Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
I don't want to go to school (I don't want to go to school)
Just to learn to be a parrot (Just to learn to be a parrot)
And recite a silly rule

Allemande and weave
If growing up means it would be
Dosado, then promenade with me
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me! Not I


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) star left, find your corner waiting there
Touch 1/4 when you meet her
Scoot back, scoot back again, there's no one sweeter
Girls run right, lines forward up and back
Touch 1/4 and then boy run right, the corner, swing
Swing the girl around and promenade that ring
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me!


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle left
I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
I don't want to wear a tie (I don't want to wear a tie)
And a serious expression (and a serious expression)
In the middle of July

Allemande and weave
And if it means I must prepare
Dosado and promenade from there
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me! Not I


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
Not a penny will I pinch (not a penny will I pinch)
I will never grow a moustache (I will never grow a moustache)
Or a fraction of an inch

Allemande and weave
'Cause growing up is awfuller
Dosado, promenade with her
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me! Not I


TAG

Four ladies chain over and back
I'll never grow up, never grow up

I Won't Grow Up
 
 

I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
I don't wanna go to school (I don't wanna go to school)
Just to learn to be a parrot (Just to learn to be a parrot)
And recite a silly rule (And recite a silly rule)

If growing up means it would be
Beneath my dignity to climb a tree
I'll never grow up, never grow up
Never grow up, not me
Not I. Not me. Not me!

I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
I don't wanna wear a tie (I don't wanna wear a tie)
Or a serious expression (Or a serious expression)
In the middle of July (In the middle of July)

And if it means I must prepare
To shoulder burdens with a worried air
I'll never grow up, never grow up
Never grow up, not me
Not I. Not me.
So there!

Never gonna be a man, I won't
Like to see somebody try and make me
Anyone who wants to try
And make me turn into a man
Catch me if you can

I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
Not a penny will I pinch (Not a penny will I pinch)
I will never grow a mustache (I will never grow a mustache)
Or a fraction of an inch (Or a fraction of an inch)

'Cause growing up's awfuller than
All the awful things that ever were
I'll never grow up, never grow up
Never grow up, no sir!

I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
I will never even try (I will never even try)
I will do what Peter tells me (I will do what Peter tells me)
And I'll never ask him why (And I'll never ask him why)

We won't grow up (We won't grow up)
We will never grow a day (We will never grow a day)
And if someone tries to make us (And if someone tries to make us)
We will simply run away (We will simply run away)

I won't grow up (I won't grow up)
No, I promise that I won't (No, I promise that I won't)
I will stay a boy forever (I will stay a boy forever)
And be banished if I don't (And be banished if I don't)

Cause Neverland will always be
The home of youth and joy and liberty
I'll never grow up, never grow up
Never grow up, not me
Not me. Not me. Not me.
No sir.
Not me!

Composed by Mark ("Moose") Charlap.
Lyrics by Carolyn Leigh.
Recorded by Mary Martin; others.
 
Comments

Original cue sheet had "grand circle" (meaning Circle Left)
for the opener, middle break and closer,
as opposed to the call written by Jack Berg
