4 ladies gonna chain straight across that old ring
Hey roll away and circle to the left around I sing
Hey roll away and circle to the left you go round
Allemande left and buddy weave around that old town
Hey weave it in and out until you meet your maid
Hey dosado your lady and then you promenade
Hey promenade your lady and wouldn't it be great
If only she could square dance like her sister Kate

(*BRIDGE: Allemande left your corner and bow to your own)

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.
