Call for Star in the Center, Sides Divide
Head Couples Star while the Sides divide;
Right and Left Through the center and sides.
Left-Hand Swing the Corners of the ring,
Swing your own with a Two-Hand Swing,
Swing and whirl that pretty little thing.
Head Coples Star while the Sides divide;
Rithe and Left Through the center and sides.
Left-Hand Swing the Corners of the ring, and
Promenade that pretty little thing that's
Slim around the waist and pretty in the face,
Take your Honey back to place, and
Square your sets with a smile on your face.
Repeat the call three times more with the Head Couples forming the Star while the Side Couples
separate; then four times with the Side Couples forming the Star while the Head Couples separate,
changing the wording of the call to conform. Eight changes in all
