Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Four ladies chain, chain 3/4 round, turn the girl
Eight to the middle and come on back with you
Heads pass thru, cloverleaf, sides pass thru
Swing that girl in front of you, allemande left all eight of you
Come on now right & left grand, a grand old right & left
When you meet her, ah! promenade
Promenade just bounce along, right on back to old Hong Kong
In dreamy Chinatown


FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

Heads square thru to Chinatown
Dosado you go
Swing thru down the line, boys run and then
Couples trade, face your partner, everybody swing your maid
And allemande left those corners all
Grand old right & left when you meet, ah! promenade
Promenade you can't go wrong, right on back to old Hong Kong
In dreamy Chinatown

Chinatown
 
 

Chinatown, my Chinatown,
Where the lights are low.
Hearts that know no other land,
Drifting to and fro.

Dreamy, dreamy Chinatown--
Almond eyes of brown.
Hearts are light and life seems bright
In dreamy Chinatown.

Composed by Jean Schwartz.
Lyrics by William Jerome.
