Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands, circle round the track
Left allemande, come back and box the gnat
Four girls star left, go once around
Box the gnat and then, do the right & left grand
Oh, I can't tell the boys from the girls
Dosado, they're messing up my world
Promenade
They all wear long hair and bouncy curls
And I can't tell the boys from the girls


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Left allemande, come back and promenade
The heads wheel around, go right & left thru
Slide thru and then go right & left thru and turn the girl
Square thru 3/4, three hands around and then
Swing the corner girl, left allemande
Promenade, go walking round the land
They all wear long hair and bouncy curls
And I can't tell the boys from the girls


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    A1, corner progression

Heads lead right and circle four you do
Make a line and do the right & left thru
Roll away and then, rock up to the middle and back
Pass thru and tag the line and do the centers in
Now you cast off 3/4, then cross trail thru
Swing the corner girl and promenade
They all wear long hair and bouncy curls
And I can't tell the boys from the girls

I Can't Tell The Boys From The Girls
 
 

Well I've been a bachelor all my life
I thought the time had come to take a wife
So I moved to the city to find myself a mate
But I get all confused when I start looking for a date

For I can't tell the boys from the girls
And friends, it's really messing up my world
They all wear long hair and bouncy curls
And I can't tell the boys from the girls

I walked in a picture show and found a seat
This pretty little thing sat down in front of me
I leaned over and I asked her if she'd like some company
But I nearly died when "she" turned out to be a "he"

For I can't tell the boys from the girls
And friends, it's really messing up my world
They all wear long hair and bouncy curls
And I can't tell the boys from the girls

I'm going to leave this city and go home
I guess I'll stay single from now on
But I won't make the same mistake by coming here again
Cause I can't tell difference between the hers and him

For I can't tell the boys from the girls
And friends, it's really messing up my world
They all wear long hair and bouncy curls
And I can't tell the boys from the girls

Oh, no I can't tell the boys from the girls

Lyrics by Lester Flatt and Bob Leftridge.
Recorded by Lester Flatt.
