Somebody Stole My Gal
Johnnie Ray; Cab Calloway 1918
  (Rawhide 182)   Stan Burdick

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Somebody stole my gal (that's why I'm blue)
Somebody stole my pal (oh, was it you?)

Allemande your corner come right back, dosado
All the men star left once around you go
Turn your partner right to the corner left allemande
Come right back and swing (a nice long swing is grand)
I think that I could die, promenade I'll tell you why
'Cause somebody stole my gal


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Plus, corner progression

Head couples promenade go half (and don't be late)
Come down the middle,
Pass the ocean, ping pong circulate
When you're through, do it again, ping pong circulate
Extend, single hinge (ready to scoot)
Scoot back and then, you'll scoot back again
Partner hinge, roll to face, swing her now and then
*I think that I could die, promenade I'll tell you why
'Cause somebody stole my gal


TAG

Yeah, somebody stole my gal

ALTERNATE LYRICS

*If she could only see, her broken hearted pal
