Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Allemande that corner one, go forward 3 my son
Go right, left, right, box a gnat and pull her by and then
Allemande just once again, go forward 3 my friend
Go right, left, right, box a gnat and pull her by
Allemande that corner, and a grand right eight you go
Meet your girl and promenade
Bei mir bist du schon, I'll try to explain
Bei mir bist du schon means that I love you


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

Heads go up and back, square thru the inside track
4 hands around, split the outside two and line up 4
Forward back like that, with the opposite, box a gnat
You pull her by, left allemande, come home and dosado
Back to the corner, swing and whirl, you swing her round and round
Promenade around the ring
Bei mir bist du schon, I'll try to explain
Bei mir bist du schon means I adore you


TAG

Bei mir bist du schon means that I love you

SEQUENCE (Opener, figure twice for heads, break, figure twice for sides)

Bei Mir Bis Du Schon
 
 

Of all the boys I've known, and I've known some
Until I first met you I was lonesome
And when you came in sight, dear, my heart grew light
And this old world seemed new to me

You're really swell, I have to admit, you
Deserve expressions that really fit you
And so I've wracked my brain, hoping to explain
All the things that you do to me

Bei mir bist du schoen, please let me explain
Bei mir bist du schoen means you're grand
Bei mir bist du schoen, again I'll explain
It means you're the fairest in the land

I could say bella, bella, even say wunderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are
I've tried to explain, bei mir bist du schoen
So kiss me, and say you understand

Bei mir bist du schoen
You've heard it all before, but let me try to explain
Bei mir bist du schoen means that you're grand
Bei mir bist du schoen
Is such an old refrain, and yet I should explain
It means I am begging for your hand

I could say bella, bella, even say wunderbar
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are

I could say bella, bella, even say wunderbar
Each language only helps be tell you how grand you are
I've tried to explain, bei mir bist du schoen
So kiss me, and say that you will understand

Lyrics by Sammy Cahn and Saul Chaplin.
Recorded by Andrews Sisters (1938).
