OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

And now the four little ladies promenade
Inside that big ole ring
Now dosado your own right there
The gents star right around the ring
Now see saw your partner, boys
Go all the way around
Now allemande left your corner
Grand ole right & left around
They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
Now dosado her and promenade go two by two
Cause I could never be a poor boy
If I could swing with a dolly like you


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

Heads ladies chain across the hall
Now chain 'em left and don't you fall
Left allemande that corner girl
Now swing your own, let's have a ball
You join hands and circle left
And make a great big ring
The girls roll away with a half sashay
Now weave around the ring
They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
Now dosado her and promenade go two by two
Cause I could never be a poor boy
If I could swing with a dolly like you

Poor Boy
 
 

They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
But I ain't lonesome and I ain't blue
'Cause I could never be a poor boy
As long as I've got a dolly like you

Ain't got a crust, ain't got a cent
Can't buy a jug, can't pay the rent
I got a heartfull of dreams
And a lot of memories
And that's enough for me

Can't buy a house, can't buy a lot
Ain't got a bean, I ain't got a pot
But what I got is a heartfull of
Love and memories
And that's enough for me

Don't have a pig, don't have a cow
I don't have a horse to pull a plow
But what I got is a heartfull of
Love and memories
And that's enough for me

Lyrics by Vera Matson.
Recorded by Elvis Presley.
