Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Sides face your partner, everybody grand square
We took the legs from some old table
We took the arms from some old chair
And for a neck we used a bottle
And from a horse we took some hair

4 ladies promenade go one time around that ring
And when you're home you swing
Swing your honey round and round and promenade that ring
And I got more lovin' from that gosh darn dummy
Than I ever got from you


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Well now the heads lead to the right and circle 4 you know
You break and make a line, go forward up and back you go
Now pass thru, chase right and when you're through
Boys run around a girl and everybody slide thru
And then you square thru 3 hands, now the corner swing
Left allemande, come back and you can promenade that ring
You promenade that ring, take your honey home again
To the Washington and Lee Swing

Washington And Lee Swing ("The Dummy Song")
 
 

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

Get me some legs
Get me a chair
Ha ha ha, and a bottle too
Get me a horse
Get me some time
And baby when I'm through

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

I get more lovin', from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you
Yeah momma, I get more lovin' from that dummy than I ever got from you

Lyrics by Lew Brown, Billy Rose, and Ray Henderson.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong.
