Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands circle to the left
Go all the way around the big ol' set
When you get home it's 1 & 3 (2 & 4) dance up and back for me
2 & 4 (1 & 3) go up to the middle and back
Everybody face your partner bow and give her a swing
You swing your girl and promenade around the ring
You promenade 'em round the square, take that lady home from there
It's so nice to have those gals around the square


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) you promenade halfway to the other side, stop there
And couples 2 & 4 (1 & 3), promenade 'em round the ring you go, halfway around you know
Join all hands circle left halfway to home
Face your partner pass her by and then swing the next
You swing that gal, you promenade you bet
You promenade 'em round the square, take your lady home from there
It's so nice to have those gals around the square


TAG

Then bow to the partner and lady on the left


(Written cue sheet)

INTRO

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER

All bow to partner
All swing partner (twice around)
All promenade partner full around


FIGURE

(behind the side couples) and turn to face the center of the square directly
across from starting position

home position
All face partner and pass by (pass right shoulders) and meet the next

Each man swing the next (three times around) and keep her as a new partner
(put her on his right side)
All promenade new partner full around to men's home

It's So Nice To Have A Man Around The House
 
 

It's so nice to have a man around the house
Oh, so nice to have a man around my house
Someone sweet who's glad he found you
Who will put his arms around you
And his kisses just astound you, it's so nice

Oh, a house is just a house without a man
He's the necessary evil in your plan
Someone kind who knows you treasure, any simple little pleasure
Like a full-length mink to cover last year's blouse
It's so nice to have a man around the house

It's so nice to have a man around the house
Oh, so nice to have a man around the house
Just a guy in pipe and slippers
Who will share your breakfast kippers
And will help you zip your zippers, it's so nice

Oh, a house is just a house without a man
He's the necessary evil in your plan
Just a knight in shining armor who is something of a charmer
Even though he may be someone else's spouse
It's so nice to have a man around the house

It's so nice
Just about the most important thing I can think of
So put no one else above him, when you love him, really love him
Though it's two to one you'll wind up with a louse
It's so nice to have a man around the house
So nice, so nice

Composed by Harold Spina.
Lyrics by John Moon Elliot.
Recorded by Dianh Shore; Eartha Kitt; many others.
