OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across, you turn that girl around and
Rollaway, circle left and then
4 ladies rollaway, you circle left and then
Allemande left and weave the land
A dear old fashioned girl with heart so true
Swing your partner, promenade her too
I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) couples promenade go halfway around that ring
Walk in and do the right & left thru
You flutter wheel across the floor, sweep 1/4 more
And then pass thru, go right & left thru
Swing thru and then all the boys run right
1/2 tag the line, swing that corner, promenade
I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

4 ladies chain
Heads promenade halfway
Sides pass the ocean
Ping pong circulate
Extend
Explode the wave
Chase right
Swing the corner, promenade
I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad


TAG

That married dear old dad

I Want A Girl (Just Like the Girl That Married Dear Old Dad)
 
 

When I was a boy
My mother often said to me,
Get married boy, and see,
How happy you will be.

I have looked all over,
But no girlie can I find,
Who seems to be just like
The little girl I have in mind.

I will have to look around
Until the right one I have found....

I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad!
She was a pearl and the only girl
That daddy ever had.

Composed by Harry Von Tilzer.
Lyrics by Will Dillon.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Eddie Cantor; many others.
