Allemande left, the ladies star and the gentlemen promenade
Allemande left, the gentlemen star and the ladies promenade
Allemande left your corner, turn your partner by the right
The men star by the left hand, it's once around tonight
Now with your partner, turn thru, and the corner allemande
You dosado around and then you promenade the land, Hey!
Lucky, lucky, lucky me, I'm a lucky son of-a-gun
I work 8 hours, I sleep 8 hours, I keep 8 hours for fun

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 lead to the right, circle 'round the track
The heads you break and you make a line, forward up and back, Hey!
Pass thru, wheel & deal, centers swing thru
Turn thru to the corner, left allemande you do
You dosado around your own, that corner lady swing
You allemande left that corner, you promenade and sing, Hey!
Lucky, lucky, lucky me, though I haven't got a dime
I dance and play in a carefree way and I have a heck of a time


I work 8 hours, I sleep 8 hours, I keep 8 hours for fun
