Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade, the inside of the ring
Pass your partner, allemande left, come back and swing
Put her on the right and circle left around you will go
Left allemande, weave the ring like a right & left grand
Oh ma, he wants to marry me
Dosado your honey bee, promenade
Promenade around you see, oh now he's making eyes at me
Momma he's swinging me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 go forward up and back with you
Square thru 4 hands around to the outside two
1/2 square thru, partner trade and then
Forward up and back to the land, slide thru and swing her man
Allemande left that corner, come back to dosado
Back to back then promenade
Every minute he gets bolder, now he's leaning on my shoulder
Ma, he's swinging me

Ma (He's Making Eyes At Me) Lyrics ID: 147

Ma, he's making eyes at me
Ma, he's awful nice to me
Ma, he's almost breaking my heart
I'm beside him
Mercy! Let his conscience guide him!
Ma, he wants to marry me
Be my honey bee
Every minute he gets bolder
Now he's leaning on my shoulder
Ma, he's kissing me

Little Lily was oh so silly and shy
And all the fellows knew
She wouldn't bill and coo
Every single night some smart fellow would try
To cuddle up to her
But she would cry:

Ma, he's making eyes at me
Ma, he's awful nice to me
Ma, he's almost breaking my heart
If you peek in, can't you see
I'm goin' to weakin'
Ma, he wants to marry me,
Be my honey bee
Ma I'm meeting with resistance
I shall holler for assistance
Ma, he's kissing me

Lily was so good everybody could tell
You'd never see her roam
She'd always stay at home
All the neighbors knew little Lily too well
For when the boys would call
They'd hear her yell:

Ma, he's making eyes at me
Ma, he's awful nice to me
Ma, he's almost breaking my heart
If you peek in, can't you see
I'm goin' to weakin'
Ma, he wants to marry me,
Be my honey bee
Ma I'm meeting with resistance
I shall holler for assistance
Ma, he's kissing me
