Cue Sheet


Four ladies promenade
Go once around the ring I said
Swing, swing, swing your man
Join hands and circle left
Go walking round the ring you bet
Left allemande and weave the set
It's in and out you go until you meet you know
You swing your own and promenade
*My day is never dull
At night I have a ball
It's a caller's life for me

FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

The heads square thru 4 hands around you do
Slide thru with the outside two
Go right & left thru and turn the girl
It's forward up and back you whirl
Pass the ocean there
Peek forward, trade the wave
Two boys you trade
You do a left swing thru
Turn her left, roll promenade
**They feed you lots of stuff
And though I'm fat enough
It's a caller's life for me


*The dancers laugh and play and you will hear me say
I've got a yen to call, so you just fill the hall

**They roll the carpet out and you will hear me shout
To see the dancers smile will make it all worthwhile

**I've got the traveling bug, so you can cut a rug
And so I'll travel on and I will sing this song
