Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make her the cutest that I've ever seen
Give her two lips like roses in clover
And tell me that my lonely nights are over

4 ladies chain across
Chain 'em back and you promenade around then
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Sandman, I'm so alone
Ain't got nobody to call my own
Give her two lips like roses in clover
And tell me that my lonely nights are over


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, 4 hands around
To the corner lady now you dosado
Swing thru, boys you trade
Cast off 3/4, girl run right and then
Star thru, California twirl
Swing that corner lady, promenade 'round the world
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream

Mr. Sandman
 
 

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung..........)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give him two lips like roses and clover (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung...)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung)

Mr. Sandman (male voice: "Yesss?") bring us a dream
Give him a pair of eyes with a "come-hither" gleam
Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace
Mr Sandman, someone to hold (someone to hold)
Would be so peachy before we're too old
So please turn on your magic beam
Mr Sandman, bring us, please, please, please
Mr Sandman, bring us a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung".)

Lyrics by Pat Ballard.
Recorded by The Chordettes.
