(Triple allemande)
Allemande left and the ladies star
The gents go round but not too far
Allemande left and the four gents star
The gals go round but not too far
Allemande left with the old left hand
A right to your partner, right & left grand
Hand over hand till you meet your maid
Just take her by the hand and promenade
All sing
She's too old, too old, too old to cut the mustard any more


FIGURE   

Ladies to the center and back to the bar
Gents to the center with a right hand star
Turn the opposite gal like an allemande thar
And the boys back up in a right hand star
Throw in the clutch and you put 'er in low
It's twice around that ring you go
Skip your own and on you go
Meet the next for a dopaso
Partners left with a left hand around
Corners all with the right hand around
Partners left with the arm around
You promenade, go round the town
All sing
Too old, too old, too old to cut the mustard any more

(repeat the figure, alternating ladies and gents)

Too Old To Cut The Mustard
 
 

When I was young I had lots of pep,
I could get around I didn't need no help.
But since I'm old and a-gettin' gray,
The people look at me and say....

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

I used to could jump just like a deer,
But now I need a new landing gear.
I used to could jump a picket fence,
But now I'm lucky if I jump an inch.

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

When I was young I had an automobile,
I'd scoot myself right under the wheel.
I had to fight the gals off with a stick,
But now they say, "Oh, he makes me sick"

Too old, too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.
He's a-gettin' too old, he's done got too old,
He's too old to cut the mustard anymore.

Lyrics by Bill Carlisle.
Recorded by Dick Todd; Ernest Tubb; Marlene Dietrich and Rosemary Clooney.
