OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
She said you're a living legend, I said thank you kindly, ma'am
She said don't be so smug, I don't mean good
I said I beg your pardon, I just don't understand
She said that's all right, I never thought you would

4 ladies chain now, turn the girl and then
Chain 'em home and roll promenade with me
Cause she was a torpedo and when she exploded
I closed my eyes and sank beneath the sea


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head 2 couples promenade halfway around the square
Come down the middle and do that curlique, walk & dodge
Swing thru the outside two, those boys run to the right
Bend the line and do the right & left thru
Flutter wheel, now sweep 1/4, pass thru and
swing the corner there, promenade
Cause she was a torpedo and I was her target
So I closed my eyes and sank beneath the square


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Circle to the left
She said I'd like to know you better, I said honey here I am
She said don't move so fast, I'm kind of shy

Do the allemande left with the corner, weave the ring
Cause she was a torpedo and I was her tanker
Do a dosado and promenade with me
Yes, she was a torpedo and when she exploded
I closed my eyes and sank beneath the sea


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
She said she'd never leave me and she'd treat me like a king
I told her that I'd love her all my life
She took me to the cleaners, then she drove me up the wall
She borrowed my last dime and called my wife

4 ladies chain now, turn the girl and then
Chain 'em home and roll promenade with me
Cause she was a torpedo and when she exploded
I closed my eyes and sank beneath the sea
