Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade one time around
Gonna get along home, swing your man
Join your hands and circle to the left around the ring
Allemande with the corner girl, weave around the ring
Wind in and out around and when you meet that maid
Swing and whirl and promenade
You promenade along take a walk to old Hong Kong
In dreamy Chinatown


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Here's where the heads (sides) square thru 4 hands you go
Get around that corner, dosado
You swing thru, boys trade, hinge, boys run to the right
Everybody square thru 3, oh, oh
3 hands around and the corner swing
Left allemande and promenade
You promenade the ring, take a walk to old Bay Ping
In dreamy Chinatown


OPENER - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)   

Allemande that corner, swing your own
Heads square thru go full around
Face the sides, split that couple around one you go
Star by the right out in the middle and to the corner go
Allemande the corner, weave that old ring
And when you meet do a dosado, promenade
Promenade that ring way on back to old Mei-ping
In dreamy Chinatown


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, no progression

One and three (2 & 4) half sashay - go forward up and back
Well, box the gnat, right & left thru on down
Centers half sashay, pass thru
Go around one into the middle and star thru
Outfacers courtesy turn, allemande left, face in
Sides right and left thru, swing the corner, promenade
Promenade you can't go wrong, right on back
To old Hong Kong, in dreamy Chinatown


MIDDLE BREAK (ALTERNATE)    Basic

Allemande that corner, dosado your own
Swing your girl from Singapore, 4 little ladies promenade
Around that ring you go, dosado your lady fair
Allemande left, way over there
Weave that old ring, and when you meet, you promenade
Promenade walk down the street
Oh, my, she is mighty sweet in dreamy Chinatown

Chinatown Lyrics ID: 739

Chinatown, my Chinatown,
Where the lights are low.
Hearts that know no other land,
Drifting to and fro.

Dreamy, dreamy Chinatown--
Almond eyes of brown.
Hearts are light and life seems bright
In dreamy Chinatown.

Composed by Jean Schwartz.
Lyrics by William Jerome.
