Cue Sheet side A

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    A1

Allemande your corner, come home and you swing
You swing your lady once or twice and promenade the ring
1 & 3 wheel around and star thru you do
Right & left thru and turn her twice, get set with your Sue
Star thru, then pass thru, go on to the next
A star thru, right & left thru, you turn with your pet
Star thru, cross trail, left allemande
Come back one and promenade, you promenade the land
Promenade home with your pride and your joy
And swing with Charley, my boy


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Walk all around your corner, see saw your pet
Head two couples forward, come back to the set
Now cross trail, u-turn back, the opposite swing
Face the middle and pass thru and circle half you do
Dive thru and square thru 3/4 round you go
Corner lady swing, you swing her high and low
Allemande left new corner, grand right & left you go
When you meet your lady, promenade her on home
Promenade home with your pride and your joy
And swing, swing Charley, my boy


TAG

Swing with Charley, oh, my Charley
Swing with Charley, my boy
Cue Sheet side B

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Each boy and girl you do a frontier whirl
Ladies whirl away and corners right arm whirl
Your partner left arm turn and then the girls star right
See saw round your partner when he comes in sight
You do a left allemande and then a right & left grand
As you meet each lady, smile and shake her hand
Promenade, there'll be no swinging
'Till you hear those bells a-ringing
While Billy's at the ole piana, way down in Alabama
Playin' to the Oceana Roll


FIGURE    Basic, R-H lady progression

Heads you bow and do a 1/2 square thru
Go through the sides, you split 'em, line up 4 you do
It's up and back for you, and then you all pass thru
Just bend the line and circle 8 a step or two
Now listen to me, you do a corner swing
All 4 ladies star left across and swing
Keep this lady, promenade her, you won't need to serenade her
While Billy's at the ole piana, way down in Alabama
Playin' to the Oceana Roll

Charley, My Boy
 
 

Charley, my boy, oh Charley, my boy
You thrill me, you chill me, with shivers of joy
You've got that kinda sorta bit of a way
That makes me, takes me, tell me what shall I say

And when we dance I read in your glance
Whole pages and ages of love and romance
They tell me Romeo was some lover, too
But boy, he should have taken lessons from you
You seem to start where others get through
Oh, Charley, my boy.

Charley, my boy, oh Charley, my boy
You thrill me, you chill me, with shivers of joy
You've got that kinda sorta bit of a way
That makes me, takes me, tell me what shall I say

And when we dance I read in your glance
Sweet notions and oceans of love and romance
My mother told me that I shouldn't be kissed
But then your coaxing ways are hard to resist
My lips refuse, but your eyes insist
Oh, Charley, my boy.

Lyrics by Gus Kahn and Ted Fiorito.
