OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

1 & 3 (2 & 4) you promenade just half around and maybe
Down the middle, right & left thru, turn that pretty lady
Star thru and then, square thru 3 hands now
Find ole corner, go left allemande, weave the ring
Go in and out around, now you dosado that lady
Left allemande, come on back you promenade now
Polka dots and moonbeams all around your baby
All around your pug-nosed dream


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

4 little ladies chain about 3/4 around and maybe
Turn and chain the girls straight across the big ole floor now
Heads (sides) go right and circle 4 and make a line there
Forward up and come on back and then, curlique
Boys run to the right, trade by and maybe
Swing the corner lady, now you go left allemande there
Come on back and promenade
Polka dots and moonbeams all around a pug-nosed dream


SEQUENCE (opener, figure twice heads, break, figure twice sides, closer)

Polka Dots And Moonbeams
 
 

A country dance was being held in a garden
I felt a bump and heard an "Oh, beg your pardon"
Suddenly I saw polka dots and moonbeams
All around a pug-nosed dream

The music started and was I the perplexed one
I held my breath and said "May I have the next one"
In my frightened arms, polka dots and moonbeams
Sparkled on a pug-nosed dream

There were questions in the eyes of other dancers
As we floated over the floor
There were questions, but my heart knew all the answers
And perhaps a few things more

Now in a cottage made of lilacs and laughter
I know the meaning of the words "ever after"
And I'll always see polka dots and moonbeams
When I kiss my pug-nosed dream

Composed by Jimmy van Heusen.
Lyrics by Johnny Burke.
Recorded by Count Basie.
