4 ladies promenade go once inside the land Now box the gnat and do the dosado Why don't you join hands circle to the left go walking round Left allemande ole corner, weave the ring Big Mable Murphy, she loved little Melvin Swing that girl around and promenade *He would try to take over and sass Big Mable And her great big fist would black little Melvin's eye
*Yes poor little Melvin woke up every morning With 2 black eyes and knucklebumps on his head
*They say little Melvin got wild on bathtub gin And it made him grow to almost twice his size
*Now Mable whispers oh I'd give anything If once more I could black little Melvin's eye
FIGURE Basic, corner progression
Those heads square thru 4 hands around you go And meet ole corner lady, dosado Why don't you swing thru and then 2 boys trade again Now box the gnat and do the right & left thru Dive thru and square thru 3/4 round you go Swing the corner girl and promenade *Big Mable Murphy, she loved little Melvin But he never could learn to do just what she said
