Cue Sheet


Join your hands, form a ring, circle left and hear me sing
Allemande left and then, go forward 2 with a right & left full turn
4 ladies star across the land, that's corner girl left allemande
Grand right & left go round, just walk and rock around the town
When you meet her dosado, catch her left dopaso
Partner left, corner lady right hand round
Partner left roll promenade, take a walk there with your maid
And you'll never part, 'cause she doesn't have a wooden heart


Ladies center back to the bar, gents star left from where you are
Go all the way around, then pick up your partner with an arm around
Stretch the star across the night, *frontier whirl the girls star right
Gents backtrack around the world, twice around then star in behind your girl
Turn the star around the land, girl roll back, left allemande
Pass your own and swing the next one round and round
Promenade and treat her good, treat her like you really should
'Cause she's not made of wood, and she doesn't have a wooden heart

(*Note: when girls star right, men will walk momentarily with her until told to backtrack.)

Wooden Heart

Can't you see I love you
Please don't break my heart in two
That's not hard to do
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
And if you say goodbye
Then I know that I would cry
Maybe I would die
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Treat me nice
Treat me good
Treat me like you really should
'Cause I'm not made of wood
And I don't have a wooden heart

Muss i denn, muss i denn
Zum Städtele hinaus
Städtele hinaus
Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier?

There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Sei mir gut
Sei mir gut
Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst
Wie du wirklich sollst
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

Lyrics by Berthold Kaempfert, Kay Twomey, Fred Wise and Ben Weisman.
Recorded by Theodore Pusinelli and Hackert (1901); Elvis Presley (1960).
Muß i' denn zum Städtele hinaus
