All four ladies chain go straight across that ring Chain the ladies back, dopaso, partner left Turn the corners by the right, turn the partner left Put the head ladies center with a teacup chain and go Well you made life cheery when yo called me dearie 'Twas down where the green grass grows Your lips were sweeter than julep when you wore a tulip And I wore a big red rose
FIGURE Plus, corner progression
Head two couples promenade halfway around the ring Down the middle and pass the ocean there, extend Do a linear cycle now, move on along somehow Pass thru with a partner trade and roll, then right & left grand Grand right and left around, when you meet that lady Swing the corner girl and promenade Your lips were sweeter than julep when you wore a tulip And I wore a big red rose
Yes, I wore a big red rose

When you wore a tulip,
A sweet yellow tulip,
And I wore a big red rose,
When you caressed me,
'twas then Heaven blessed me,
What a blessing, no one knows,
You made life cheery,
When you called me dearie,
'Twas down where the blue grass grows,
Your lips were sweeter than julep,
When you wore that tulip,
And I wore a big red rose.
