Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well the four ladies chain go straight across the ring
You turn and chain the ladies straight across
Join hands and circle left
Allemande left and a right & left grand
Mares eat oats and doe's eat oats and little lambs eat ivy
Swing and whirl the girl and promenade
Mares eat oats and doe's eat oats and little lambs eat ivy
A kid'll eat ivy, too - wouldn't you?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway around
Down the middle and dosado straight across
Star thru, pass thru, swing thru, don't stop
Spin the top and do the right & left thru
Square thru to three, looking for the corner sweetie
Swing that girl and promenade
Mares eat oats and doe's eat oats and little lambs eat ivy
A kid'll eat ivy, too - wouldn't you?

Mairzy Doats Lyrics ID: 2158

I know a ditty, nutty as a fruitcake
Goofy as a goon and silly as a loon
Some call it pretty, others call it crazy
But they all sing this tune:

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
Yes! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

If the words sound queer and funny to your ear
A little bit jumbled and jivey,
Sing "Mares eat oats and does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy.

Oh! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you-ooo?
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
Yes! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

If the words sound queer and funny to your ear
A little bit jumbled and jivey,
Sing "Mares eat oats and does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy.

Oh! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you-ooo?
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

Lyrics by Al Hoffman, Jerry Livingston and Milton Drake.
Recorded by Al Trace and His Silly Symphonists; The Merry Macs; others.
