OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

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


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*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

Something To Brag About
 
 

(Man)
I've got a real important job
In a large office buildin'
Ridin' people in an elevator

I drive a '57 Chevrolet
With busted tail lights
Burned out valves
And a leaky radiator

I wear a twenty dollar suit
I bought from J.C. Penney's
Back in 1962

But I've got somethin' to brag about
Somethin' to brag about, yes
Somethin' to brag about in you

(Woman)
I'm a short-order cook
At an all night cafe
Down on 18th Avenue and 12th Street

I wear a swingin' mini dress
That I made for myself
From Mama's kitchen curtains
And old bed sheets

I've got 17 pages
Of Top Value stamps
And one old pair of shoes

But I've got somethin' to brag about
Somethin' to brag about
Somethin' to brag about in you

When you're with the fellas, I know
You start braggin' 'bout
My hourglass figure
And my big brown eyes

(Man)
You tell your girlfriends 'bout my
Good, good lovin'
And that's one pleasure that
Money can't buy

(both)
So let's get married
In the not-too-distant future
We'll rent a little flat on 29th Street

You know we'll hang our washin'
On the clothesline from the window
We'll feast on cornbread, butter beans and lunch meat

We won't have a thermostat
A big, long Cadillac
But we'll have a love that's true

(Man)
And I'll have somethin' to brag about
(Woman)
Yeah and I'll have, somethin' to brag about
(both)
Yeah, somethin' to brag about in you

Lyrics by Bobby Braddock.
Recorded by Charlie Louvin and Melba Montgomery; Mary Kay Place and Willie Nelson; Tammy Wynette and George Jones.
