Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Johnny is a joker (he's a bird)
A very funny joker (he's a bird)

Well, the men star right and you roll it around
Allemande the corner lady, weave around the ring
But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog
Swing your girl around and promenade on home
His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
Johnny is a joker tryin' to steal my honey


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around now
You make a right hand star and turn it round and now
The heads star left, roll it around to the corner girl
Touch 1/4 then you scoot back, boys you fold
Girls right arm turn thru, star thru and promenade around you do
*Hey bird dog get away from my quail
Hey bird dog you're on the wrong trail


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Hey bird dog, get away from my chick
Hey bird dog, better get away quick


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle to the left
Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
Sings the sweetest love song (like a bird)

The men star right and ya "hurry, hurry"
Allemande the corner, weave that ring
But when he sings to my gal (he's a dog)
Swing your honey round and promenade her pal
Jokin' ain't so funny (he's a bird dog)
Johnny is a joker tryin' to steal my honey

Bird Dog
 
 

Johnny is a joker (he's a bird)
A very funny joker (he's a bird)
But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog)
His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
Johnny is a joker that's a-tryin' to steal my baby (he's a bird dog)

Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
He sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me he's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he's a bird dog)

Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog, get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog, you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own

Johnny kissed the teacher (he's a bird)
He tiptoed up to reach her (he's a bird)
Well he's the teacher's pet now (he's a dog)
What he wants he can get now (what a dog)
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he's a bird dog)

Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own

He's a bird

Lyrics by Boudleaux Bryant.
Recorded by The Everly Brothers.
