b. Eight couples play this. Two lines are formed facing each other. In one line there is a boy, then a girl, then a boy, etc., in the other line a girl, then a boy, then a girl, etc., in such a way that partners are opposite each other. During 1, each boy pre­tends to be very much interested in the girl at his right, but all the time he is slyly winking at the girl opposite him. At 2, he lets go of the arm of the girl at his right and jumps over to the opposite line and swings his partner. During 3, the partners promenade, and at 4, partners swing.
21 It is sometimes sung "To get to swing my Lucy-o."
