Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade inside the ring
Get back and swing your man, everybody swing
Join hands and circle left go round that hall
Left allemande and weave the ring
I told her that I was a flop with chicks
Swing that girl and promenade the ring
But when I kissed a cop, down on 34th and vine
He broke my little bottle of love potion Number Nine


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples promenade go halfway around
Walk in and square thru, go 4 hands around
Go to the outsides, a right & left thru
You veer to the left and ferris wheel in the middle and go
Walk in and square thru 3 hands around
Swing that corner girl and promenade
But when I kissed a cop, down on 34th and vine
He broke my little bottle of love potion Number Nine

Love Potion #9
 
 

I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
Sellin' little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine

I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I've been this way since 1956
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said "What you need is Love Potion Number Nine"

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like turpentine, it looked like Indian ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine

I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine
He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine
Love Potion Number Nine

Lyrics by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
Recorded by The Searchers; The Clovers.
