But it might be fun awhile to be your clown

So, get your whip and do your thing
And I'll run around the ring
Ride my white horse, wear my armor too
Aah, but I don't easy blister, babe
I'll be your Court Jester, babe
Don't think you won't pay the fiddler, too

I put your hand in mine
It was a shockin' time to find
The water hot, the current strong and deep and wet
You had me strugglin' for a time
A-draggin' on your line
But never fear, this fish will never swim

While you're playin' with my mind
I'll be payin' with your money, honey
As long as your account can stand the drain
I'll fan the flame and make it hotter
'Cause I think I can walk on water
As long as you can make it rain

Aww, I'll hang around awhile
Study your style
Come out a whole lot wiser man indeed
'Cause the last time anyone as grand
As you appeared and looked around
Found the grandest star up in the East

Hey, but I don't see no halo
Just a little girl with a lot of gold
Wantin' one more trinket for her golden scene
Aah, but you got a hot one hangin', kid
Don't let him say you never did your best
Be my guest, make it rain

Aah, make it rain
Babe, make it rain
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain

Lyrics by Billy Mize.
Recorded by Dean Martin.
