FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade half
Walk in and square thru 4 hands around
Go all the way and a right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, touch 1/4 then
Scoot back and go, that corner swing
You swing that girl and promenade around the ring
We didn't start the fire
It was always burning, since the world's been turnin'

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it, but we tried to fight it

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it, but we tried to fight it
