OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 little ladies chain 3/4 around
Join hands and circle left around that town
Whirlaway 1/2 sashay, circle left that way
Allemande left and a grand old right & left
They used to call her Mary
Dosado and then you promenade
They took the "R" out of Mary
Now they call her May


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

4 little ladies chain 3/4 around
Turn and chain 'em straight across that ole town
Head 2 couples square thru 4 hands you know
Get to the corner dosado
Swing thru two by two
Boys trade, turn thru
Corner swing and promenade
They used to call her Mary
But now they call her May

They Used To Call Her Mary (Now They Call Her Ma) Lyrics ID: 2940

They used to call her Mary
But then they took the "R" away
She wanted to be a flapper, you see
With a cute little name like May

A young man came romancin'
And in a year they called him "Pa"
So, they took the "Y" away from May
And now they call her "Ma"

They used to call her Mary
But then they took the "R" away
She wanted to be a flapper, you see
With a cute little name like May

A young man came romancin'
And in a year they called him "Pa"
So, they took the "Y" away from May
And now they call her,
What do they call her?
Now they call her "Ma"

Lyrics by Bill Sellers.
Recorded by Peter Sellers; Nelson and the Mandelas; Jimmy Roselli.
