Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands and circle to the left around you go
Walk around your corner gal and see saw your own
Those men star by the right inside and roll it round the land
Do an allemande left that corner gal,
gonna weave around that ring I said
Hey ma! She's makin' eyes at me
Swing that girl and promenade
Every minute she gets bolder
Now she's leaning on my shoulder
Ma! She's kissing me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Well the 4 little ladies chain gonna turn 'em with an arm around
Heads you promenade and go halfway
Gonna lead to the right and circle up 4 and you'll make a line
Dance in to the middle and come on back, star thru and pass thru
Trade by and pass thru, swing corner maid
Do an allemande left, come back and promenade
Every minute she gets bolder
Now she's leaning on my shoulder
Ma! She's kissing me

Oh, ma! She's swinging me

Ma (He's Making Eyes At Me)
 
 

Ma, he's making eyes at me
Ma, he's awful nice to me
Ma, he's almost breaking my heart
I'm beside him
Mercy! Let his conscience guide him!
Ma, he wants to marry me
Be my honey bee
Every minute he gets bolder
Now he's leaning on my shoulder
Ma, he's kissing me

Little Lily was oh so silly and shy
And all the fellows knew
She wouldn't bill and coo
Every single night some smart fellow would try
To cuddle up to her
But she would cry:

Ma, he's making eyes at me
Ma, he's awful nice to me
Ma, he's almost breaking my heart
If you peek in, can't you see
I'm goin' to weakin'
Ma, he wants to marry me,
Be my honey bee
Ma I'm meeting with resistance
I shall holler for assistance
Ma, he's kissing me

Lily was so good everybody could tell
You'd never see her roam
She'd always stay at home
All the neighbors knew little Lily too well
For when the boys would call
They'd hear her yell:

Ma, he's making eyes at me
Ma, he's awful nice to me
Ma, he's almost breaking my heart
If you peek in, can't you see
I'm goin' to weakin'
Ma, he wants to marry me,
Be my honey bee
Ma I'm meeting with resistance
I shall holler for assistance
Ma, he's kissing me
