Walk around your corner, see saw your taw
Men star by the right now, go walkin' round the hall
Allemande your corner, gonna dosado your own
Face your corner, star thru, circle don't you roam
Now whirlaway, grand right & left round that ole ring
When you meet your partner, gonna promenade again
Promenade round with that ole china doll

Face the sides, swing thru, hey when you're all through
You'll turn thru and look for the corner, go left allemande
Pass one, promenade, go walkin' round the land

Star thru, pass thru, swing the corner man
Promenade round with that ole china doll

Limehouse Blues

And those weird China blues
Never go away
Sad, mad blues
For all the while they seem to say

Oh, Limehouse kid
Oh, oh, Limehouse kid
Goin' the way
That the rest of them did
Poor broken blossom
And nobody's child
Haunting and taunting
You're just kind of wild

Oh, Limehouse blues
I've the real Limehouse blues
Can't seem to shake off
Those real China blues
Rings on your fingers
And tears for your crown
That is the story
Of old Chinatown

Rings on your fingers
And tears for your crown
That is the story
Of old Chinatown

Composed by Phillip Braham.
Lyrics by Douglas Furber.
