Bunch the heifers in the middle ; Circle, stags, and do-se-do; Pay attention to the fiddle ! Swing her 'round and off you go !
First four forward ! Back to places ! Second fellow, shuffle back ! Now you've got it down to cases— Swing 'em till their trotters crack ! Gents all right a'heel and toeing ! Swing 'em, kiss 'em if you kin— On to next and keep a-goin', Till yer hit yer pards agin !
Gents to center, ladies 'round 'em, Form a basket, balance all ! Whirl yer gals to where you found 'em; Promenade around the hall ! Balance to yer pards and trot 'em. 'Round the circle double quick, Grab an' kiss while you've got 'em, Hold 'em to it if they kick !
Ladies, left hand to your sonnies ! Alaman ! Grind right and left ! Balance all an' swing yer honeys— Pick 'em up an' feel their heft ! Promenade like skeery cattle— Balance all an' swing yer sweets ! Shake yer spurs an' make 'em rattle ! Keno ! Promenade to seats.
