OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight
Men star right roll it one time tonight
Left allemande, weave the ring
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway round the ring,
Walk in pass the ocean, extend
Swing thru, spin the top, boy move up, single hinge
Scoot back now, the boy run right
Swing the girl around, you promenade
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling
The lion sleeps tonight

In the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight
Men star right roll it one time tonight
Left allemande, weave the ring
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight

(Optional falsetto lyric after Left Allemande & Weave)
