Sides face, grand square *I'm gonna tell you folks a story 'Bout a Harper Valley widowed wife She had a teenaged daughter That attended Harper Valley Junior High Left allemande your corner, dosado your own And swing and promenade Just like the day my momma socked it to the Harper Valley PTA
FIGURE Basic, corner progression
Well the head 2 couples dosado And square thru and get me 4 hands round You star by the right and come back in Star by the left and turn it one time round You swing thru and the boys run And wheel and deal, and swing and promenade Just like the day my momma socked it to the Harper Valley PTA
*Well it happened that the PTA was gonna meet that very afternoon And they were sure surprised when Mrs. Johnson wore her mini-skirt into the room
*Well Mr. Harper couldn't be here 'cause he stayed too long at Kelly's Bar again And if you smell Shirley Thompson's breath you'll find she's had a little nip of gin.
