American Square Dances
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 and make it go, Break right out with a Do-si-do, you'll Never get to Heaven if you carry on so. Now you're right but half wrong, too, When you get the one who belongs to you, Balance home like you always do, and
Chorus Swing,            -          everybody
Swing.            -                    -
On the Corner with your left hand, a Right to your Partner, Right and Left Grand. Sold my jennie, but kept my jack, Meet your Honey and turn right back, With a Right Hand Swing on the old back-track.
Listen, children, to what I say,
Meet your Honey and go the other way.
Now* you're right and you can't go wrong,
Meet your Honey and Promenade along.
Promenade your Partners 'round,
When you get home, just settle down.
Balance to your Partners all,
Square your sets and listen to the call.
Repeat the call for the Second, Third, and Fourth Couples
in turn.
