Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Our fathers fought the war then came home to our moms
They gave them so much love that all us kids were born
We all grew up on Mickey Mouse and hula hoops
Then we all bought BMWs and new pickup trucks

Four ladies chain straight across the ring
You turn the girl and chain them home again
Promenade, kids of the baby boom


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads pass thru and do a partner trade
Square thru 4 hands go with your maid
Swing thru, boys run right, do a ferris wheel
Centers veer left, centers cross fire, do a walk & dodge
Swing that corner, promenade the ring
Remember the first man on the moon
Kids of the baby boom


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Walk around that corner, turn the partner left
Head ladies center, teacup chain around the set
(16 beats of music or fill with patter cues)
Baby boom, we got freedom we got money
Baby boom, promenade your honey
*Our optimism mingles with the doom
*Kids of the baby boom


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*A generation screaming for more room
*Kids of the baby boom


*We watched John Kennedy die one afternoon
*Kids of the baby boom


TAG

Swing her nice and easy
Baby boom
