[FADE IN on a clean-shaven fiddler and a bald guitar player with glasses and a long beard. ZOOM OUT to show a country street set with the musicians and the caller standing in a wagon. He wears a black cowboy hat and a long dark suit with a skinny black tie. Eight dancers in old-fashioned dresses and western-style shirts swing arm-in-arm on the floor.]
Bow to your girlie, now, curtsy to your man,
Step right up and grab her by the hand,
Now, swing that gal in the fancy clothes,
Circle round and pull her nose!
[laughing maniacally] Ah, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!
Caller: Grab hands, circle chain![The dancers all join hands and dance around in a circle.]
Granny doubles bourbon, preacher hits the gin,
Sock it up to Johnny and kick him in the shin!
Promenade! All right!
Promenade uptown, sultry hops,
Wind up your dukes and belt her in the chops!
Ladies, wheel on around and back to your place,
Knock him to the ground, stomp on his face!
Gentlemen, on your feet now, aaaaaaaaaand…
Gallivant right with the gal you like best,
Step right up and rip her dress!
Doe-see-doe, fly higher and higher,
Pull out your pistols and open fire!!
