Sashay by Your Partners Two, Call
First Couple right and circle four, Half-way 'round in the middle of the floor. Sashay by your Partners two, and Re-sashay and Right and Left Through, Swing that girl behind you.
Sashay by your Partners two, and
Re-sashay and Right and Left Through,
Swing your own behind you.
Swing her once and form a ring,
Circle half, around you go,
Break that ring with a Do-si-do.
Walk right around on your heel and toe,
Hurry up, boys, and don't be slow.
Chicken in the bread pan scratchin' out gravel,
One more change and on you travel.
On to the next and circle four,
Half-way 'round as you did before.
Sashay by your Partners two, and
Re-sashay and Right and Left Through,
Swing that girl behind you.
Sashay by your Partners two, and
Re-sashay and Right and Left Through,
Swing your own behind you.
Swing her once and form a ring,
Half-way 'round you make it go,
Bow and smile and Do-si-do, with a
little bit of heel and a little bit of toe,
"Granny, will your dog bite? No, child, no!"
Now you're right and now you're wrong,
Take your Honey and travel on.
On to the next and circle four,
Half-way 'round with your feet on the floor.
