Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Everybody holds their breath
As he passes by the horns of death

Left allemande, allemande thar
Go forward two right and left and make that star
Swing in men, slip the clutch, pass one, left allemande
Weave the ring in and out and then you'll promenade
She'll throw that scarlet rose she wore to the matador


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**When the scarlet cape begins its sweep
The crowd jumps to their feet


***When he leave the ring they cheer
Sombreros fly through the air


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads pass thru partner trade
Reverse the flutter wheel, sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru, swing thru the outside two, boys run right
Couples circulate and wheel and deal
Dive thru and square thru 3
Swing that corner and promenade for me
She'll throw that scarlet rose she wore, to the matador

The Matador
 
 

Everybody holds their breath
As he passes by the horns of death
And the crowd jumps to its feet and roars
For the matador

With the scarlet cape against his hips
And 'Hey Toro' whispered from his lips
And inside my heart is beating for
The matador

Tonight we'll meet beneath the silver stars
Dance to mandolins and soft guitars
I dream I give my love once more
To the matador
To the matador

As I watch his body turn and twist
He doesn't know that I exist
Though I've shared so many dreams before
With the matador

Tonight we'll meet beneath the silver stars
Dance to mandolins and soft guitars
I dream I give my love once more
To the matador
To the matador

And as he leaves the ring they cheer
Sombreros fly into the air
And I throw the crimson rose I wore
To the matador

La-la la-la la-la la-la
La-la la-la la-la la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la la-la la-la-la,
La-la la-la la-la-la,

Lyrics by Sylvia Jane Kirby.
Recorded by Sylvia.
