OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around that corner, turn the partner by the left
4 ladies star by the right go full around
Turn a partner left, make an allemande thar, the men back in right there
Now slip the clutch, left allemande and weave
Oh I got money, marbles, and chalk, sweetheart
Dosado and promenade with me
Got money to burn and marbles to roll
And enough chalk for you and for me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Now 1 & 3 (2 & 4) you flutter wheel, sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and a dosado that pair
Do a right & left thru the outside two, rollaway with a half sashay
Now box the gnat and you make a right hand star all the way
Go all the way around, the girls turn back, you're gonna swing
You swing that handsome guy and promenade
I'm spending my dough to make the marbles roll
And to make chalk marks all over the door


TAG

Got enough chalk for you and for me

Money, Marbles And Chalk  (1949)

There's an old sayin' that's been all around
I heard it before I could walk
How some's got health and some's got wealth
Others money, marbles and chalk.

I got money, marbles and chalk, sweetheart
But I still feel like I am poor
'Cause my money won't spend
And my marbles won't roll
And my chalk won't write anymore.

While you were near I was happy and gay
Your presence made me feel so proud
But you left me for another one day
Now I feel alone in a crowd.

I got money, marbles and chalk, sweetheart
But I still feel like I am poor
'Cause my money won't spend
And my marbles won't roll
And my chalk won't write anymore.

(spoken:)
You know folks, money is a funny thing, isn't it?
Just like marbles, it rolls both ways; to you and from you
Strange isn't it? how all your friends will pass you by
When you haven't got a dime; When you got money, hah!
There isn't enough chalk in the world to write down
The names of all of your so-called fair-weather friends
Many of us have been up and down many times
And our friends keep rolling back and forth
Just like a handful of marbles on a teeter-totter
And my chalk won't write anymore.

Money, marbles and chalk is all right
For misers who love only gold
But give me a chance to save our romance
For I love you with all of my soul.

I got money, marbles and chalk, sweetheart
But I still feel like I am poor
'Cause my money won't spend
And my marbles won't roll
And my chalk won't write anymore.

I got money, marbles and chalk, sweetheart
But I still feel like I am poor
'Cause my money won't spend
And my marbles won't roll
And my chalk won't write anymore.

Lyrics by Garner "Pop" Eckler.
Recorded by "Pop" Eckler; Patti Page.
