Cue Sheet

OPENER    C4

Heads to the middle with a grand parade
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel and one in the park as well
The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples square thru it's 4 hands you go now
Meet with your corner, swing thru in time
Boys trade and the boys run, bend the line and then
Square thru 3/4, keep in time
Allemande left, dosado the partner
Swing the corner girl and promenade
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door


MIDDLE BREAK   

Circle to the left
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the bells will chime

Walk all around the corner, see saw your own
Men star by the right just one time
Find the corner, allemande left, come home and swing
Swing your girl and promenade
And the thing that will make them ring, is the carol that you'll sing
Right within your heart


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
Take a look in the Five & Ten, listen and once again
With candy canes and silver lanes a-glow

Circle left
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Allemande left your corner, swing and promenade
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
 
 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go.
Take a look in the five and ten, glistening once again.
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store,
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

A pair of Hop-a-long boots and a pistol that shoots
Are the wish of Barney and Ben.
Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen.
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go.
There's a tree in the grand hotel, one in the park as well,
The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the bells will start.
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.

Lyrics by Meredith Willson.
Recorded by Perry Como and The Fontane Sisters; Bing Crosby; many others.
