4 ladies promenade a one time along Gonna run along in and swing and whirl your boy Come on, join hands circle left, go walkin' along Do an allemande left that corner and you weave the ring I'm just a common man, I drive a common van My dog ain't got no pedigree Swing and promenade And if I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way And a common man is what I'll be
FIGURE Mainstream, corner progression
Heads (sides) square thru in the middle it's 4 hands around To the corner of the ring let's do the right & left thru You do a touch 1/4, girls fold, double pass thru Boys do a U-turn back, star thru Boys trade, cast off and you go 3/4 round Boys walk straight across, swing that corner girl and promenade If I have my say, I'm gonna stay that way And a common man is what I'll be
