Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
She leaves home at 8, a little bit late
A little bit tired of it all

Allemande left that corner girl, come back a dosado
4 ladies promenade inside you know
Well home you go, a dosado, it's one time around
Left allemande, come back and promenade
And there bright and early Monday morning secretary
You sure do look pretty today


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Those heads (sides) square thru, 4 hands around will do
Around the corner lady, dosado
You touch 1/4 and then, walk and dodge my friend
Do a partner trade and then a right and left thru
You flutter wheel, go full around and then slide thru
Swing the corner girl and promenade
And there bright and early Monday morning secretary
You sure do look pretty today


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
She opens up the door and does so much more
Than what she gets credit for

Allemande left that corner girl, come back a dosado
4 ladies promenade inside you know
Well home you go, a dosado, it's one time around
Left allemande, come back and promenade
And there bright and early Monday morning secretary
You sure do look pretty today


CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle left
At 10 there's a break, she don't always take
Just time for a powder and smoke

Allemande left that corner girl, come back a dosado
4 ladies promenade inside you know
Well home you go, a dosado, it's one time around
Left allemande, come back and promenade
And there bright and early Monday morning secretary
You sure do look pretty today


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Heads square thru, right hand star
Star left in the center, right and left thru
Rollaway, pass thru, u turn back
Swing, promenade
And there bright and early Monday morning secretary
You sure do look pretty today

Monday Morning Secretary Lyrics ID: 1696

She leaves home at eight, a little bit late
A little bit tired of it all
She unlocks the doors and does so much more
Than what she gets credit for
She opens the mail, straightens up without fail
Last Friday evening's mess
She makes brand new coffee though her head's hurtin' awful
By nine she's looking her best

And Monday comes dawning
The world wakes up yawning
And Friday seems so far away
But there bright and early
Monday morning secretary
You sure do look pretty today

At ten there's a break she don't always take
Just time for a powder and smoke
A salesman comes in, looks her over end to end
And tells her a new dirty joke
She laughs off his pass like she's done in the past
She knows all those lines so well
Then at five she goes home to her cat and two rooms
And cries cause she's lonely as hell

And Monday comes dawning
The world wakes up yawning
And Friday seems so far away
But there bright and early
Monday morning secretary
You sure do look pretty today

You sure do look pretty today

Lyrics by Don Reid.
Recorded by The Statler Brothers.
