Rattlesnake Twist
1.  All jump up and never come down, And swing your honey around and
around, 'Til the hollow of your foot Makes a hole in the ground. And promenade, oh, promenade.
2,  a) Now all join hands and circle
to the left. The first couple break.
b)   The first gent lead down the rattlesnake's hole, In and out with a rattlesnake twist.
c)   The first lady lead back With a rattlesnake tivist, And circle eight.
3. .Now allemande left with your left hand.
Right hand to partner and right and left grand. Meet your partner and promenade.
Repeat 2 and 3 for second, third, and fourth couples.
First gent lead down the rattlesnake's hole.
