OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade inside the ring
Come home and swing your man
Join hands and circle left around you go
Left allemande, weave the ring
It's just a kooky little melody
Dosado and promenade for me
Ja-da, ja-da, ja-da ja-da jing jing jing...


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads go up and back and then square thru 4 hands around you go
Go right & left thru and turn your girl
You'll do a dosado
Star thru and flutter wheel and when you do
Reverse the flutter, keep this girl and promenade her too
Ja-da, ja-da, ja-da ja-da jing jing jing...


SEQUENCE (Opener, figure twice for heads, break, figure twice for sides, closer)

You've heard all about your raggy melodies
Everything from opera down to harmony
But I've a little song that I will sing to you
It's going to win you through and through

There ain't much to the words but the music is grand
And you'll be singing it to beat the band
Now you've heard of your will-o'-the-wisp
But give a listen to this, it goes:
Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!
Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

That's a funny little bit of melody,
It's so soothing and appealing to me,
It goes Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!
Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

Now everyone was singing a Hawaiian 'frain
Everyone seemed to have it on their brain
When yaka-hiki hula-do was all the craze
Why that's the one that had 'em dazed.

The object now is for something new
Something that will appeal to you
And here's a little melody that you will find
Will linga-linger there on your mind, it goes:
Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!
Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

That's a funny little bit of melody,
It's so soothing and appealing to me,
It goes Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!
(Now everybody) Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

That's a funny little bit of melody,
It's so soothing and appealing to me,
It goes Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!
Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

That's a funny little bit of melody,
It's so soothing and appealing to me,
It goes Ja-Da, Ja-Da,
Ja-Da, Ja-Da, jing-jing-jing!

Lyrics by Bob Carleton.
