Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain the ring, turn that lady go round
Roll that lady a half sashay, circle left go round
Four little ladies gonna roll away, circle left and then
Allemande left the corner and you weave the ring
What's the use of worrying?
Swing that girl, the pretty little girl, then you promenade
Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and
Smile, smile, smile


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle, let's go
Dosado the corner girl
Look her in the eyes, touch 1/4
Follow your neighbor go ahead and spread
Swing thru, the boys trade, the corner lady swing
Swing the girl, the pretty little girl, then you promenade
Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and
Smile, smile, smile


TAG

Smile, smile, smile

Pack Up Your Troubles
 
 

Private Perks is a funny little codger
With a smile, a funny smile.
Five feet none, he's an artful little dodger
With a smile, a funny smile.
Flush or broke he'll have his little joke,
He can't be suppress'd.
All the other fellows have to grin
When he gets this off his chest, Hi!

Chorus (sung twice after each verse):
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile,
While you've a Lucifer to light your fag,
Smile, boys, that's the style.
What's the use of worrying?
It never was worthwhile, so
Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

Private Perks went a-marching into Flanders
With his smile, his funny smile.
He was lov'd by the privates and commanders
For his smile, his funny smile.
When a throng of Bosches came along
With a mighty swing,
Perks yell'd out, "This little bunch is mine!
Keep your heads down, boys and sing, Hi!"

Private Perks he came back from Bosche-shooting
With his smile, his funny smile.
Round his home he then set about recruiting
With his smile, his funny smile.
He told all his pals, the short, the tall,
What a time he'd had;
And as each enlisted like a man
Private Perks said 'Now my lad,' Hi!

Composed by Felix Powell.
Lyrics by George Asaf.
Recorded by Murray Johnson (1916).
