I Want A Girl
Al Jolson; Eddie Cantor; many others 1911
  (FTC 32052)   Paul Hartman

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands form a ring, you circle left now while I sing
About the girl who married dear ol' dad
When you get home it's 1 & 3 (2 & 4) go up to the middle and back you see
Now 2 & 4 (1 & 3) dance forward up and back
Everybody face your partner and bow and give her a swing
You swing the girl and promenade, everybody sing
I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old dad


FIGURE   

The head (side) two ladies face your own you bow to him and across your own
Beside that opposite man you stand and bow to him
The side (head) ladies bow to your man, face to the middle go cross the land
Beside that opposite man bow to him, join all your hands
Circle to the left go moving round you go
Face the lady on the left, swing and promenade you know
I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old dad


TAG

Cause he had money
She married dear ol' dad
