Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Romeo had Juliet, Jack had Jill
Romeo took poison, Jack fell down the hill

Walk around the corner, see saw your own
Allemande the corner, weave around that ring
If lovin' you is killing me, oh what a way to go
Swing with your girl and then keep her and you promenade
Just wipe the smile off my face and let 'em lay me low
If lovin' you is killing me, oh what a way to go


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru in the middle of the ring all the way around you go
Now to the corner honey, do a dosado
Make a wave and swing thru, now the boys run right
All the couples circulate, move up, ferris wheel tonight
Everybody do a double pass thru and the lead 2 partner trade
Swing that corner girl, keep her and you promenade
Just wipe the smile off my face and let 'em lay me low
If lovin' you is killing me, oh what a way to go


MIDDLE BREAK   

Four girls promenade, go walkin' on around that ring
Back home and now swing there with your date
Join up your hands, circle to the left, go movin' around
Allemande left with the corner girl weave around that ring
If lovin' you is killing me, oh what a way to go
If there's a better way to die, I don't want to know
Just wipe the smile off my face and let 'em lay me low
If lovin' you is killing me, oh what a way to go


TAG

If lovin' you is killing me, oh what a way to go
