Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Gather round and I will tell a story of the Christmas Bell
Who fell and broke his harmony, and he began to

Allemande left and weave for me
Everyone knows Ding-a-Ling
Swing your girl, promenade the ring
**He doesn't hear his notes too well
Ding-a-Ling the Christmas Bell


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*When Christmas eve came to the town
A blinding snow was falling down
Ding-a-Ling heard someone say
Old Santa's sure to

Allemande left and weave that way

*It occurred to Ding-a-Ling
To ring as loud as he could ring
And when Old Santa heard the sound
He followed it

Allemande left and weave to town

**Everything has turned out well
For Ding-a-Ling the Christmas Bell


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands you know
With the corner dosado
Touch 1/4, split circulate
Swing thru two by two, centers trade
Walk & dodge, now boys you fold
Swing Ding-a-Ling, promenade her home
The saddest bell you've ever seen
The Christmas Bell called Ding-a-Ling
