The Unicorn   (Riverboat 509 X)   Jack O'Leary
OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
A long time ago, when the Earth was green
There were more kinds of animals than you've ever seen
They'd run around free while the Earth was being born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn

4 ladies promenade the ring, one time around
Swing your man and promenade around
There's cats and rats and elephants, but as sure as you're born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, 4 hands, go walkin' 'round the ring
Make a right hand star with the outsides, and roll it 'round I sing
Heads you star by the left, one time and go
And to the same outside two you do your right & left thru
Roll a half sashay, touch 1/4, scoot back girl
Star thru and promenade the ring
There's cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies chain straight across, you turn the girl and then
You rollaway and circle left my friend
4 ladies rollaway, you circle and go
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring you know
There were green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
There's cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
The loveliest of all was the unicorn
