The Play-Party in Indiana.

Captain Jinks.
a.
Captain Jinks came home last night, Gentleman passes to the right, Swing your lady very polite, For that's the style in the army.
Go to your partner and promenade, promenade, promenade, Go to your partner and promenade, for that's the style in the army. As I played the game at school ten years ago, it had the stanza of the preceding and the chorus of the following variant.
1.     Captain Jinks came home last night,
2.     Pass the lady to the right.
3.     Promenade with all your might, For that's the style in the army.
4.     :A11 join hands and circle to the left: Three times: For that's the style in the army.
Miss Fannie Stewart, Shelby Tp.
