Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Walk out around that corner girl
Join hands and circle 1/2 way, 1/2 way around the ring
Heads face grand square
I can hear the music playing
I can feel her body swaying
One floor below me, you don't even know me, I love you

Well 4 ladies chain, chain 'em back and promenade
Yeah twice on the pipes means the answer is no
Oh my darling knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
Yeah, twice on the pipes means the answer is no


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) go into the middle and back, dosado go once around
Swing thru and then star thru, circle up 4
You make a line of 4, go up and back
Ladies lead with a flutter wheel across and then
Spin the top you know, well you turn thru
Swing corner and promenade her
Oh twice on the pipes means the answer is no
Oh my sweetness knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
Yeah, twice on the pipes means the answer is no

Knock Three Times Lyrics ID: 114

Hey girl what ya doin' down there
Dancin' alone every night while I live right above you
I can hear your music playin'
I can feel your body swayin'
One floor below me you don't even know me
I love you

Oh my darling
Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no
Oh my sweetness (knock, knock, knock)
Means you'll meet me in the hallway
Twice on the pipe (bing, bing) means you ain't gonna show

If you look out your window tonight
Pull in the string with the note that's attached to my heart
Read how many times I saw you
How in my silence I adored you
Only in my dreams did that wall between us come apart

Oh my darling
Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no
Oh my sweetness (knock, knock, knock)
Means you'll meet me in the hallway
Twice on the pipe means you ain't gonna show

I can hear your music playin'
I can feel your body swayin'
One floor below me you don't even know me
I love you

Oh my darling
Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no
Oh my sweetness (knock, knock, knock)
Means you'll meet me in the hallway
Twice on the pipe means you ain't gonna show

Lyrics by L. Russell Brown and Irwin Levine.
Recorded by Tony Orlando & Dawn.
