Cue Sheet

OPENER    Plus

Head ladies center teacup chain
Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
You'll never get rid of me

Allemande and weave
Me and my shadow...
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru
Touch 1/4 one time
Split circulate, walk & dodge
Partner trade and roll
Swing thru, recycle
Swing the girl, promenade
We're alone but far from blue
We stick together like glue


MIDDLE BREAK    Plus

Head ladies center teacup chain
Me and my shadow...
Strolling down the avenue

Allemande, weave
Me and my shadow...
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue


CLOSER    Plus

Head ladies center teacup chain
Me and my shadow...
Strolling down the avenue

4 boys promenade you go walkin' around
Get back home swing your girl, promenade
We'll wind up at Stringy's, maybe Groucho's, too
Life's gonna be wow, wow, wee
For my shadow and me

Me And My Shadow
 
 

Me and my shadow
Strolling down the avenue
Oh, me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to

And when it's twelve o'clock we climb the stairs
We never knock 'cause nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue

(Instrumental Break)

And when it's twelve o'clock we climb the stairs
We never knock 'cause nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue

(Sinatra/Davis version:)
Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
You'll never get rid of me

Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us.

Me and my shadow
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that flow in a brook
Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza

Me and my shadow
We're closer than smog to all of L.A.
We're closer than Bobby is to J.F.K.
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue

And when it's sleeping time
That's when we rise
We start to swing
Our clocks don't chime
What a surprise
They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy New Year!

Me and my shadow
And now to repeat what I said at the start
They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart
We're alone but far from blue

Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll hit a few late spots, and then a few more
We'll wind up at Jilly's right after Toot's Shore
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!
For my shadow and me!

And while we are swinging, to mention a few
We'll drop in at Danny's, The Little Club too
But wind up at Jilly's, whatever we do
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!
Wow!
For my shadow and me!

Composed by Dave Dreyer and Al Jolson.
Lyrics by Billy Rose.
Recorded by "Whispering" Jack Smith; Perry Como; Frank Sinatra; Sammy Davis, Jr; Dean Martin (1962).
