I Want A Girl
Al Jolson; Eddie Cantor; many others 1911
  (Top 25208)   Paul Hartman

BREAK    Basic

All 4 ladies chain the ring
Circle left now while I sing
About the girl who married dear old Dad
Roll the girl a 1/2 sashay
And circle left in the same old way
Roll away and then you weave the ring
And when you meet a good old fashioned girl with heart so true
Dosado your honey and she'll promenade with you and sing
I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head two couples promenade
Halfway round there with your maid
Lead to the right and circle to a line
In lines of 4 go up to the middle and back
Right & left thru across the track
*Two ladies chain and keep in time
Send them back a dixie style and balance, all 8 circulate
Allemande left a new corner
Come back and promenade, sing
I want a girl just like the girl that married dear old Dad


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

*Turn the girl and then star thru
Go right & left thru and then you pass thru once more
Swing the corner girl and promenade the floor, sing


TAG (suggestions)

Cause he had money, married dear old Dad

And am I happy, married dear old Dad

She wasn't kidding, married dear old Dad
