INTRO

Hi dee deedle deedle di di dum
Di di deedle di doo
Hi d'lee, di d'lee, di d'loodle di d'low

(SFGS)

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Uncle Benny never had a penny, only had his old banjo
Never had a job, never earned a bob, always free to come and go
He played the banjo gaily, boys, for anyone he'd meet
Benny was a fellow who could sweep girls off their feet

Circle left
He'd set their toes a-tapping with his songs
Left allemande your corner and you promenade along
There was Michael Flynn played violin while Clancy played the flute
Tommy McManis gave the old cornet a toot


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands from where you are
With the sides (heads) make a right hand star
Heads (sides) star left in the center, back to the smiling two
Do the right & left thru and turn that girl
Swing thru and then, swing thru again
Swing the lady there and promenade
He played the banjo happily for anyone he'd meet
Benny was a fellow who could sweep girls off their feet

Uncle Benny
 
 

Die-dee-dee-dee-dee, die-die-dum
Dee-die-die, dee-dee-dee-dum
Dee-die-die-die-die, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee
Dee-die-die, dee-dee-dee-dum

Uncle Benny never had a penny, only had his old banjo
Never had a job, never earned a bob, always free to come and go
He'd play the banjo gaily, boys, for anyone he'd meet
Benny was a fellow who could sweep girls off their feet

He'd set their toes a-tapping with his songs
Making friends who'd join him as he slowly strolled along
There was Michael Flynn played violin, while Clancey played the flute
And Tommy McMannis gave the old cornet a toot

Uncle Benny never had a penny, only had his old banjo
Fat around the middle, always on the fiddle, no one ever seemed to know
In the clubs and the pubs around the town, up and down the street
Benny was a fellow who could sweep girls off their feet

He'd set their toes a-tapping with his songs
Making friends who'd join him as he slowly strolled along
There was Jack McBates who played the bass, while Danny played the drum
And everybody watching would clap their hands and hum

(Hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm...)

Uncle Benny never had a penny, only had his old banjo
Singing at the fair, silver in his hair, Uncle Benny had to go
He failed it on a high note, Benny's final show
And I never knew what happened to Benny's old banjo

Uncle Benny never had a penny, only had his old banjo
Uncle Benny never had a penny, only had his old banjo
Uncle Benny
