Intro, break, ending:
Allemande left your corner girl, do-sa-do your own
Gents star left inside the track ‘round the ring don’t roam
Come on back and box the gnat. The girls star left you know
Walk all ‘round that big ole ring, and do a do-sa-do.
Left allemande, grand right and left
When you meet that gal, promenade the set.
Promenade this gal on home and swing her just for me
If she won’t swing when you get home, divorce her C.O.D.
One and three lead to the right and circle to a line
Go forward eight and back with you, pass through and bend the line
Pass on through and wheel and deal, double pass on through
First two left, the next two right, cross trail through you do
Left allemande, do-si your own. Your corner swing, promenade her home.
Promenade that gal on home and swing her just for me
If she won’t swing when you get home, divorce her C.O.D.Children | Community | Contra | Dash | Folk | Shilling | Round | Square | Alphabetical
