Walk around your corner, see saw your partner
The men star by the right, once around from where you are
Turn your partner by the left and the corner by the right
The men wheel in and make a wrong way thar
Yes, you back right up, then slip the clutch
Grand right & left you go
Hand over hand until you meet, then promenade her home
Tomatoes are cheaper, potatoes are cheaper
Now's the time to fall in love

FIGURE    A1, R-H lady progression

Now 1 & 3 go right & left thru
Turn your girl and square thru 4 hands around that ring you do
And then you dosado the outside two (ready with a right hand)
Swing thru, then spin the top without a stop
Go right & left thru and turn the girl
Cross trail across the ring
Allemande left, come back, now promenade and sing
Tomatoes are cheaper, potatoes are cheaper
Now's the time to fall in love

Now's the Time to Fall in Love (Potatoes Are Cheaper, Tomatoes Are Cheaper)

Potatoes are cheaper
Tomatoes are cheaper
Now's the time
To fall in love

Why, the butcher, the baker,
And the candlestick maker
All gave their price
A downward shove

bzzzz ... boom

Grab yourself someone
To fry your eggs and bacon
Why, she can live just like a queen
On what you're makin'

'Cause this and that's a lot cheaper
And a flat's a lot cheaper
So, Honey, now's the time
To fall in love

(British English)

Potatoes are reduced in price
Tomatoes cost considerably less
Now's the time
To jolly well, ah, fall in love

There's many a spinster
In good old Westminster
Who's looking for
A blooming turtle dove, ah, ah, ah, ah

In America they drink
This beastly coffee
Wed an English lass
And 'ave your tea and toffee

King George expects every marriage
To fill up a carriage
So, now's the time
To jolly well fall in love

Lyrics by Al Sherman and Al Lewis.
Recorded by Eddie Cantor; Ben Selvin.
