Birds in the Center, Crows Go Around A finish call
Right hand gents with a right hand 'round,
Partners by the left as you come down,
Your Opposite Gents with a right hand a-
-round;           -          -          -
Partners by the left as you come down,
Your left hand gents with a right hand a-
-round,                     -         
Partners by the left as you come down, the
Birds in the center and the Crows go a-
-round.           -          -          -
Circle once 'till you get home, the
Birds fly out and the Crows hop in,
Turn those rings around again,
When you get home, you break and swing.
Swing your Partners one and all,
Turn 'em loose and face the hall, and
Chorus On the Corner with your left hand, a Right to your Honey, Right and Left Grand. Grand Right and Left 'till you meet your own, Promenade your Partners home; Take those pretty girls right on around, When you get home just settle down.
This finish call is often used as a trimming for other dances.
