Bugs Bunny- Hillbilly Hare

Once you get this song into your head, you’ll be trying to sing it all day.  Here are the words to Bugs Bunny’s Hillbilly Square Dance.  As always, video below.

Let’s all Square Dance.
Places all.
Bow to your corner,
bow to your own.

Three hands up and round you go,
break it up with a dosey do.
Chicken in the bread pan kickin’ out dough.
Skip to ma Lou, my darling.

The old lady out, you pretty little thing,
promenade around the ring.
Big foot up and little foot down,
make that big foot jar the ground.

Lady step back and two gents in,
back you go and forward again.
Step right up with an elbow swing.
Skip to ma Lou, my darling.

Allemande left with the old left hand,
follow through with a right-left grand.
Meet your honey with a great big smile,
promenade Indian style.

*Bugs Bunny takes over*

Promenade across the floor,
sashay right on out the door.
Out the door and into the glade,
and everybody promenade.

Step right up, you’re doing fine,
I’ll pull your beard, you pull mine.
Yank it again like you did before,
break it up with a tug o’war.

Now into the brook and fish for the trout,
dive right in and splash about.
Trout, trout, pretty little trout,
one more splash and come right out.

Shake like a hound dog, shake again,
wallow around in the ol’ pig pen.
Wallow some more, y’all know how,
roll around like an ol’ fat sow.

Allemande left with your left hand,
follow through with a right-left grand.
Now leave your partner, the dirty ol’ thing,
follow through with an elbow swing.

Grab a fence post, hold it tight,
womp your partner with all your might.
Hit him in the chin, hit him in the head,
hit him again, that critter ain’t dead.

Womp him low and womp him high,
stick your finger in his eye.
Pretty little rhythm, pretty little sound,
bang your heads against the ground.

Promenade all around the room,
promenade like a bride and groom.
Open up the door and step right in,
close the door and into a spin.

Whirl, whirl, twist and twirl,
jump all round like a flyin’ squirrel.
Now don’t you cuss and don’t you swear,
just come right out and form a square.

Now right hand over and left hand under,
both join hands and run like thunder.
Over the hill and over the dale,
duck your head and lift your tail.

Don’t you stray and don’t you roam,
turn around and promenade home.
Corn in the crib pen, wheat in the sack,
turn your partner and promenade back.

And now you’re home.
Bow to your partner.
Bow to the gent across the hall.
And that is all.
