All now dance a Two Hand Swing with Partners and then dance toward their Corners with whom they take the skating position and all Promenade with Corners once around the set to the gentleman's home place.
The call is repeated three more times for the Head Couples, and then four times for the Side Couples, making eight changes in all, and finishing the dance with original Partners.
Split the Ring, Call
First and Third go forward and back, and
Forward again on the same old track, with a
Right and Left Through, -
Ladies go gee and the gents go haw,
Around Sally Gooden' and around Grandma,
See-saw your pretty litde Taw,
Do-si the Corner of the hall.
All around that pretty little thing, and
Meet your Honey with a Two Hand Swing.
All ran away with the Corner of the ring, and
Chorus Promenade your Corners all, * Hold those gals, don't let 'em fall-Promenade around the town, Take those pretty girls right on around, When you get home just settle down.
Repeat the call three more times for the Head Couples, and then four times for the Side Couples, eight changes in all.
