Cue Sheet


4 ladies promenade go once around the ring
Come on back box the gnat and swing
Now join your hands circle left around you go
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring
In and out around and when you meet your maid
Dosado and promenade
Promenade your lady fair, right on home I sing
Dancing with a Yankee Doodle Boy

FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

(1 and 3) promenade halfway around the world
Down the middle star thru, California twirl
Swing thru the outside two, ladies trade you know
Boys trade, boys run, wheel & deal and go
Dive thru, pass thru, corner lady swing
Swing that girl and promenade
Promenade your lady fair, right on home I sing
Dancing with a Yankee Doodle Boy

The Yankee Doodle Boy

I'm the kid that's all the candy,
I'm a Yankee Doodle dandy,
I'm glad I am,
So's Uncle Sam.
I'm a real live Yankee Doodle,
Made my name and fame and boodle
Just like Mister Doodle did, by riding on a pony.
I love to listen to the Doodle strain,
I long to see the girl I left behind me;
And that ain't a josh,
She's a Yankee, by gosh,
Oh, say can you see
Anything about a Yankee that's phony?

I'm a Yankee Doodle dandy,
A Yankee Doodle, do or die;
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam's,
Born on the Fourth of July.
I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart,
She's my Yankee Doodle joy.
Yankee Doodle came to London,
Just to ride the ponies,
I am a Yankee Doodle boy.

Father's name was Hezikiah,
Mother's name was Ann Maria,
Yanks through and through,
Red, White and Blue.
Father was so Yankee-hearted,
When the Spanish war was started
He slipped on his uniform and hopped up on a pony.
My mother's mother was a Yankee true,
My father's father was a Yankee too,
And that's going some,
For the Yankees, by gum,
Oh, say can you see
Anything about my pedigree that's phony?


Lyrics by George M. Cohan.
