(Folk song)

1. Hands all up in the Irish trot,
Hands all up in the Irish trot,
Hands all up in the Irish trot,
Way down below.

2. Turn right back in the Irish trot (repeat twice),
Way down below.

3. Rights and lefts in the Irish trot…

4. Treat them all alike in the Irish trot…


Formation: Students stand in a circle holding hands up high. Partners stand next to each other (one person is Partner One, the other is Partner Two). Ones face in, Twos face out.

1. Walk around clockwise.

2. Circle counterclockwise.

3. Partners face each other, then grand right and left until they meet again. (Ones face left and go counterclockwise, Twos face right and go clockwise, shaking right hands, then left hands.)

4. Double L swing: Twos go around the circle and swing each One with two hands. Twos go around the circle one and a half times to the right.
