Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Well 4 little ladies promenade, go walkin' round awhile
Gents step in behind your girl, go walkin' single file
Girls step out and backtrack, meet a partner, box the gnat
Pull her by, left allemande, then weave around that track
Countin' flowers on the wall, doesn't bother me at all
Dosado, then you promenade that hall
You promenade this girl around, go walkin' 2 by 2
Well don't tell me, I've nothin' to do


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 you square thru go all the way around that way
Meet the sides, dosado, go full around I say
You swing thru you do, men trade & box the gnat
Pull her by, left allemande, then weave around that track
Playin' solitaire till dawn, with a deck of 51
Dosado, then you promenade there son
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
Well don't tell me, I've nothin' to do


(SEQUENCE: Opener, figure heads twice, break, figure sides twice, closer)

Flowers On The Wall
 
 

I keep hearing you're concerned about my happiness
But all that thought you're giving me is conscience, I guess
If I were walking in your shoes I wouldn't worry none
While you and your friends are worrying 'bout me, I'm having lots of fun

Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
So don't tell me I've nothing to do

Last night I dressed in tails pretended I was on the town
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this swinger down
So please don't give a thought to me I'm really doing fine
You can always find me here and having quite a time

Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
So don't tell me I've nothing to do

It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
Anyway my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete

Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
So don't tell me I've nothing to do

Lyrics by Lew DeWitt.
Recorded by The Statler Brothers.
