release right hands and join left hands with Partners, and swing once around counterclockwise with a Left Hand Swing.
The First Couple now dances the figure with the Third Couple and then repeats the figure with the Fourth Couple, after which all couples swing once around with a Waltz Swing and then dance the chorus call of "All around your Left Hand Lady," "See-saw your pretty little Taw," "On the Corner with your Left Hand," "Grand Right and Left," and Promenade home with Partners.
The call is repeated with the Second, Third, and Fourth Couples in turn leading the dance.
Introductory Call Four
On your heel and on your toe,
Stomp your feet and here we go.
All around your Left Hand La-
-dy,                 -
See-saw your pretty little Taw.
On the Corner with your left hand,
Allemande Left as pretty as you can,
Right to your Partner, Right and Left Grand.
Grand Right and Left around the ring,
While the roosters crow and the birdies sing.
Promenade that pretty little thing
You call your own, -          -
Balance to your Partners all,
Square your sets and listen to the call.
