Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande left in the alamo style, balance
Swing thru, forward two, balance
Swing thru and then turn your partner right
Left allemande and weave the ring
Wind in and out, look for your own
Dosado and promenade
I fell in with evil companions
But I had a wonderful time


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Four ladies chain straight across
Head couples promenade halfway and when you're there
Lead right and circle to a line
Forward and back, star thru, eight chain three
Look for the corner, turn your fourth girl left
Keep her promenade
I fell in with evil companions last night
But I had a wonderful time

I Fell In With Evil Companions Lyrics ID: 3097

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Not bad, Caesar!

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

I fell in with evil companions
The things that they did were a crime
The girls they pursued were shockingly rude
And I had a wonderful time

Oh, I fell in with evil compa...
Well, sing damn you!
He fell in with evil companions
And he had a wonderful time
Oh, we fell in with evil companions
And we had a wonderful time

Caesar!

They forced me to drink from a bottle
And so at the point of a knife
I showed my good faith, and after the eighth
Well, I had the time of my life

Oh, he fell in with evil companions
And he had the time of his life

They carried on to great excess
You must avoid them, I'll help you
For I kept their address

Oh yes, oh yes!
He kept their address

Well somebody started the music
And somebody blew out the light
They danced on my head and left me for dead
And we had a fabulous night

Oh, we fell in with evil companions
And they had a fabulous night

The Queen! The Queen!

I fell in with evil companions
A girl among dangerous men
They wink and they leer, they're really quite dear
I can't wait to see them again

Oh she fell in with evil companions
She can't wait to see them again

I feel no pain
I'm nicely numb
I'm overjoyed, overwhelmed, overall I'm overcome

He's all but plump, bum-dee-bum-bum-bum

I fell in with evil companions
I'll stay up and wave at the sun
I may never mend, but you've made a friend
For I've never had so much fun

We fell in with evil companions
And we never had so much fun!

Composed by Ervin Drake.

This song has haunted me for about forty years, and now I've finally got more than the first two lines!!!
Q: Wasn't this used in a broadway musical? If not, it deserves to be!
