Cue Sheet


Join your hands & you circle around
Reverse back single file round that town
4 ladies backtrack once around you go
Box the gnat, pull her by, left allemande
Weave that ring in & out you will roam
When you meet, promenade home
Promenade home with your honey
Singing no no Nora, no no

FIGURE    C4, R-H lady progression

4 ladies chain, you turn them & then
Those heads (sides) promenade halfway, halfway my friend
Into the middle and star thru, California twirl
Slide thru, barge thru* and then you'll
Swing your corner go round and round
Left allemande, you promenade that town
Promenade home with your honey
Singing no no Nora, no no

*Barge Thru: From Facing Lines. 1/2 Square Thru; Trade By.
Ends in an Eight Chain Thru formation.

No, No Nora Lyrics ID: 1851

In the apartment above me there is the lovingest pair
I don't know what she has to be jealous of
He has a face that just a mother could love
And still I know she's always worried
Some girl will steal her prize away
She's always asking "Is there somebody else?"
I guess it's just to hear him say

No, no, Nora, nobody but you dear.
You know, Nora, yours truly is true, dear.
When you accuse me of flirting
I wouldn't, I couldn't, I love you so
Now I have chances too many to mention
Never give 'em a bit of attention
And would I trade you for Venus?
No, no, Nora, no, no!

She has a lot of detectives who check him up ev'ry day
She's read about those men who lead double lives
She's making sure she won't be 'one of those wives'
She thinks he looks like Douglas Fairbanks
Altho' he has Ben Turpin's eyes
A hundred times a day she calls on the phone
And ev'ry time she does he sighs

No, no, Nora, nobody but you dear.
You know, Nora, that I stick like glue, dear.
And when you're speaking of Sheiking
I wouldn't, I couldn't, I love you so
I see eyes that are full of affection
But I look in the other direction
And do I care for the Follies?
No, no, Nora, no, no!

Composed by Ted Fiorito & Ernie Erdman.
Lyrics by Gus Kahn.
