Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain go across that old ring
Rollaway and circle left I sing
Rollaway and circle go round
You allemande left and buddy weave the ring
Weave in and out 'till you meet your date
Dosado and promenade
Promenade your lady
Wouldn't it be great
If only she could shimmy like her sister Kate


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads flutter wheel one time and then
Touch 1/4, walk & dodge my friend
Swing thru and the men run right
Tag the line, face right, wheel & deal then
Turn thru and do a left allemande
Swing a new girl, promenade that land
Promenade your lady
It would be so great
If only she could shimmy like her sister Kate


TAG

Allemande left and bow to your 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.
