Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Dosado your corner, then go home and swing your own
Just swing a long...long...time
Allemande left the corner, and around the ring you go
Ya got a long...long...time
Right hand swing your gal, go twice around her
Walk around your corner when you've found her
Go back and promenade your dear and sweet talk in her ear
It's been a long...long...time


FIGURE   

Number 1 you promenade, now 2 wheel in behind
And then it's 3...and...4
Back right out and join your hands and make a great big ring
4 ladies chain...chain...chain
1 & 3 you right & left across...the ring
The ladies star across and swing your man...again
*Promenade and now's your chance, to whisper of romance
It's been a long...long...time

It's Been A Long, Long Time
 
 

Kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time
Haven't felt like this, my dear
Since I can't remember when
It's been a long, long time

You'll never know how many dreams
I've dreamed about you
Or just how empty they all seemed without you
So kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time

Ah, kiss me once, then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long time
Haven't felt like this my dear
Since I can't remember when
It's been a long, long time

You'll never know how many dreams
I dreamed about you
Or just how empty they all seemed without you
So kiss me once then kiss me twice
Then kiss me once again
It's been a long, long time
Long, long time

Composed by Jule Styne.
Lyrics by Sammy Cahn.
Recorded by Bing Crosby with Les Paul and Harry James.
