Bare Necessities   (Grenn 12414)   Brian Hotchkies
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four honey bears* promenade inside the ring
Come back and swing your koala bear**
Join up your hands, circle to the left and you're gonna move it round the set
Then allemande left with the corner girl, you're gonna weave around the ring
Look for the bare necessities, simple bare necessities
Swing your girl, and promenade that lady home
I mean the bare necessities are Mother Nature's recipes
They bring the bare necessities of life


ALTERNATE LYRICS

* Girls: "Honey bears"

* Boys: "Koala bears", "Polar bears", "Panda bears", "Grisly bears"

(**Yes, I know "Koalas" are not technically bears, but for this dance we can pretend).


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands you go
Swing thru there you know
Spin your top, and then, go right & left thru
Square thru 3/4 round you go
Everybody swing and whirl, swing now with that pretty little girl
And promenade that lady fair around the ring you go
Look for the bare necessities, that's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life
