FIGURE    C4, corner progression

All four ladies chain 3/4 round the ring and turn the girl
Heads roll away with a half sashay I sing
In to the middle do a dosado one time no more
Star thru, split the outside two, make a line of four
All eight do a curlique and boys run right
Dosado the outside two, make an ocean wave tonight
Spin chain thru, now girls circulate
Two times around and when you're through boys run, don't be late
Wheel & deal to face those two, then sweep 1/4 more
Star thru, dive thru, you circle up four
Half way around, right & left thru with the pair you found
Pass thru, star thru, right & left thru once more
Square thru four hands go walking round the shade
Trade by, swing that corner lady, promenade
Oh Cecilia, say that you'll be mine

(Sequence four times thru, twice for heads, twice for sides)

Cecilia
 
 

Now, little Miss Cecilia Green,
A little over sweet sixteen,
But the cutest flapper that you've ever seen;
When the fellows pass her by,
She will always wink her eye,
And when she talks to them, when she walks with them,
This is what they all cry:

Does your mother know you're out, Cecilia?
Does she know that I'm about to steal ya?
Oh my, when I look in your eyes,
Something tells me you and I should get together!

How about a little kiss, Cecilia?
Just a kiss you'll never miss, Cecilia,
Why do we two keep on wasting time?
Oh, Cecilia, say that you'll be mine!

Now, many funny things occur,
And while the boys are courting her,
You see, I refer to one thing in particular,
It seems that she went with a boy named Joe
Who was always lisping so,
And when he'd ask this miss for a little kiss
It would sound just like this:

Doeth your mother know that you're out, Thethilia?
And doeth she know that I'm about to thteal ya, Thethilia?
Oh, my, when I look in your eyeth,
Thomething tellth me that you and I should get together!

And how about a little kith, Thethilia? Thethilia!
Jutht a kith you'll never mith, Thethilia,
Why do we two keep on wathting time?
Oh, Thethilia, thay that you'll be mine!

And does your mother know that you're out, Cecilia?
And does she know that I'm about to steal ya, Cecilia?
Oh, my, when I look in your eyes,
Something tells me you and I should get together!

How about a little kiss, Cecilia?
Just a kiss you'll never miss,
Cecilia, Why do we two keep on wasting time?
Oh, Cecilia, say that you'll be mine!
