Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
We took the legs from some old table
We took the arms from some old chair
And for a neck we used a bottle
And from a horse we took some hair

Four ladies promenade go one time around
You gotta get back home and swing
Left allemande and promenade the ring
We got more lovin' from the gosh darn dummy
Than we ever got from you


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Here's where the heads promenade go about halfway round
Down the middle and square thru go four hands around
Four hands and then a right & left thru you know
You're gonna veer to the left the couples circulate one time
Girls trade, boys run around this girl, boys trade twice
Swing that corner promenade that ring
Well we got more lovin' from that gosh darn dummy
Than we ever got from you

Washington And Lee Swing ("The Dummy Song")
 
 

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

Get me some legs
Get me a chair
Ha ha ha, and a bottle too
Get me a horse
Get me some time
And baby when I'm through

I'll take the legs from some old table
I'll take the arms from some old chair
I'll take the neck from some old bottle
And from a horse, I'll take the hair
I'll take the hands and face from off a clock and baby, when I'm through
I'll get more lovin' from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you

I get more lovin', from that dumb, dumb, dummy, than I ever got from you
Yeah momma, I get more lovin' from that dummy than I ever got from you

Lyrics by Lew Brown, Billy Rose, and Ray Henderson.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong.
