Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Four ladies chain go straight across the ring
Join hands, circle left I sing
The ladies in the men sashay, circle left that way
The ladies in the men sashay, circle left I say
Left allemande your corner, your partner turn thru
Left allemande and promenade your Sue
When I've got the time to believe in nursery rhymes
Then I'll start cooing with you


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) sashay thru with your pretty Sue
Wheel & deal and then star thru
Pass thru, swing thru, boys trade
Turn & left thru, and turn this girl
Dive thru, square thru 3/4 round you go
Swing the corner lady, promenade
* When I believe there's truth in old Mother Goose
Then I'll fall in love with you


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* When I'm a lot more able to believe in a fable
Then I'll start cuddling with you


* Now tell me, Cinderella, if I am your fella
Should I start loving you?

I'll Start Believing In You Lyrics ID: 4024

Tell me how the cow jumped over the moon
How the little lady lived in a shoe
How Jack on a beanstalk climbed to the sky
Then I'll start believing in you

Tell me how Jack Horner got a plum from his thumb
And how Humpty Dumpty fell
I'm a lot more able to believe in a fable
Than all the other stories you tell

You said your diamond ring was just an innocent little thing
That you got it at a Stanley party
Stanley must be quite a guy and his parties sure run high
The price tag read one thousand and forty (what a party!)

Tell me Cinderella did you get your fella
Just by losing your shoe
When I've got the time to believe in nursery rhymes
Then I'll start believing in you

There are stories galore in fairy tale lore
Like the farmer who lived in the dell
There's the owl and pussy cat, the one about Jack Sprat
That I'd much rather hear you tell

There's the turtle and the hare, the preacher and the bear
And the one about the little boy blue
If I can do no worse than nursery rhyme verse
Then I'll start believing in you

You tipsied in the other day, said you'd been to the PTA
Had your swimsuit and an olive you were eating
Now they don't wear bikinis or hand out martinis
Down at the school house meetings (some meeting!)

Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie
Just any old fairy tale will do
When I believe there's truth in old Mother Goose
Then I'll start believing in you

When I believe there's truth in old Mother Goose
Then I'll start believing in you

Lyrics by Jet Penix and Hank Thompson.
Recorded by Hank Thompson.
