4 little ladies gonna promenade one time around Get back home and give that man a swing Join up hands and circle to the left Allemande with the corner of the hall Weave around that ring Blue were the skies and blue were her eyes Swing the little girl and you promenade Come back, blue lady, come back And don't be blue anymore
FIGURE Mainstream, corner progression
Heads (sides) promenade halfway around Come down the middle and square thru 4 Go all the way in the middle of the ring And do the right & left thru Pass thru, trade by, swing thru You spin the top and the boy move up Slide thru and swing and promenade Oh come back, blue lady, come back And don't be blue anymore
Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands All the way and a right & left thru Touch 1/4, follow your neighbor, do NOT spread Left linear cycle Centers square thru 3 hands Swing that girl and promenade Oh come back, blue lady, come back And don't be blue anymore
And don't be blue anymore

I dream of that night with you,
Darling, when we first met.
We danced in a world of blue.
How can my heart forget?
Blue were the skies, and blue were her eyes,
Just like the blue skirt she wore.
Come back, blue lady, come back;
Don't be blue any more.
I wandered alone one night
Till I heard an orchestra play
I wandered where lights were bright
Where people were carefree and gay.
You were the beautiful lady in blue;
I was in heaven just waltzing with you.
Come back, blue lady of mine.
Don't be blue anymore.
