OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well, dosado with the corner girl,
Turn left hand round your own
Go all the way around and 4 little ladies chain
Put them on the right when they get there,
Left allemande the corner there
Weave by 2. Promenade your girl and sing
I've got the money, marbles and chalk, sweetheart
The 4 gents star by the left, go once around
Come back and you dosado, step up and swing her Joe
You've got the money, marbles, and chalk


FIGURE   

Head (side) couples 1/2 sashay,
Dance up and back that way
Pass thru Separate. Walk around 2
Box the gnat in your back door. Back up, make lines of 4
Go forward and back, pass thru and u turn back
Ends only - star thru, back right out is what you do
Swing that corner, promenade her too
Promenade around the bend (you go)
Her money (marbles) won't spend (roll)
And her chalk don't write no more

Money, Marbles And Chalk
 
 

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.
