Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
Ma she's making eyes at me
Ma she's very nice to me

Allemande left your corner, come home dosado
Gents star left once around the ring you go
Home you go, there you turn thru
Left allemande, come back and promenade
Promenade she's getting bolder
Now she's leaning on my shoulder
*Ma, she's swinging me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around and then
Come down the middle, pass the ocean, there extend
Swing thru two by two, boys run to the right
Tag the line, face to the right
Ferris wheel out there tonight
Centers pass thru, turn thru I say
Left allemande, come back and promenade
Promenade around you see
Now she's making eyes at me
*Ma, she's swinging me


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Ma, she's hugging me

*Ma, she's kissing me

Ma (He's Making Eyes At Me)
 
 

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

Composed by Con Conrad.
Lyrics by Sidney Clare.
