Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

4 ladies chain, turn Mary Lou
Now circle 8, halfway will do
Allemande left your corner girl, go right and left and then
Dopaso, it's corner right, partner left and then
Allemande thar, back up star
Shoot that star then promenade
Promenade, don't keep them waiting
We'll start our celebrating
When I swing with you, Mary Lou

FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Left allemande and a dosado
Men move in, star left you know
Come on back for a catch all 8
1/2 by the right and back by the left
Go full around to the corner, you box the gnat and then
Grand right & left, meet Mary Lou
Promenade go two by two
*Bells are ringing, people singing
Soon we'll all be swinging
Back at home with you, Mary Lou


4 ladies chain, turn Mary Lou
Heads go forward, back with you
Cross trail, around one, behind the sides star thru
Sides square thru 3/4 round will do
Left allemande and right & left grand
When you meet promenade hand in hand
Bells are ringing, people singing
I can hear the choir singing
When I swing with you, Mary Lou


*Steeple bells will soon be ringing
All the choir's singing
When I swing with you, Mary Lou

Mary Lou, Mary Lou
Cross my heart, I love you.
Every bell in the steeple is ready to ring
And all the people are planning pretty presents all for you.
Mary Lou
Won't you give me your promise true?
Why for miles around they're waiting
To start their celebrating
When you say "I do"
Mary Lou

Lyrics by Abe Lyman, J. Russell Robinson, and George Waggoner.
Recorded by Bing Crosby.
