OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

You circle left go round that ring
Reverse back go single file and then
Girls backtrack go once around that land
Turn thru, left allemande then weave the land
*Cab driver, drive by Mary's place
Dosado and then you promenade
Don't stop the meter, let it race
Cab driver, drive by Mary's place


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round that square
Sides pass thru and cloverleaf out there
Heads pass thru you'll dosado and then
Make an ocean wave and swing thru my friend
Girls trade, you turn thru
Left allemande your corner, promenade
**I just want a chance to see her face
Cab drive, drive by Mary's place


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Cab driver, once more round the block
Dosado and promenade her pop
I only wish we could have had a talk
Cab driver, once more round the block


*Cab driver, better take me home
Dosado and promenade your own
I guess that I was meant to be alone
Cab driver, better take me home


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides promenade halfway round that square
Heads pass thru and cloverleaf out there
Sides pass thru you'll dosado and then
Make an ocean wave and swing thru my friend
Girls trade, well now, you turn thru
Left allemande your corner, promenade
**Never mind the ticking of the clock
Cab driver, once more round the block

Cab Driver
 
 

Cab driver, drive by Mary's place
I'd like to have a chance to see her face
Please don't stop the meter, let it race
Cab driver, drive by Mary's place

Cab driver, once more 'round the block
Never mind the ticking of the clock
I only wish we could have had a talk
Cab driver, once more 'round the block

Cab driver, once more down the street
There's the little place we use to meet
That's where I laid my future at her feet
Cab driver, once more down the street

Cab driver, a-wait here by the door
Perhaps I'll hold her in my arms once more
Then, things will be just like they were before
Cab driver, wait here by the door

Cab driver, better take me home
I guess that, I was meant to be alone
I hope God sends me another one of my own
Cab driver, better take me home

Cab driver, better take me home

Lyrics by C. Carson Parks.
Recorded by The Mills Brothers (1968).
