American Square Dances
Inside Arch, Outside Under, Call
First Couple bow, then you swing, Lead out to the right of the ring, Circle four half-way 'round, the Inside Couple arch.          -
Inside arch, outside under, Inside arch, outside under, Inside arch, outside under, Inside arch, outside under. Out in the center, give her a swing, Lead on to the next in the ring. Join your hands and ring up four, Circle four in the middle of the floor. Bird in the cage and close the door, Flop your wings and sing no more. Bird flies out and the Crow hops in, Three hands up and goin' again. Crow steps out and Partners swing, and On you go to the next in the ring and Circle four half-way 'round, the Inside Couple arch.          -
Inside arch and outside under, Inside arch and outside under, Inside arch and outside under, Inside arch and outside under.
Chorus Everybody swing, and you Swing back to your place in the ring. On the Corner with your left hand, a Right to your Honey, Right and Left Grand. Grand Right and Left 'till you meet your own, Promenade your Partners home. Take those pretty girls right on around, Square your sets and settle down.
Repeat the call for the Second, Third, and Fourth Couples in turn.
