Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande your corner, promenade your own
Go walkin' round don't let 'em roam
Girls roll in and make a right hand star
Turn your partner by the left and make an allemande thar
Men back up, slip the clutch, left allemande
Weave the ring, go in and out around
Promenade your lady, go walkin' around
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown


FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

Heads to the right, circle around the track
Break and make a line, go walkin' up and back
Star thru, dosado, go one time around
Swing thru two by two when you come down
Box the gnat, pull by, left allemande
Swing your own, you promenade ther land
Promenade the lady, go walkin' around
The roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

Don't Let The Rain Come Down (Crooked Little Man)
 
 

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

There was a crooked man and he had a crooked smile
Had a crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Had a crooked cat and he had a crooked mouse
They all lived together in a crooked little house

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

Well, this crooked little man and his crooked little smile
Took his crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Bought some crooked nails and a crooked little bat
Tried to fix his roof with a rat-tat-tat-tat-tat

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

Now this crooked little man and his crooked cat and mouse
They all live together in a crooked little house
Has a crooked door with a crooked little latch
Has a crooked roof with a crooked little patch

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don't let the rain come down
My roof's got a hole in it (my roof's got a hole in it)
My roof's got a hole in it and I might drown

Lyrics by Ersel Hickey and Ed E. Miller.
Recorded by The Serendipity Singers.
