Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain turn 'em and then
Chain 'em right back and we'll turn 'em again
Walk all around your corner, and see saw your pet
Left allemande the corner, now weave round the set
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheree
Dosado your baby, promenade for me
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheroo
Good luck will be yours when she's swinging with you


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads pass thru, go round two like that
Hook on the ends, go forward up and back
Star thru, centers square thru 3 hands round
Centers in, cast off 3/4 round
Star thru, centers square thru 3 hands more
Swing with the corner, promenade the floor
Chim chiminey, chim chiminey, chim chim cheroo
Good luck will be yours when she's swinging with you

Chim Chim Cheree
 
 

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck will rub off when
I shake 'ands with you
Or blow me a kiss
And that's lucky too

Now as the ladder of life
'As been strung
You may think a sweep's
On the bottom-most rung

Though I spends me time
In the ashes and soot
In this 'ole wide world
There's no 'appier bloke

Up where the smoke is
All billered and curled
'Tween pavement and stars
Is the chimney sweep world

When there's 'ardly no day
Nor 'ardly no night
There's things 'alf in shadow
And 'alf way in light
On the roof tops of London
Coo, what a sight!

I choose me bristles with pride
Yes, I do
A broom for the shaft
And a brush for the flue

Though I'm covered with soot
From me 'ead to me toes
A sweep knows 'e's welcome
Wherever 'e goes

Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
When you're with a sweep
You're in glad company

No where is there
A more 'appier crew
Than them wot sings
"Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!"
On the chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee
Chim cher-oo!

Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.
Recorded by Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.
