OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across the ring
Rollaway and circle left I sing
4 ladies rollaway, circle and then
Left allemande and weave the ring
I was a day late and a dollar short
Swing the girl and promenade along
All the fish in the creek's been caught
I might as well travel on


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around
Make a right hand star and turn it around
Heads star left inside the ring
Same corner girl, dosado I sing
Star thru, boys scoot back, girls dodge
Swing the girl and promenade along
All the cookies in the store been bought
I might as well travel on


TAG

I might as well travel on

A Day Late And A Dollar Short

Two umbrellas up for sale
Mine will leak it never fails
I dial wrong numbers all the time
And always lose my dime

And with women, naturally
What I've got eyes for can't see me
I set my sights and make my run
And son of a gun

I was a day late and a dollar short
All the sweet cookies in the store been bought
The prize fish in the creek's been caught
Everything choice is gone
Might as well travel on

He took a job down Florida way
Got hijacked to C U B A
When I got back, no job, no dough
Just goes to show

That I'm a day late and a dollar short
All the sweet cookies in the store been bought
The prize fish in the creek's been caught
Everything choice is gone
Might as well travel on

A day late and a dollar short
All the sweet cookies in the store been bought
The prize fish in the creek's been caught
Everything choice is gone
Might as well travel on

A day late and a dollar short
All the sweet cookies in the store been bought
The prize fish in the creek's been caught
Everything choice is gone
Might as well travel on

A day late and a dollar short

Lyrics by Mack David and Mike Curb.
Recorded by Donnie & Marie Osmond.
