Sides face, grand square *I've got a real important job in a fancy hotel Ridin' people up and down in a elevator I've got a '57 Cadillac with a busted tail light Burned out valves and a leaky radiator Do an allemande left with the corner girl Turn the partner by the right Left allemande, you swing and promenade But I've got somethin' to brag about, somethin' to brag about Somethin' to brag about with you
FIGURE Basic, corner progression
Well heads promenade and go 'bout halfway around that ring Walk down the middle and a right & left thru And you turn that lady go round Square thru 4 in the middle, 'gonna muddle in the middle To the tune of the fiddle And step right to the corner dosado one time you go Swing thru, boys you'll trade and then Swing that corner and you'll promenade But I've got somethin' to brag about, somethin' to brag about Somethin' to brag about with you
*Well I'm a short order cook at an all night cafe Down on Eighteenth Avenue and Twelfth Street I wear a swingin' mini dress that I made for myself From mema's kitchen curtains and old bed sheets
*So let's get married in the not too distant future We'll rent a little flat on Twenty-Ninth Street You know we'll hang out our washin' On a clothesline from the window We'll feast on cornbread, butter beans and lunch meat
