Sash-away your partner,
And on a rock-a-lady,
Back into your partner,
And swing them four hands 'round.
Ladies, do-si-do and gents you know, you know,
First by the right, and back by the left,
And balance to the next.
(Mr. Detherow: "This is repeated until they go plumb around to all the couples. And then the second couple leads through then, and the next time the third couple.")
