Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!
They went and built a skyscraper seven stories high
About as high as a buildin' orta grow

Allemande left and weave
Ev'rythin's like a dream in Kansas City,
It's better than a magic lantern show!

Swing, promenade
They've gone about as far as they can go.
They've gone about as far as they can go


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

All 4 ladies chain across the ring go
All promenade halfway the square
At the heads star thru and double pass thru
Cloverleaf, new centers square thru 3
Pass thru, left allemande your corner
Come back and promenade around the square
They've gone about as far as they can go
They've gone about as far as they can go


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!
Y' c'n turn the radiator on whenever you want some heat

Allemande left and weave
With ev'ry kind o' comfort ev'ry house is all complete
You c'n walk to privies in the rain

Swing, promenade
And never, ever need to wet your feet!
They've gone about as far as they can go


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!
They got a big theayter they call a burlesque
Fer fifty cents you c'n see a dandy show

Allemande left and weave
I could swear that she was padded from her shoulder to her heel,
But later in the second act...

Swing and promenade
She proved that ev'rythin' she had was real!
She went about as fur as she could go!

Everything's Up To Date In Kansas City
 
 

I went to Kansas City on a Friday
By Saturday I learned a thing or two
But up 'till then I didn't have an idea
Of what the mod'rn world was comin' to.
I counted twenty gas buggies goin' by theirselves
Almost every time I took a walk
An' then I put my ear to a bell telephone
An' a strange woman started into talk.
What next! What next?

Everything's up to date in Kansas City
They gone about as fer as they can go
They went an' built a skyscraper seven stories high
About as high as a buildin' orta grow.
Everything's like a dream in Kansas City
It's better than a magic lantern show.
You can turn the radiator on whenever you want some heat
With every kind of comfort every house is all complete.
You could walk the privees in the rain and never wet your feet!
They've gone about as fer as they can go.
They've gone about as fer as they can go!

Everything's up to date in Kansas City
They've gone about as fer as they can go
They got a big theatre they call a burleque
For fifty cents you could see a dandy show!
One of the gals is fat and pink and pretty
As round above as she was round below
I could swear that she was padded from her shoulder to her heel
But then she started dancin' and her dancin' made me feel
That every single thing she had was absolutely real!
She went about as fer as she could go
Yes, Sir! She went about as fer as she could go!

Composed by Richard Rodgers.
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II.
Recorded by Will Parker & Chorus.
