OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Join hands circle to the left go walkin' round the set
Do an allemande left with your left hand and you weave around the land
Go in and out around you go, gonna meet a little girl do a dosado
Once around the girl and then, men star left you know
Once around the ring you go, turn a right hand round that partner Joe
You do an allemande left with your left hand, promenade go round the
land
Oh honeycomb be my baby, oh honeycomb be my own
*Hey swing and whirl that pretty little girl, that's honeycomb

Four ladies chain that town, turn the girl with an arm around

Gonna get to the corner dosado all the way around to a wave you know

Honeycomb  (1957)

Well it's a darn good life, and it's kinda funny
How the Lord made the bee, and the bee made the honey
And the honey bee looking for a home
And he called it a honeycomb

And they roamed the world and they gathered all
Of the honey into one sweet ball
And the honeycomb from a million trips
Made my baby's lips

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

And the Lord said now that I've made a bee
I'm gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And he made a little tree and I guess you heard
Oh, then well he made a little bird

And they waited all around till the end of spring
Getting every note that the birdies sing
And they put 'em all in to one sweet tone
For my honeycomb

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

And the Lord said now that I've made a bird
I'm gonna look all around for a little old word
That sounds about sweet like a turtledove
And I guess I'm gonna call it love

And they waited all around till the end of spring
Getting every note that the birdies sing
And they put 'em all in to one sweet tone
For my honeycomb

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

Lyrics by Bob Merrill.
Recorded by Jimmie Rodgers.
