Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Walk all around your corner, then see saw your taw
Join hands and circle left, go walkin' round the hall
Left allemande that corner, then weave around the track
Go in and out until you meet, your partner box the gnat
Girls star left about one time, once around, you're doing fine
Dosado around your man, the corners all left allemande
You promenade your baby, round the ring with you
And don't tell me I've nothing to do


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head 2 couples promenade halfway round you know
Into the middle with a dosado, it's back to back you go
Go right & left thru and turn the lady, square thru you do
Go 4 hands around the ring, now do an eight chain thru
Oh, those flowers on the wall, they don't bother me at all
Count 8 hands across the ring, meet the corner girl and swing
You promenade that lady, round the ring with you
And 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.
