Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

4 ladies promenade, go walking round awhile
Gents step in behind those girls, walking single file
Girls step out and back track, meet partner, box the gnat
Pull by, left allemande, weave around the ring
Counting flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
Dosado then you promenade that hall
Promenade that lady, walking 2 by 2
Don't tell me I've nothing to do


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 square thru all the way round you go
Meet those sides dosado full around I say
Swing thru you do, boys trade, box the gnat
Pull on by, left allemande, weave around that ring
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51
Dosado then you promenade there, son
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
Don't tell me I've nothing to do

Flowers On The Wall Lyrics ID: 377

I keep hearing you're concerned about my happiness
But all that thought you're giving me is conscience, I guess
If I were walking in your shoes I wouldn't worry none
While you and your friends are worrying 'bout me, I'm having lots of fun

Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
So don't tell me I've nothing to do

Last night I dressed in tails pretended I was on the town
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this swinger down
So please don't give a thought to me I'm really doing fine
You can always find me here and having quite a time

Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
So don't tell me I've nothing to do

It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
Anyway my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete

Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51
Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo
So don't tell me I've nothing to do

Lyrics by Lew DeWitt.
Recorded by The Statler Brothers.
