OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Oh, I am the official historian on Shirley Jean Barrell
I've known her since God only knows and I won't tell
I caught her the first time she stumbled and fell
And Shirley, she knows me just as well


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) you promenade, go halfway round the ring
Come down the middle and square thru, get 4 hands I sing
Square thru 3/4 with the outside pair and then
Trade by, take your time, you're going to curlique my friend
Scoot back and now swing the corner girl
Swing that lady round and you promenade the world
*I caught her the first time she stumbled and fell
The only thing I don't know is where she is right now


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I've known her since God only knows and I won't tell
And Shirley, she knows...


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I can tell you her favorite song and where she likes to park
And why to this very day she's scared of the dark
How she got her nickname, and the scar behind her knee


CLOSER   

I can tell you her birthday and her Daddy's middle name
The uncles on her Mama's side and ones they don't claim
What she got for Christmas since 1952
That's only the beginning of the things I could tell you
