Lyrics

All join hands and circle to the left,
And circle to the left, and circle to the left,
All join hands and circle to the left,
And swing them all around

‘Round and around and around we go,
‘Round and around and around we go,
‘Round and around and around we go
To swing them all around.


Dance

Formation: Four couples stand in a circle (each person next to his/her partner).

  • Verse 1 & Refrain – All circle to the left. They will have time to make two circles around and end up where they started.
  • Verse 2 & Refrain – First couple (designate which couple will be “first” before starting) joins hands with the couple on their right and circles left (one group of 4 people).
  • Verse 3 & Refrain – The boy steps to his left to stand in front of a different couple, and the girl steps to her right in front of the other couple. They circle left with the couple they are standing in front of (two groups of 3 people). Optional:If you aren’t forcing students to be in boy-girl couple groups, you can sing the lyrics “One to the left and one to the right.”
  • Verse 4 & Refrain – All promenade back to their spots. (Optional – a new “First Couple” can be chosen, and the sequence can begin again.)
