Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
We took the legs from some old table
We took the arms from some old chair
And for a neck, we used a bottle
And from a horse we took some hair (here we go)

Allemande left your corner girl; a right & left grand around you go
Grand right & left around and when you meet you promenade
I got more loving from that gosh, darn, dummy
Than I ever got from you


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you promenade and travel halfway round
Come down the middle a right & left thru and turn 'em round
You rollaway and then star thru
Dosado all the way, look her in the eye and square thru
3/4 round, trade by and swing
Swing that corner girl around and round and then
You promenade that ring, throw your head right back and sing
"Because, just because"


TAG

Because, just because

Washington And Lee Swing ("The Dummy Song")
 
 

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

Get me some legs
Get me a chair
Ha ha ha, and a bottle too
Get me a horse
Get me some time
And baby when I'm through

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

I get more lovin', from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you
Yeah momma, I get more lovin' from that dummy than I ever got from you

Lyrics by Lew Brown, Billy Rose, and Ray Henderson.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong.
