A Square Dance


Dance with the girl with auburn hair,
Her pa owns the local livery.
Square up the floor now, pair by pair,
Swing that girl till you're dizzy!

Dance with the boy who just got in,
Been out on his horse a'workin',
All the pretty girls are watchin' him,
He sure got things a'perkin'!

Dance with the girl with coal black eyes,
And a smile so wide and pearly.
All around the floor do dips and dives,
Then take your girl a'twirlin'.

Dance with the fella whose eighty two,
He's still very young and handsome.
Doe-see-doe and winkin' at you,
Out on the floor he's prancin'.

Dance all night, the fiddle's in tune
The upright bass is thumpin'.
Guitar rhythm and a harvest moon,
The new town hall is jumpin'.
