Golden Ring Around the Susan Girl


Lyrics

Golden ring around the Susan girl
Golden ring around the Susan girl
Golden ring around the Susan girl
All the way around the Susan girl

Take a little girl and give her a whirl… (repeat twice)
All the way around the Susan girl

Refrain
Round and around Susan girl… (repeat twice)
All the way around the Susan girl

Do-si-do right the Susan girl… (repeat twice)
All the way around the Susan girl
Do-si-do left the Susan girl… (repeat twice)
All the way around the Susan girl  Refrain

Hand over hand the Susan girl… (repeat twice)
All the way around the Susan girl
Get a little faster Susan girl… (repeat twice)
All the way around the Susan girl  Refrain


Dance

Students in a circle, standing next to their partners, holding hands. (Optional: two concentric circles with partners holding hands, facing to the right.) One couple is in the center of the circle.

“Golden ring” = circle right while center couple stands still

“Take a little girl” = circle of students stands still (facing the center), clapping, while center couple does a right arm swing.

Refrain: Center couple circles right, circle of students circles left.

“Do-si-do right” and “do-si-do left” = follow the lyrics

Refrain 2nd time: Center couple joins circle of students.

“Hand over hand” =
(advanced version) Grand right and left around the circle until each person ends up with a new partner.

(easier version) Promenade right, then promenade left
