American Square Dances
Dive for the Oyster, Call
First Couple right and ring up four, Circle left in the middle of the floor, and Dive for the oyster, -         -
Dive for the clam, -         -
Dive for the sardine and take a full can. Pull 'em through and don't be slow, 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. Now you're right, and now you're wrong, Take your Honey and travel on. On to the next and ring up four, Circle left as you did before, and Dive for the oyster, -         -
Dive for the clam, -         -
Dive for the sardine and take a full can.
Pull 'em through and don't be slow,
When you get straight, we'll Do-si-do.
Chicken in the bread pan kickin' out dough,
Big pig a'rootin' up a sweet potato row,
"Granny, will your dog bite? No, child, no!"
One more change and next you go.
On to the next and ring up four,
Circle four in the middle of the floor, and
Dive for the oyster, -         -
Dive for the clam, -         -
Dive for the sardine and take a full can. Pull 'em through and don't be slow, Break right out with a Do-si-do. Walk right around on your heel and toe, Swing 'em all with that Do-si-do.
