Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join your hands and make a ring, circle left you know
Move it all the way around until you get back home
Allemande left your corner girl, dosado your own
Men star by the old left hand, and turn it once around
Dosado go round your own, then do an old left allemande
Come home and swing your lady and then promenade the land
Oh the line forms on the right, girls
Now that Mack is back in town


FIGURE   

Head 2 couples square thru about 4 hands you sail
Star by the right with the outside two, roll it down the trail
Heads to the middle, left hand star, one time you know
Turn your corner by the right, partner by the left and go
Back to the corner catch all 8 by the right hand 1/2 way round
Back by the left and keep her, promenade the town
Oh the line forms on the right, girls
Now that Mack is back in town

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER

All around that corner, box the flea at home
Men star right in the center once around you roam
Pick up that 'lil reindeer with arm around and then
Inside out, outside in, reverse that star again
All 4 men U-turn back, twice around you run
Pass her once, then meet again
Box the gnat, keep her son
Promenade this Rudolph
The nose is getting red
And everyone will tell you
He seems to be well fed


ALTERNATE LYRICS

(Closer)
Cause he's your very own
He's gettin' kinda tired
You'd better take him home


FIGURE   

Allemande left the corner, wagon wheel your own
Men star left, gals hook on, roll it right along
Hub backs out go full around, balance out and then
Right, left, right, the second girl, wagon wheel again
Spin that gal and roll that wheel
He's feeling young and gay
Hub backs out and hold your hat, balance out and box the gnat
Box it back with Rudolph, promenade and then
His nose will light the way so
You'll find your home again


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4, around all the way you go
Look for the corner lady, do a dosado
Swing thru, 2 by 2
Boys run to the right
Everybody bend the line
Star thru tonight
Flutter wheel straight across & then you square thru 3
Take that third hand you meet
Swing and promenade for me
Round you go with Rudolph all the way and then
His nose will light the way so
You'll find your home again

Mack The Knife
 
 

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight.

Ya know when that shark bites, with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, though, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red.

Now on the sidewalk, uuh, huh, whoa sunny mornin' uuh, huh
Lies a body just oozin' life... eeek!
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

A-there's a tugboat, huh, huh, huh, down by the river don'tcha know
Where a cement bag's just a'droopin' on down
Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Macky's back in town.

Now, d'ja hear 'bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawin' out all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

Now Jenny Diver, ho, ho, yeah, Sukey Tawdry
Ooh Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town.

Aah, I said Jenny Diver, whoa, Sukey Tawdry
Look out to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town

Look out, old MacHeath is back!!

Composed by Kurt Weill.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
 
 

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixon
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
You would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say:
"Hey, Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee:
"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
You'll go down in history!"

Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say:
"Hey, Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee:
"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
You'll go down in history!"

"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
You'll go down in history!"...

Lyrics by Johnny Marks.
