Lyrics

Charlie’s neat and Charlie’s sweet
And Charlie, he’s a dandy.
Charlie he’s the very lad
That stole my striped candy.
Over and over, ten times over,
Charlie, he’s a rover.
Take your partner by the hands
And ring the dishrag over.


Dance

Students in 2 lines facing each other. Each student is facing partner in the other line.

4 beats: 3 steps forward, high five partner
4 beats: 4 steps backward, clap twice on last two beats (“dan-dy”)
8 beats: Students walk forward and trade places with partner, turn and face partner again

4 beats: 3 steps forward, high five partner
4 beats: 4 steps backward
8 beats: Hold both hands with partner and without losing hold of the other person’s hands, both partners do an underarm turn.
