Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Mr. Santa bring me some toys
Bring Merry Christmas to all girls and boys
And every night I'll go to sleep singing
And dream about the presents you'll be bringing

Four ladies chain you turn 'em there
You chain 'em back and promenade the square
**I'll be good, just as good as can be
Mr. Santa don't forget me


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    C4, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands and go
Get around the corner with a dosado
Star thru, reverse dixie style to a wave
Ferris recycle, come into the middle and then
The centers pass thru, touch 1/4, scoot back and go
Swing the corner, promenade on home
I'll be good, just as good as can be
Mr. Santa don't forget me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Mr. Santa dear ole St. Nick
Be awful careful and don't get sick
Put on your coat when breezes are blowin'
And when you cross the street, look where you're goin'


**Take your time when you unpack
Mr. Santa don't hurt your back


*Mr. Santa, we've been so good
We've done the dishes and done what we should
Made up the bed and scrubbed our toe-sies
And used a hanky when we've blown our nose-sies


**Now I've put you on the spot
Mister Santa, bring me a lot


MIDDLE BREAK (ALTERNATE)    Basic

Four ladies chain, you turn 'em and then
Join hands circle left my friend
Four ladies roll away circle left and go
Four ladies roll away circle left you know
Do a left allemande come home a dosado
Left allemande then promenade on home
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman bring me a dream


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads square thru, four hands and go
Go around the corner with a dosado
Swing thru and then the boys run right now
You bend the line then right and left thru somehow
Flutter wheel straight across and then
Slide thru, swing and promenade again
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman bring me a dream

Mr. Sandman Lyrics ID: 257

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung..........)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give him two lips like roses and clover (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung...)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung)

Mr. Sandman (male voice: "Yesss?") bring us a dream
Give him a pair of eyes with a "come-hither" gleam
Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace
Mr Sandman, someone to hold (someone to hold)
Would be so peachy before we're too old
So please turn on your magic beam
Mr Sandman, bring us, please, please, please
Mr Sandman, bring us a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung".)

Lyrics by Pat Ballard.
Recorded by The Chordettes.
