Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know the gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down on 34th and Vine

Allemande left your corner, you weave around in time
* I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I've been that way since 1986

Swing your little girl and you promenade around
Selling little bottles of "Love Potion Number ..."


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in sight


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade take it halfway go round
Down the middle square thru four hands around
Go all the and then you do the right & left thru
Veer to the left and couples circulate you do
Half tag, scoot back, your corner you swing
Swing that girl round and round and promenade that ring
But when I kissed a cop down on 34th and Vine
He broke my little bottle of "Love Potion Number ..."

Love Potion #9 Lyrics ID: 149

I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Sellin' little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine

I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I've been this way since 1956
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said "What you need is Love Potion Number Nine"

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like Indian ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine

Lyrics by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
Recorded by The Searchers; The Clovers.
