Cue Sheet


Join up hands and circle to the left around the square
Men only, right hand star, ladies wait right there
Allemande left the corner and you dosado your own
Men star left in the middle of the ring, once around you roam
Star promenade, slip that arm around your maid
Back out a full turn, and then you promenade
We're going to the county fair and everything is fine
With the happy clowns and the merry-go-rounds,
We're gonna have a happy time

FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

4 little ladies chain 3/4 round I say
Turn her nice 'n easy and then you whirlaway
Allemande left go forward 2 and make an allemande thar
Hang on tight, men back up, you've got a right hand star
Shoot that star and box the gnat then pull her by you bet
Swing the lady waitin' there and allemande left
Come on back to promenade and everything is fine
*With the candy canes, pretty little Janes, gonna have a happy time


*With gals that squeal on the ferris wheel,
We're gonna have a happy time
