Old Call(s)
Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK   

Allemande left, the ladies star, the gents stand where you be
The same old gent with the arm around just take a walk with me
Promenade with the bully of the town
Spread the star like box the flea
The gents star left you know
Pass this lady right on by, the next one promeno
Promenade your lady, promenade around
And she'll swing with the bully of the town


FIGURE   

All 4 ladies to the left promenade the inside ring
Partners left, box the flea
Your corners you will swing
She'll swing with the bully of the town
Allemande left like a hottentot
You pass your honey to the old red hot
Turn your right hand lady with a right hand round
Your partner lady with the left hand around
Promenade your corner, now you're homeward bound
And she'll swing with the bully of the town

Repeat figure for the gents, using the line All 4 gents to the right...

 
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Allemande left, you dosado round your own
Go single file awhile
The gents backtrack
Turn your partners right hand round
Allemande left that corner lady
Right & left grand, you're goin' to town
Powder your face with sunshine
Box the gnat, then look her in the eye
As you promenade her, you will serenade her
And smile, smile, smile


FIGURE   

1 & 3 you'll promenade the outside of that ring
Go all the way around, pass your home again
Swing the one you meet, face the center of the set
The outside couples 1/2 sashay
Across the center, box the gnat
Pull her thru to a dopaso
Your corners right and around you go
Left hand swing your own
Your corners promenade
You've got a brand new maid, so smile, smile, smile

Bully Of The Town Lyrics ID: 3815

I'm lookin' for the bully
The bully of the town
I'm lookin' for the bully
But the bully can't be found
I'm lookin' for the bully of the town

Every night I walk this township round
I'm lookin' for the bully
But the bully can't be found
When I find the bully
Gonna knock him down
I'm lookin' for the bully of the town

I'm lookin' for the bully
The bully of the town
I'm lookin' for the bully
But the bully can't be found
I'm lookin' for the bully of the town

Every night I walk the levy round
I'm lookin' for the bully
But the bully can't be found
Ain't no one gonna tie me down
I'm lookin' for the bully of the town

Every night I walk this township round
I'm lookin' for the bully
But the bully can't be found
When I find the bully
Gonna knock him down
I'm lookin' for the bully of the town

Composed by Charles E. Trevathan and J. W. Cavanaugh.

Powder Your Face With Sunshine (Smile Smile Smile) Lyrics ID: 2421

Powder your face with sunshine
Put on a great big smile
Make up your eyes with laughter
Folks will be laughing with you in a little while

Whistle a tune of gladness
Gloom never was in style
The future's brighter
When hearts are lighter
Smile, smile, smile!

Powder your face with sunshine
Put on a great big smile
Make up your eyes with laughter
Folks will be laughing with you in a little while

Whistle a tune of gladness
Gloom never was in style
The future's brighter
When hearts are lighter
Smile, smile, smile!

Whistle a tune of gladness
Gloom never was in style
The future's brighter
When hearts are lighter
Smile, smile, smile!

Lyrics by Carmen Lombardo and Stanley Rochinski.
Recorded by Evelyn Knight; Dean Martin; Frank Sinatra; many others.
 

Comments

The FIGURE (for Side B, Powder Your Face) works as follows:
Heads promenade FULL; then face the couple on their right (as those couples turn to the left to face the heads); WAIST swing (i.e., highland fling) facing dancer and face the center of the set (notice the outsides are half sashayed, hence the next call); outsides half sashay as centers box the gnat; centers pull by (all are facing original partner); Dopaso; take CORNER and promenade...
