Hi Diddle Diddle
Gitty Fischer; Daniel Küblböck 1999
  (Gramophone Productions 405)   Jerry Jestin

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Old King Cole was a merry old soul
And a merry old soul was he
He called for his pie and he called for his bowl
And he called for a storybook tea
Porridge cold, Porridge hot
He chased the mouse right up the clock
It was a rowdy crowd and it got real loud

Allemande and weave
Hi diddle, diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And a cow jumped over the moon
Little boy blue and the woman in the shoe
And the cup ran away with the spoon
Hi diddle, diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And they played it all night long
They all drank beer and everybody cheered
When they heard that storybook song


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and you go 4 hands for me
Swing thru, spin the top and a single hinge
Girls run, reverse roll her away
Touch 1/4 then scoot back one time
Swing your corner and promenade
Hi diddle, diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And they played it all night long
They all drank beer and everybody cheered
When they heard that storybook song


ALTERNATE LYRICS

Sides face, grand square
Humpty Dumpty came to the ball
But he drank too much and had a great fall
All for the girl who had a little curl
And she made a mess of Humpty's world
Old Jack Spratt could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
So between the two of them
They licked the platter clean


Sides face, grand square
Jack and Jill ran up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill was soon to follow
But Jack was nimble and Jack was quick
And he played the drums with a candlestick
Everybody came from miles around
When they dig that storybook sound


TAG

Swing her
They all drank beer and everybody cheered
When they heard that storybook song
