Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, corner progression

4 ladies chain you do, turn the girl and you're not through
Dosado the corners all, seesaw your pretty little taw
4 men star by the right, 3/4 round the land
Allemande left your corner, and do a right & left grand
Oh, I'm Henry the Eighth I am, Henry the Eighth I am, I am
Dosado your pretty little girl, same girl you promenade
Her eighth old man is a Henry, she never had a Willie or a Sam
I'm her eighth old man named Henry, Henry the eighth I am


FIGURE    A1, unknown progression

Side ladies chain you do, head two couples star thru
Same two California twirl, circle four on the side of the world
Head men break to a line of four, go up to the middle & back
Cross trail, left allemande, and weave around the track
Oh, I'm Henry the Eighth I am, Henry the Eighth I am, I am
Dosado with the widow next door, get your corner, promenade
Her eighth old man was Henry, she never had a Willie or a Sam
I'm her eighth old man named Henry, it's Henry the eighth I am

Henry The Eighth
 
 

I'm Henry the eighth I am
Henry the eighth I am, I am
I got married to the widow next door
She's been married seven times before
And every one was an Henry (Henry)
She wouldn't have a Willy or a Sam (no Sam)
I'm her eighth old man, I'm Henry
Henry the eighth I am

Second verse same as the first

I'm Henry the eighth I am
Henry the eighth I am, I am
I got married to the widow next door
She's been married seven times before
And every one was an Henry (Henry)
She wouldn't have a Willy or a Sam (no Sam)
I'm her eighth old man, I'm Henry
Henry the eighth I am

I'm Henry the eighth I am
Henry the eighth I am, I am
I got married to the widow next door
She's been married seven times before
And every one was an Henry (Henry)
She wouldn't have a Willy or a Sam (no Sam)
I'm her eighth old man, I'm Henry
Henry the eighth I am

H-E-N-R-Y
Henry (Henry)
Henry (Henry)
Henry the eighth I am, I am
Henry the eighth I am

Yeah!

Lyrics by Murray and Weston.
Recorded by Herman's Hermits.
 

Comments

Caution callers: The break looks and sounds easy but it can be quite a challenge for the men to star right 3/4
