Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Want some whiskey in your water?
Sugar in your tea?
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights

Allemande left, c'mon let's weave
Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
That ain't the way to have fun, no


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway **let some air into this room
Square thru four hands **from the smell of stale perfume
Right & left thru the outside two (about scared me half to death)
Veer to the left, ferris wheel (let me catch my breath)
C'mon square thru to three
Swing that corner, promenade
That ain't the way to have fun, son
(That ain't the way to have fun, no)


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**Someone's knockin' at the door

**Before she's passed out on the floor


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four girls promenade, getta walk-walk-walkin' around that ring
Back home to your man and swing, everybody gonna swing
Join hands, circle to the left around you all
Allemande left your corner, c'mon weave this hall!
Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
That ain't the way to have fun, no


TAG

Allemande left your corner
Swing your partner
Then bow to your corner
Partner, too
Mama told me not to come

Mama Told Me (Not To Come) Lyrics ID: 3571

Want some whiskey in your water?
Sugar in your tea?
What's all these crazy questions they're askin' me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don't turn on the lights 'cause I don't wanna see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
"That ain't the way to have fun, no"

Open up the window, let some air into this room
I think I'm almost chokin' from the smell of stale perfume
And that cigarette you're smokin' 'bout scare me half to death
Open up the window, sucker, let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

The radio is blastin', someone's knockin' at the door
I'm lookin' at my girlfriend - she's passed out on the floor
I seen so many things I ain't never seen before
Don't know what it is - I don't wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said, "That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, no"

(Mama told me, mama told me, mama told me, told me, told me
Mama told me not to come, whoa yeah!)

"That ain't the way to have fun, no"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, no" (look it, here)
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

"That ain't the way to have fun, no"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"
"That ain't the way to have fun, no"
"That ain't the way to have fun, son"

Lyrics by Randy Newman.
Recorded by Eric Burdon & The Animals; Randy Newman; Three Dog Night; others.
