Take a Peek, Call
First Couple out to the right, and
Around that couple and take a peek,
Back to the center and swing or cheat.
Swing 'em if you love 'em and cheat 'em if you don't.
Around that couple and peek once more,
Back to the center and ring up four,
Circle four, around you go,
On your heel and on your toe.
Now you swap, now you trade, it's
Your pretty girl for my old maid.
Your girl's pretty, but mine's so fine,
You swing yours and I'll swing mine.
On to the next couple on the right, go
Around that couple and take a peek,
Back to the center and swing or cheat.
Swing 'em if you love 'em, cheat 'em if you dare.
Around that couple and peek once more,
Back to the center and circle four,
Ring up four as you did before,
Circle left in the middle of the floor.
I'll swing your girl, you swing mine,
Oh, Boy, ain't that fine!
I'll give you back yours, you give me back mine,
I'll swing my girl any old time.
On to the next couple on the right, and
Around that couple and take a peek,
Back to the center and swing or cheat.
Swing whom you like, cheat 'em if you can.
Around that couple and peek once more,
Back to the center and ring up four.
Circle four, around you go,
On your heel and on your toe.
Now you swap and now you trade, it's
My pretty girl for your old maid.
