Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Why'd you go away and leave me in Big Mamou
You went away and left me alone and so blue

Allemande that corner, come back do a dosado
Left allemande that corner, weave the ring
Play a little fiddle
Swing the girl around and promenade around that ring
Please come back, oh baby come on back
Come on back and live with me in Big Mamou


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well now heads square thru four hands around that ring
Round the corner lady dosado one time I sing
Swing thru tonight, boys run right
Bend your line, right and left thru turn the girl
Flutter wheel across that ring and then slide thru
Swing and promenade yes you do
Please come back, oh baby come on back
Come on back and live with me in Big Mamou

Big Mamou (Grand Mamou)
 
 

...
Grand Mamou

You went away and left me in Big Mamou
Yes, you left me for another, left me alone and oh, so blue
Please come back, hey, cheri, come on back
Make me happy and live with me in Big Mamou

...
Grand Mamou

You can have your dirty rice and crackers, too
You can have your file gumbo and your cold black coffee, too
Please come back, hey cheri, come on back
Make me happy and live with me in Big Mamou

...
Grand Mamou

(1)
On va toute aller a Grand Mamou,
Jolie monde, jolie fille, moi j'connait pas fais pa sa.
Eh ha ha, oh mignonne,
Ah bien moi j'men va la bas a Grand Mamou.

(2)
Why'd you go away and leave me in big Mamou,
You went away and left me alone and so blue.
Please come back, oh baby come on back,
Come on back and live with me in big Mamou.

(3)
Oh moi j'men va la bas a Grand Mamou,
Moi j'men va toute seule, en jonglant ca q'ta fait.
Si tu voudrait r'venir, avec moi a Grand Mamou,
J'serait content de t'avoir pour me femme.

(4)
Yeah I'm going to, to the big Mamou,
I'm going all alone, thinking of what you've done.
If you want to come back, with me to big Mamou,
I'd be happy, to have you for my wife.

(5)
Oh 'tite cherie, villaine maniere,
Tu va pleurer un jour, pour toute ca q'ta fait.
Et moi j'men va, dans les chemins toute seule,
Et moi j'men va la bas a Grand Mamou.

Lyrics by Link Davis.
