Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Four Ladies Promenade one time round the ring
Well, you come on back and Swing your man, everybody Swing
Join hands, Circle go walking round the track
Allemande that corner girl - Weave the ring like that
I said "hey now", "hey, now", "iko iko all day"
You Swing and Whirl the pretty little girl and Promenade her away
I said "hey now", "hey now", "iko iko all day"
"He's not a man, he's a dancing machine", "iko iko all day"


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade outside halfway round the ring
Come down the middle a right & left thru, turn the girl and then
Sides square thru four hands you go
Dosado the corner girl, once around you know
Touch 1/4 then scoot back for me
Swing that corner girl around; promenade you see
I said "hey now", "hey now", "iko iko all day"
"He's not a man, he's a dancing machine", "iko iko all day"


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Shake, shake, shake senora; shake your body line
Work, work, work senora; work it all the time
Dance, dance, dance senora; dance your body line

Shake, shake, shake
Allemande left and weave the ring
Jump in the line, rock your body in time
Jump in the line, rock your body in time
Jump in the line, rock your body in time
Jump in the line, rock your body in time

Jock-A-Mo (Iko, Iko) Lyrics ID: 1241

My grand-ma and your grand-ma were
Sit-tin' by the fire.
My grand-ma told your grand-ma:
"I'm gon-na set your flag on fire."

Chorus:
Talk-in' 'bout, hey now! Hey now!
I-ko, i-ko, un-day
Jock-a-mo fee-no ai na-né.
Jock-a-mo fee na-né.

Look at my king all dressed in red.
I-ko, i-ko, un-day.
I betcha five dollars he'll kill you dead.
Jock-a-mo fee na-né

(repeat chorus)

My flag boy and your flag boy were
Sit-tin' by the fire.
My flag boy told your flag boy:
"I'm gon-na set your flag on fire."

(repeat chorus)

See that guy all dressed in green?
I-ko, i-ko, un-day.
He's not a man; he's a lovin' machine.
Jock-a mo fee na-né

(repeat chorus)

Lyrics by James Crawford.
Recorded by The Dixie Cups (1965).
