Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join 8 hands, circle left go round that track
Left allemande, partner right, box the gnat
4 ladies walk the inside ring, once around
now hear me sing
Box the gnat, check in, weave the ring
It's the bird of paradise who really knows
Dosado, take her hand and promeno
*Does the lady like romancin', is she with you just for dancin'?
It's the bird of paradise who really knows


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

1 & 3 lead to the right, circle 4
You make a line, dance up and back once more
Star thru in front of you, dive thru, pass thru
Right & left thru, turn the girl, eight chain 3
It's right, left, right, left allemande
Weave by one, swing the next there, when you can
*Promenade go round the ring, will the lady let you swing
It's the bird of paradise who really knows


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Promenade, don't you linger, will the lady let you swing her?

*Promenade, are you wise? Will she flirt with other guys?

*Take a walk, go round the square, will she let you swing her there?

*Promenade by 2 by 2, will she let you swing her too?

*Promenade, go round the square, does the lady really care?

May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose
 
 

One fine day as I was walkin' down the street
Met a beggar man with rags upon his feet
Took a penny from my pocket,
In his tin cup I did drop it
And I heard him say as I made my retreat.

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.

I was way behind one day to catch a train
Taxi driver, "said we'll make it just the same"
But a speed cop made it with us,
And as he wrote out the ticket
I stood by politely waitin' for my change.

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.

Well, my laundry man is really on his toes
Found a hundred dollar bill among my clothes
When he called me, I came runnin',
Gave him back his dime for phonin'
And I heard him sayin' as I turned to go.

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose.

Lyrics by Neal Merritt.
Recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens.
