Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Join your hands and form a ring, circle left and shout and sing
Left allemande you know, grand right & left you go
Hand over hand around, meet your honey with a right hand
A full turn, the men star in, girls promenade the wrong way rim
Go twice around, second time you box the gnat
Pull her by, left allemande right after that
Promenade your pretty maid, you're dancing with your lady
Take her home and swing, you'll be
Doing what comes naturally


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

4 ladies chain across the land, turn now with your left hand
Head 2 couples 1/2 square thru, eight chain thru you do
*Folks like us could never fuss with schools and books and learnin'
Still we're happy as can be doing what comes naturally

When you're straight you square thru 3/4 round the land
Do an allemande left your corner, come on back and promenade
*If you saw my pa and ma you'd know they had no learning
Still they raised a family doing what comes naturally


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Uncle Jeb has never read an almanac on drinking
Still he's always on a spree doing what comes naturally

*Sister Sal who's musical has never had a lesson
Still she learned to sing off-key doing what comes naturally

*Uncle Bill lives on a hill with someone he just married
There he is at 93 doing what comes naturally

Doin' What Comes Natur'lly Lyrics ID: 1493

Folks are dumb where I come from
They ain't had any learnin'
Still they're happy as can be
Doin' what comes natur'lly
(Doin' what comes natur'lly)

Folks like us could never fuss
With schools and books and learnin'
Still we've gone from A to Z
Doin' what comes natur'lly
(Doin' what comes natur'lly)

You don't have to know how to read or write
When you're out with a feller in the pale moonlight
You don't have to look in a book to find
What he thinks of the moon and what is on his mind
That comes natur'lly (that comes natur'lly)

My uncle out in Texas
Can't even write his name
He signs his checks with "X's"
But they cash them just the same

If you saw my paw and maw
You'd know they'd had no learnin'
Still they raised a family
Doin' what comes natur'lly
(Doin' what comes natur'lly)

Cousin Jack insured his shack
And now he plays with matches
He'll collect just wait and see
Doin' what comes natur'lly
(Doin' what comes natur'lly)

Sister Sal who's musical
Has never had a lesson
Still she's learned to sing off-key
Doin' what comes natur'lly
(Doin' what comes natur'lly)

You don't have to go to a private school
Not to turn up your bustle to a stubborn mule
You don't have to have a professor's dome
Not to go for the honey when the bee's at home
That comes natur'lly (that comes natur'lly)

My tiny baby brother
Who's never read a book
Knows one sex from the other
All he had to do was look

Grandpaw Bill lives on the hill
With someone he just married
There he is at ninety-three
Doin' what comes natur'lly
(Doin' what comes natur'lly)

Lyrics by Irving Berlin.
Recorded by Ethel Merman.
