Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I was tired of my lady
We'd been together too long
Then in the personal columns
There was a letter that said

Left allemande and weave
If you like Piña Coladas
Gettin' caught in the rain
I'm the love that you've looked for
Write to me and escape


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you promenade halfway
Walk in a right & left thru (backaway) (come on sides)
Sides square thru get me four now
You make a right hand star
Sides star left turn it one time
Swing your corner, promenade
If you like making love at midnight
Come with me and escape


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I didn't think about my lady
I know that sounds kinda sad
But I wrote to the paper
Took out a personal ad

Left allemande and weave
Yes, I like Piña Coladas
Let's cut through all this red tape
We'll meet at noon at O'Malley's
Where we can plan our escape


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
So I waited with high hopes
And she walked in the place
It was my own lovely lady
I knew that smile on her face

Left allemande and weave
Since you like Piña Coladas
And gettin' caught in the rain
You're the lady I've looked for
I don't need to escape

Allemande left and swing

Escape (The Pina Colada Song)
 
 

I was tired of my lady, we'd been together too long.
Like a worn-out recording, of a favorite song.
So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed.
And in the personals column, there was this letter I read:

"If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
I'm the lady you've looked for, write to me, and escape."

I didn't think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean.
But me and my old lady, had fallen into the same old dull routine.
So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad.
And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half-bad.

"Yes, I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne.
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon, and cut through all this red tape.
At a bar called O'Malley's, where we'll plan our escape."

So I waited with high hopes, then she walked in the place.
I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face.
It was my own lovely lady, and she said, "Oh, it's you."
And we laughed for a moment, and I said, "I never knew"..

"That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape."

"If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
If you're not into yoga, if you have half-a-brain.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape.
You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape."
