Cue Sheet


Allemande left, the girls star right, gents you promenade (same girl)
Allemande left, the gents star right, girls you promenade (same lady)
Left allemande, grand right & left go round the ring
Grand right & left, go round the set, meet your partner, box the gnat
Then pull her by, left allemande, come back a dosado
Same little girl you promenade
You're not handsome it's true, but when she looks at you
She's singing oh, Johnny, oh, Johnny, oh!

FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Head 2 couples forward, come on back, opposite dosado
Go full around and square thru 3/4 round you go
3/4 round and separate, round 1 and line up 4
Go forward 8 and come on back, pass thru and all turn left
It's single file around, gents turn back, dixie grand
Go right, left, right, you corner swing and promenade
You're not handsome it's true, but when she looks at you
She's singing oh, Johnny, oh, Johnny, oh!

Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh!

Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny!
How you can love!
Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny!
Heavens above!
You make my sad heart jump with joy,
And when you're near I just
Can't sit still a minute.
I'm so, Oh, Johnny! Oh, Johnny!
Please tell me dear.
What makes me love you so?
You're not handsome, it's true,
But whan I look at you,
I just, Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny! Oh!

Lyrics by Abe Olman and Ed Rose.
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald.
