Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade, go walking around that ring
You get back home and everybody swing, swing, swing
You're gonna join hands, circle left go moving around that ring
Left allemande that corner, weave that ring
Well wind 'em, roll 'em, move 'em around that ring and go
Dosado the pretty little girl and promenade her home
Well it don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing
Do-wah, do-wah, do-wah, do-wah-do


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well heads square thru in the middle and you count four hands round
Out to the corner lady dosado once around
You're gonna swing thru tonight let them boys run right
You bend that line and do the right and left thru
Now pass the ocean here, recycle round and go
Swing that corner lady once and promenade her home
Well it don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing
Do-wah, do-wah, do-wah, do-wah-do


TAG (Optional)

Sides face, grand square halfway
Do-wah, do-wah, do-wah, do-wah-do
Bow to the partner that's all.


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

Heads promenade and take 'em halfway and go
Walk into the middle and square thru go four, four, four
Four hand around and do a right and left thru
Veer to the left and couples circulate
Do a half tag, scoot back and corner lady swing
Swing that lady once around and promenade that ring
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing
Do-wah, do-wah, do-wah, do-wah-do

It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) Lyrics ID: 1454

What good is melody, what good is music
If it ain't possessin' something sweet
It ain't the melody, it ain't the music
There's something else that makes the tune complete

It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing
It don't mean a thing, all you got to do is sing
It makes no diff'rence if it's sweet or hot
Just give that rhythm ev'rything you got
It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing

Lyrics by Irving Mills and Duke Ellington.
Recorded by Ella Fitzgerald; and many others.
