OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

You walk around the corner lady, see saw your girl
All join hands, circle left round the world
The men star right once around tonight
Allemande left your corner and weave the ring
In and out around, when you meet your girl you swing
Swing your girl around and promenade the ring
Now it may be late, but I'll be great
When I can shimmy like my sister Kate


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway around you go
Down the middle with a right & left thru
Turn the girl you know (backaway)
Sides square thru 4 hands and go
Meet your corner lady dosado
Swing thru and then, the boys you trade
Swing your corner girl and all promenade
Now it may be late, but I'll be great
When I can shimmy like my sister Kate

I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate

I went to a dance with my sister Kate
Everybody there thought she danced so great
I realized a thing or two
When I got wise to something new

When I looked at Kate, she was in a trance
And then I knew it was in her dance
All the boys are going wild
Over sister Katie's style

Oh, I wish I could I shimmy like my sister Kate
She shimmies like a jelly on a plate
My mama wanted to know last night
What makes the boys think Kate's so nice

Now all the boys in the neighborhood
They know that she can shimmy and it's understood
I know that I'm late, but I'll be up-to-date
When I shimmy like my sister Kate
I mean, when I shimmy like my sister Kate

Now I can shimmy like my sister Kate
I know that I'm real late
I think I'll do a real shimmy dance
Dancing like my sister Kate
Sweet papa, just like my sister Kate

Lyrics by Clarence Williams and Armand J. Piron.
Recorded by Fats Waller; many others.
