Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

You circle left and shimmy just like Sister Kate
Docey the corner, see saw your date
Left allemande but do it alamo style
Shimmy in, shimmy out, box the gnat a while
Four ladies promenade inside of that ring
Home you go and dosado, that same one you swing
Swing a while with Katie when you promenade
You're walkin' with your sister Kate
(You swing 'em)
Swinging with your sister Kate


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head two couples forward, come on back and star thru
square thru 3 hands around and meet the corner Sue
Left allemande and weave the ring you know
Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, partner dosado
Gents star left now, go around that old ring
Home you go and dosado, that corner you swing
Swing a while with Katie, then you promenade
You're walkin' with your sister Kate
(You swing 'em)
Shimmy like your sister Kate

I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate
 
 

I went to a dance with my sister Kate
Everybody there thought she danced so great
I realized a thing or two
When I got wise to something new

When I looked at Kate, she was in a trance
And then I knew it was in her dance
All the boys are going wild
Over sister Katie's style

Oh, I wish I could I shimmy like my sister Kate
She shimmies like a jelly on a plate
My mama wanted to know last night
What makes the boys think Kate's so nice

Now all the boys in the neighborhood
They know that she can shimmy and it's understood
I know that I'm late, but I'll be up-to-date
When I shimmy like my sister Kate
I mean, when I shimmy like my sister Kate

Now I can shimmy like my sister Kate
I know that I'm real late
I think I'll do a real shimmy dance
Dancing like my sister Kate
Sweet papa, just like my sister Kate

Lyrics by Clarence Williams and Armand J. Piron.
Recorded by Fats Waller; many others.
