Circle left
I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad

Allemande left the corner, dosado your own
Allemande left the corner, weave the ring
A good old-fashioned girl with a heart so true
Swing your partner, promenade and sing
I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad


FIGURE (twice for the heads, twice for the sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you know
Around the corner dosado
Swing thru two by two, boys run right
Ferris wheel now center two pass thru
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 round
Swing the corner, promenade and sing
I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad

I Want A Girl (Just Like the Girl That Married Dear Old Dad)  (1911)

When I was a boy
My mother often said to me,
Get married boy, and see,
How happy you will be.

I have looked all over,
But no girlie can I find,
Who seems to be just like
The little girl I have in mind.

I will have to look around
Until the right one I have found....

I want a girl just like the girl
That married dear old dad!
She was a pearl and the only girl
That daddy ever had.

Composed by Harry Von Tilzer.
Lyrics by Will Dillon.
Recorded by Al Jolson; Eddie Cantor; many others.
