Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Hey all four ladies (boys) promenade you go walkin' around
Then come back home and swing your own around and 'round we go
Join hands make that ring circle round and then
Allemande the corner of the hall and weave around that ring
Out in the middle of the old dance floor
We're gonna romp and stomp for more

Swing and whirl the pretty girl and promenade along
Saturday night, moon out, we're going to the twist and shout
We're gonna dance the Cajun beat tonight


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well the head two couples promenade go half way around
Down the middle with a right & left thru take a lady home
You pass the ocean then extend
Swing thru again, boys run to the right and now
You ferris wheel come on in and square thru 3
Get out to the corner swing, swing that corner promenade along
Saturday night, moon out, we're going to the twist and shout
We're gonna dance the Cajun beat tonight

Down At The Twist And Shout
 
 

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from Lou'sian' tonight

Well I never have wandered down to New Orleans
Never have drifted down a bayou stream
But I heard that music on the radio
And I swore some day I was gonna go
Down Highway 10 past Lafayette
To Baton Rouge and I won't forget
To send you a card with my regrets
'Cause I'm never gonna come back home

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from Lou'sian' tonight

They got a alligator stew and a crawfish pie
A gulf storm blowin' into town tonight
Livin' on the delta's quite a show
They got hurricane parties every time it blows
But here up north it's a cold, cold rain
And there ain't no cure for my blues today
Except when the paper says: Beausoleil is coming into town
Baby let's go down

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from Lou'sian' tonight

Bring your mama, bring your papa, bring your sister too
They got lots of music and lots of room
When they play you a waltz from 1910
You gonna feel a little bit young again
Well you learned to dance with your rock 'n' roll
You learned to swing with a do-si-do
But you learn to love at the fais-do-do
When you hear a little Jolie Blon'

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet
Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Wanna dance to a band from Lou'sian' tonight
