Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Four ladies promenade go once around the land
Come home and you swing with your man
Join up your hands, circle to the left and you're gonna move it right along
Allemande left with the corner, weave the ring
Well you're gonna wind and weave around you go, and you meet a little girl again
Swing with your lady, and you promenade the ring
Well is you is, or is you ain't my baby
Well if you is, you'd better get along home with me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples square thru, wack-a-do, wack-a-do, wack-a-do, wack-a-do, wack-a-do
Meet that pair go right & left thru, turn 'em now
Roll away, star thru
California twirl, forward up to the middle and back
Everybody square thru, go 3 hands, and the corner lady swing
Swing that girl and promenade back home again
Well is you is, or is you ain't my baby
Well if you is, you'd better get along home with me


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Allemande left the corner, box the gnat with the partner
Girls star left once around inside the set, meet your man
Box the gnat, hold on, do a grand right & left
Hand in hand 'til you meet her once again
Turn your partner right, look for the corner, left allemande
Go back swing your lady and you promenade again
Well is you is, or is you ain't my baby
Well if you is, you'd better get along home with me


CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across that set, and you turn 'em by the left
Four ladies chain 3/4 round, now turn this girl
Join hands, circle to the left
Ladies in the men sashay, circle to the left that way
Then you allemande left with the corner, grand old right & left
When you meet that girl you know, you promenade the ring
Well is you is, or is you ain't my baby
Well if you is, you'd better get along home with me

Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby
 
 

I got a gal who's always late
Anytime we have a date
But I love her
Yes I love her

I'm gonna walk right up to her gate
And see if I can get it straight
'Cause I want her
I'm gonna ask her

Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
The way you're acting lately makes me doubt
Yous is still my baby, baby
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out

A woman is a creature
That has always been strange
Just when you're sure of one
You find she's gone and made a change

Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
Maybe baby's found somebody new
Or is my baby still my baby true?

Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
Maybe baby's found somebody new
Or is my baby still my baby true?

Lyrics by Billy Austin and Louis Jordan.
Recorded by Louis Jordan.
