Introduction, break and ending:

Join your hands and make a ring, and circle to the left like everything

(Then) allemande left and promenade your own

(4) While the first and third (second and fourth), you wheel right around,

(4) With a right and left through the couple you found

Turn your girl and do a cross trail through

Allemande left your corner, do-sa-do your own,

(Then) Allemande left just once again and promenade your own

Walk along with your pretty baby, hurry up and swing then maybe

I could always be alone with you


Tag: Then I could always be alone with you


Figure:

(4) First and third (second and fourth), go up and back

(4) (A) full square thru go ‘round that track

(Then) face the sides (heads) and do a right and left through

Turn your girl and dive through, box the gnat and face the middle

Cross trail through and swing that corner girl

(Now the) four little ladies star by the left, it’s once around you roam

Same little girl, you box the gnat, and promenade her home

Walk along with your pretty baby, hurry up and swing then maybe

I could always be alone with you
