OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Well now you bow and then you swing your baby high and low
Allemande left the corner, your partner dosado
Ladies make a left hand star, go once around the set
Get back home and box the gnat, then a grand ol' right & left
They call her pussy cat, oh pussy cat
When you meet her promenade
Take her home and twirl her out, then dosado your maid
Swing with the corners all, and a little bit more than that
Allemande left, I'll tell you why, pass your partner right on by
And swing at home with pussy cat, meow


FIGURE   

Walk all around that corner girl, your partner dopaso
Left hand turn with partners, your corners right hand go
Partner left, the men star right, straight across the ring
To a left hand whirl, find the corner, box the gnat and then
You pull her by, swing the right hand lady, swing her high and low
Corners left, go full around, just like a dopaso
New corner right, new partner left, roll promenade you know
That pretty little girl with the turned up nose, freckled face and I suppose
That's why they call her pussy cat, meow


ALTERNATE PROMENADE PATTER

Walk with her, she'll coo and purr, with a milky skin like silky fur
Cue Sheet side B
 

FIGURE (4 times)    A2, no progression

Dosado your corner, turn your partner left hand
While the ladies star, the gentlemen promenade
And the second time you meet, you swat the flea there
Then the gentlemen star right, the ladies promenade
Pass your partner, allemande the corner lady, weave the ring
In and out you go until you meet your maid
Dosado and promenade around the ringo
Get on home

Sides face, grand square
Walk, 2, 3, turn, walk 2, 3, turn
Walk, 2, 3, turn, walk 2, 3, reverse
Walk, 2, 3, turn, walk 2, 3, turn
Walk, 2, 3, turn, heads right & left thru

The sides you promenade around the ringo
1/2 way round, and then 4 ladies wanta chain
Turn her left and promenade, you lucky fella
When you're home, you get to swing with Rosabella


TAG

Turn her under and then you bow to Rosabella

Pussy cat, pussy cat
Pussy cat, pussy cat

Well, I was born in a little old house in a town called Barrel Bay
I was eight years old when I fell in love and and it seems like yesterday
Down the old mill road in a pretty house lived some folks not far from me
And they had a child only one year old and a lovely babe to see

They called her Pussy Cat
Puss, Puss, Pussy Cat
For her hair was soft and fine
Pussycat, Puss, Puss, Pussy Cat
For her two big eyes would shine
She had a smile so sweet and a great deal more than that
And she'd coo and purr when I smiled at her with a milky skin like silky fur
My Puss, Puss, Puss, Puss
Pussy Cat

Now, the years went by and I grew quite tall, for I shot up like a vine
And I used to watch old Pussy Cat till she reached the age of nine
Then I said goodbye for I left one year, for a town in Iowa
And I didn't see anyone I knew 'til I came back one fine day
They called her Pussy Cat
Puss, Puss, Pussy Cat
For her hair was soft and fine
Pussycat, Puss, Puss, Pussy Cat
For her two big eyes would shine
She had a smile so sweet and a great deal more than that
And she'd coo and purr when I smiled at her with a milky skin like silky fur
My Puss, Puss, Puss, Puss
Pussy Cat

Well, there she was like a pretty rose and my goodness, how she'd grown
But the sparkling eyes and the turned-up nose looked the same though years had flown
Then I knew at once she belonged to me and I knew she felt the same
So our lives were joined and our first new-born was a girl who bore her name

They called her Pussy Cat
Puss, Puss, Pussy Cat
For her hair was soft and fine
Pussycat, Puss, Puss, Pussy Cat
For her two big eyes would shine
She had a smile so sweet and a great deal more than that
And she'd coo and purr when I smiled at her with a milky skin like silky fur
My Puss, Puss, Puss, Puss
Pussy Cat

Puss, Puss, Puss, Puss
Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat

Lyrics by Tom Glazer and Sunny Skylar.
Recorded by Ames Brothers.
