Cue Sheet


Hey join hands and circle to the left around you do
Allemande the corner, that partner dosado
4 boys star left 3/4 then
Box the gnat and change hands, left allemande
Grand right & left around, hey when you meet your maid
Dosado and then we'll all promenade
Why can't you be like we were, perfect in every way
Hey what's the matter with kids today?

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Why don't those heads square thru and count 'em 4 hands you go
YOu gonna right & left thru now and turn the girl you know
Star thru and pass thru, California twirl
Square thru 3 hands, allemande that corner girl
Dosado around the partner you know
Go swing the corner lady, let's promeno
Why can't you be like we were, perfect in every way
Hey what's the matter with kids today?

I don't know what's wrong with these kids today!
Who can understand anything they say?
They are disobedient, disrespectful oafs!
Noisy, crazy, dirty, lazy, loafers!
While we're on the subject:
You can talk and talk till your face is blue!
But they still just do what they want to do!
Why can't they be like we were,
Perfect in every way?
What's the matter with kids today?
I've tried to raise him the best I could
Kids! Kids!
Laughing, singing, dancing, grinning, morons!
And while we're on the subject:
Kids! They are just impossible to control!
Kids! With their awful clothes and their rock an' roll!
Why can't they dance like we did
What's wrong with Sammy Caine?
What's the matter with kids today!

Composed by Charles Strouse.
