Cue Sheet


Circle to the left
Seventy-six trombones led the big parade
With a hundred and ten cornets close at hand

Men star right one time, find the corner girl
Left allemande this lady, then box the gnat at home
Four ladies promenade one time inside the set
Swing this handsome man, then you all promenade
Well I modestly took my place as the one and only bass
And I oom-pah, oom-pah, oom-pah-pah'ed the square

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads pass thru and do a partner trade for me
Then you touch 1/4, let the boys run right
Swing thru and then you all swing thru again
When you finish all 8 circulate one place
Single hinge and then scoot back right there
This corner lady swing and promenade the ring
Promenade around the ring, take that lady home I sing
While seventy-six trombones play the square

Seventy-Six Trombones

Seventy-six trombones led the big parade
With a hundred and ten cornets close at hand
They were followed by rows and rows of the finest virtuosos
The cream of ev'ry famous band

Seventy-six trombones caught the morning sun
With a hundred and ten cornets right behind
There were more than a thousand reeds
Springing up like weeds
There were horns of ev'ry shape and kind

There were copper bottom tympani in horse platoons
Thundering, thundering all along the way
Double bell euphoniums and big bassoons
Each bassoon having it's big, fat say

There were fifty mounted cannons in the battery
Thundering, thundering louder than before
Clarinets of ev'ry size and trumpeters who'd improvise
A full octave higher than the score

Lyrics by Meredith Willson.
Recorded by Robert Preston.
