Allemande left your corner and you weave around the floor I've seen the sights I've had delights on every foreign shore Dosado when you meet and promenade once more I'll them right Sides face grand square Give me a home among the gum trees, with lots of plum trees A sheep or two and a kangaroo Clothes lines out the back, Verandah out the front And an old rocking chair
FIGURE Basic, unknown progression
Head two ladies chain across, you turn the girl around Heads will promenade halfway around and now Sides right & left thru, turn the girl and then Side two ladies chain across the ring Join up hands, circle left, around the ring I say Corner lady swing and then you promenade When my mates all ask me where's the place that I adore I tell them right away
Heads square thru go four hands around Round the corner lady, dosado and now Swing thru and then spin the top you do Boys move up and then go right & left thru Square thru three hands, walking round the ring Swing the corner girl, let's promenade I sing Clothes lines out the back and Verandah out the front And an old rocking chair
Head two couples promenade halfway round the ring Down the middle, pass the ocean and then extend Swing thru two by two, the boys run right Half tag, follow your neighbor, spread Ladies trade, recycle one time around Swing the corner lady and you promenade the ring Clothes lines out the back and Verandah out the front And an old rocking chair
And an old rocking chair And an old rocking chair
