Why Do They Always Say No?

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Why do they always say no
When you know they mean yes all the time
How can they tell you such a big lie
And still look you straight in the eye

Four ladies promenade that ring
Get back and give him a swing
Join all your hands and circle that floor
Left allemande and promenade once more (long promenade)
Why do they always say no, no, no
When you know they mean yes all the time


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Four ladies chain 'cross that ring
Heads promenade half way I sing
Come down the middle, square thru you do
Four hands around, now go right & left thru
Slide thru then square thru again
Four hands around then trade by
Touch 1/4, scoot back and then
Swing that lady, promenade her my friend
Why do they always say no, no, no
When you know they mean yes all the time


TAG

Bow to your partner, corners all, whoa right there you all

(Note: Dance has six 80 beat sequences...NO Middle Break)
