American Square Dances
Sashay Partners Half-Way 'Round, Call
First Couple right and circle four,
Half-way 'round and then no more.
Sashay Partners half-way 'round, and
Re-sashay, go all the way a-
-round.           -          -          -
Form a ring and make it go,
When you get right we'll Do-si-do.
On your heel and on your toe, you'll
Never get around if you go too slow.
One more change, one more swing,
Get your own and form a ring, the
Same old four 'till you get fixed, now
Pick up two and make it six.
Circle six in the middle of the floor,
Half-way 'round as you did before.
Sashay Partners half-way 'round, and
Re-sashay, go all the way a-
-round.           -
Form a ring and make it go,
Half-way 'round and don't be slow,
Bow and smile and Do-si-do.
Swing 'em high and swing 'em low,
Pat your heel and save your toe.
Do-si-do like picking up sticks, now
Get your own and ring up six.
Circle six 'till you get straight,
When you get right we'll drop the gate, and
Pick up two and make it eight.
Circle half around the hall,
Hold your Honey, don't let her fall*
Sashay Partners half-way 'round her,
Re-sashay, go all the way a-
-round her. -          -          -
Form a ring and make it go,
