Mayyybe this version of Barnacle Bill:
Two head la---dies cross the floor
Two side la---dies do the same
Honor to--- the one you lost
Honor to---- your own sweet dame. Oh...
Swing your corner round and round says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
Make their feet lift off the ground says Barnacle Bill the Sailor
Promenade, around you go, left foot high and right foot low,
Kick'em out if they're too slow --- says Barnacle Bill the Sailor (all
settle in man's place, bow to partner)
It's good early in the evening for teaching positions, progression,
how to come out of a swing on the correct side -- assuming you're
doing gendered couples. I'll leave it to you to redo the words to the
right "woke"-ness level for your group. :)
The high schoolers at Farm And Wilderness in the late 90s clamored
for/did it every week with great relish and abandon, mainly because
they knew each other well enough that the simple crossing-the-floor
moment became something of high drama and creativity.
