Left allemande your corner, promenadeto Herald's Square And now the girls roll back one man and promenade right there Then the heads you wheel around and do the right & left thru Now turn the girls, snap-a-roo And the inside arch and dive thru Pass thru, left allemande, come home with a dosado Dosado and promenade Give my regards to old Broadway And tell 'em that I will soon be there
FIGURE Basic, unknown progression
You walk around your corner, turn your partner left tonight The 2 side ladies chain to the right and turn, hold her tight While the head 2 do a 1/2 square thru and face the sides you know Then dosado go full around, make an ocean wave you know Boys circulate, girls trade, then go right & left thru Pass thru, swing the next, then promenade her too Give my regards to old Broadway And tell 'em that I will soon be there

Did you ever see two Yankees part
Upon a foreign shore,
When the good ship's just about to start
For old New York once more?
With tear-dimmed eye, they say good-bye,
They're friends, without a doubt;
When the man on the pier
Shouts, "Let them clear,"
As the ship strikes out.
Give my regards to Broadway,
Remember me to Herald Square.
Tell all the gang at Forty-second Street
That I will soon be there.
Whisper of how I'm yearning
To mingle with the old-time throng;
Give my regards to old Broadway
And say that I'll be there, e'er long.
Say hello to dear old Coney Isle,
If there you chance to be.
When you're at the Waldorf, have a smile
And charge it up to me.
Mention my name ev'ry place you go,
As 'round the town you roam;
Wish you'd call on my gal,
Now remember, old pal,
When you get back home.
Lyrics by George M. Cohan.
Snap-a-roo is equivalent to a star thru.
