Circle left
*There's a little girl in our neighborhood
Her name is Charlotte Johnson and she's really lookin' good

Allemande on the corner, turn your partner by the right
Allemande on the corner then you weave around the ring
...And we were swingin'
...Yeah, we were swingin'
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe it started on the front porch in the swing


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Her brother was on the sofa eatin' chocolate pie
Her momma was in the kitchen cuttin' chicken up to fry


*Now Charlotte is my lover she's the apple of my eye
When I'm on the swing with her it makes me almost high


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru and count to four hands around you go
'round my corner girl you dosado and go
Swing thru tonight, spin the top all right
Boys move up and a right & left thru and turn the girl tonight
You wanna square thru 3
Swing your corner lady then you promenade
Little Charlotte she's as pretty as the angels when they sing
I can't believe it started on the front porch in the swing

Swingin'
 
 

There's a little girl in our neighborhood,
Her name is Charlotte Johnson and she's really lookin' good.
I had to go and see her, so I called her on the phone,
I walked over to her house, and this was goin' on.

Her brother was on the sofa eatin' chocolate pie,
Her Momma was in the kitchen cuttin' chicken up to fry.
Daddy was in the backyard rollin' up a garden hose.
I was on the porch with Charlotte feelin' love down to my toes.

And we were swingin'. (Swingin'.)
Yes, we were swingin'. (Swingin'.)
Little Charlotte, she's as pretty as the angels when they sing.
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in this swing,
Just a-swingin'. (Swingin', yeah.)

And we'll be swingin'. (Swingin'.)
Yes, we'll be swingin'. (Swingin'.)
Little Charlotte, she's as pretty as the angels when they sing.
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in this swing,
Just a-swingin'. (Swingin', yeah.)

Now, Charlotte's she's a darlin', she's the apple of my eye.
And when I'm on the swing with her it makes me almost high.
And Charlotte is my lover and she has been since the spring,
I just can't believe it started on her front porch in this swing.

Just a-swingin'. (Swingin'.)
Well, just a-swingin'. (Swingin'.)
Little Charlotte, she's as pretty as the angels when they sing.
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in this swing,
Just a-swingin'. (Swingin', yeah.)

I said, little Charlotte, she's as pretty as the angels when they sing.
I can't believe I'm out here on her front porch in this swing,
Just a-swingin'. (Swingin', yeah.)
(Swingin'.)

Lyrics by John Anderson and Lionel Delmore.
