You join your hands and circle go round, Mame It's all the way go round that old town, Mame Left allemande and now you can dosado your man *Left allemande and now we're gonna weave to the rhythm of the band You make the weeping willow tree smile, Mame Do a dosado and promenade awhile, Mame You make the old magnolia tree blossom at the mention of your name I think you're just sensational, Mame
*Left allemande and you can weaveright on down to Dixieland
FIGURE Plus, corner progression
Four ladies chain go 'cross that old land, Mame Those heads (sides)square thru just three hands, Mame You cloverleaf and then everybody do a double pass thru Put centers in, cast off 3/4 round will do Star thru, do a dixie grand, Mame You swing that corner girl and promenade, Mame You can make that old magnolia tree blossom at the mention of your name You make me feel alive again, Mame
You came, you saw, you conquered and absolutely nothing was the same You make me feel alive again You swing your girl around my friend I think you're just sensational, Mame...you're just great

You coax the blues right out of the horn, Mame,
You charm the husk right off of the corn, Mame,
You've got the banjoes strummin' and plunkin' out a tune to beat the band,
The whole plantation's hummin' since you brought Dixie back to Dixieland.
You make the cotton easy to pick, Mame.
You give my old mint julep a kick, Mame.
You make the old magnolia tree, blossom at the mention of your name.
You've made us feel alive again, you've given us the drive again.
You make the south revive again, Mame.
You've brought the cake-walk back into style, Mame.
You make the weepin' willow tree smile, Mame.
Your skin is Dixie satin, there's rebel in your manner and your speech.
You may be from Manhattan but Georgia never had a sweeter peach.
You make our black-eyed peas and our grits Mame
Seem like the Sill of Fare at the Ritz, Mame.
You came, you saw, you conquered and absolutely nothing is the same.
Your special fascination'll, prove to be inspirational,
We think you're just sensational Mame.
