Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
You must have been a beautiful baby
You must have been a wonderful child

Allemande left with the corner girl
Turn the partner by the right
Allemande left that corner, weave the ring
And when it comes to winnin' blue ribbons
Swing your girl and promenade
Oh, you must have been a beautiful baby
Cause baby look at you now


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru and count me four hands
With the side two swing thru
Spin the top and then, get a right & left thru my friend
Ladies lead dixie style, make an ocean wave
Girls cross fold, single circle, rear back
Swing corner girl and promenade
Oh, you must have been a beautiful baby
Cause baby look at you now

You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby
 
 

Does your mother realize,
The stork delivered quite a prize,
The day he left you on the fam'ly tree?
Does your dad appreciate,
That you are merely super great,
The miracle of any century!
If they don't, just send them both to me.

You must have been a beautiful baby,
You must have been a wonderful child.
When, you were only startin'
To go to kindergarten,
I bet you drove the little boys wild.

And when it came to winning blue ribbons,
You must have shown the other kids how.
I can see the judges' eyes
As they handed you the prize,
I bet you made the cutest bow.

Oh! You must have been a beautiful baby,
'cause, baby, look at you now.

Composed by Harry Warren.
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer and Harry Warren.
Recorded by Tommy Dorsey; Bing Crosby; Bobby Darin; others.
