Seventy-six trombones led the big parade With a hundred and ten cornets close at hand Men star rightone time, find the corner girl Left allemande this lady, then box the gnat at home Four ladies promenade one time inside the set Swing this handsome man, then you all promenade Well I modestly took my place as the one and only bass And I oom-pah, oom-pah, oom-pah-pah'ed the square
FIGURE Mainstream, corner progression
Heads pass thru and do a partner trade for me Then you touch 1/4, let the boys run right Swing thru and then you all swing thru again When you finish all 8 circulate one place Single hinge and then scoot back right there This corner lady swing and promenade the ring Promenade around the ring, take that lady home I sing While seventy-six trombones play the square
