Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain 3/4 around
You rollaway, circle left I sing
*Send me two lips like roses and clover
Left allemande, weave that ring go
Sandman, I'm so alone
Dosado, promenade her back home
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, send me a dream


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Send me two arms to hug and old me

FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Head (side) couples promenade halfway around
Come down the middle with a right & left thru
Turn your lady with a half sashay, then star thru and dosado
All the way, but a right hand star, turn only halfway
Girls turn back and swing
Left allemande and promenade I sing
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, send me a dream


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway round the ring
Down the middle and pass thru, do a partner trade
Reverse the flutter wheel and then sweep 1/4
Pass thru and seesaw to a left hand wave
Boys trade and then, boys cross run to the right
The boys run and then you promenade tonight
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, send me a dream

Mr. Sandman
 
 

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung..........)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give him two lips like roses and clover (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung...)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung)

Mr. Sandman (male voice: "Yesss?") bring us a dream
Give him a pair of eyes with a "come-hither" gleam
Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace
Mr Sandman, someone to hold (someone to hold)
Would be so peachy before we're too old
So please turn on your magic beam
Mr Sandman, bring us, please, please, please
Mr Sandman, bring us a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung".)

Lyrics by Pat Ballard.
Recorded by The Chordettes.
