Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream, unknown progression

Sides face, grand square
Christmas Eve is here, and we go off to bed
As we climb the stairs and nod our sleepy heads
Take our stockings off, hang them in a row
Then jump quickly into bed

4 ladies chain you know
Chain the ladies over, you turn and chain them back
Now turn the girl with the rosy cheeks and promenade the track
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Hurrah for dear old Santa Claus, hurrah for Christmas Day


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads right & left thru, you turn your little girl
And then 1/2 square thru, now touch 1/4 friend
Split circulate and now scoot back, put the ladies in
Do a walk & dodge and then, do a partner trade my friend
Square thru 3 hands and the corner lady swing
Swing Merry Christmas now, promenade the ring
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse sleigh tonight


ALTERNATE LYRICS (AUSTRALIANA)

Dashing through the bush in a rust holden ute
Kicking up the dust, esky in the boot
Kelpie by my side, singing Christmas songs
It's summertime and I am in my singlet, shorts and thongs


(Ute - utility pickup truck; esky - portable ice box; boot - trunk;
kelpie - dog; thongs - rubber sandals)


ALTERNATE LYRICS

Rust and smoke, the heater broke, the door just blew away
You light a match to see the dash, then you start to pray
The frame is bent, the muffler went, the radio it's okay
Oh what fun it is to drive my rusty Chevrolet

Jingle Bells
 
 

Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring, making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

A day or two ago, I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright, was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank, misfortune seemed his lot;
We ran into a drifted bank and there we got upsot

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

In a one-horse open sleigh

Lyrics by James S. Pierpont.
Recorded by Edison Male Quartet (1898).
