Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
*I came home late on Sunday; the house was a screaming zoo
I couldn't tell if it was a party, or a wrecking crew

Smile at your corner
Allemande left the corner, come back, do a dosado
Boys star left in the middle of the ring, it's once around you know
Come on boys, meet your partner, turn her by the right, she's waiting there
Allemande left, come on back, full promenade go 'round the square
Hey (pah) da da da da, yah, (ha, hey). What's the rumpus?
What's the story boy? Come on now, what's the rumpus?


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Half a dozen dancers, doing hornpipes here and far
Something running in my kitchen, I think it's my car

Grin at your corner

*People hanging out my windows, and bowling down the hall
Music loud enough to shake the walls

With your corner, say, "Boo!"


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) do half sashay, and now you pass thru, but don't roam
Heads (sides) turn left, go single file and promenade outside back home
Sides (heads) star by the right in the center, it's once around you know
All get back to home, and face your corner, get ready, set and go!
Do an allemande left your corner, come on back turn partner by the right
I say
Back to the corner, turn her by the left, keep her and promenade all the
way
Hey (pah) da da da da, yah, (ha, hey). What's the rumpus?
**What's the story boy? Come on now, what's the rumpus?


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**Cad e an sceil a buachail? What's the rumpus?
(Last line in the original song.)


TAG

What's The Rumpus?
 
 

Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey)
Cad e an sceil a buachail? What's the rumpus?

Oh...

I came home late on Sunday
The house was a screaming zoo
I couldn't tell if it was a party
Or a full on wrecking crew
Barrels of booze in my bathroom
Bodies all over my floor
They were charging me a cover
At my own front door

When the whole thing's over
There's gonna be hell to pay
Cause when it's upside, downside, inside out
What more can you say?

Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Cad e an sceil a buachail? What's the rumpus?

A pack of Peruvian peddlers
Giving Guinness to the llamas
One came out of my bedroom
He was wearing my best pajamas
Half a dozen dancers
Doing hornpipes on the bar
Something running in the kitchen
And it might have been my car

When the whole thing's over
There's gonna be hell to pay
Cause when it's upside, downside, inside out
What more can you say?

Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Cad e an sceil a buachail? What's the rumpus?

Walshie's waltzing with a tree
Pete and Podge were on their backs
Drunken monkeys were drinking Draino
And the guards are in the jacks
People hanging out my windows
Bowling down the hall
Music loud enough
To shake the shingles off the wall

When the whole thing's over
There's gonna be hell to pay
Cause when it's upside, downside, inside out
What more can you say?
What more can you say?
What more can you say?

Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Cad e an sceil a buachail? What's the rumpus?

Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Cad e an sceil a buachail? What's the rumpus?

Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Cad e an sceil a buachail? What's the rumpus?

Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey (Pah) Da da da da, yah (Ha, hey) What's the rumpus?
Hey

Lyrics by Patrick Murphy, Stephen Wehmeyer and Steve Twigger.
