When you get home, you ought to know, Well break that ring with a Do-si-do. Partners by the left, Corners right, Swing those girls if it takes all night. Now you're right and now you're wrong, Get your Honey, take her home, and
Cboms Swing,           -         everybody,
Swing.           -         -         -
On the Corner with your left hand, a Right to your Partner, Right and Left Grand. Grand Right and Left 'till you meet your own, Promenade your Partners home. You got Sue and Sue's got you, Take her home like you always do.
Repeat the call for the Second, Third, and Fourth Couples in turn, calling "Next Couple right and circle four" on the first four beats of the call.
SASHAY BY YOUR PARTNERS TWO, DESCRIPTION
The First Couple leads to the Second Couple, with whom they form a ring tsf four and circle clockwise half around and then break the ring. The gentlemen dance to the right behind their Partners while the ladies dance to the left in front of their Partners to exchange places, the same action as in "Sashay Partners half-way 'round," but to the call of "Sashay by your Partners two." The dancers now "Re-sashay," retracing their steps to place.
The two couples now dance toward each other and pass the opposite person by the right shoulder to a back-to-back position. Each dancer makes a right-about-face pivot to face the person behind him, and swings his Opposite half around with a Waltz
