When our Grandmas and our Grandpas were just girls and boys
The seemed to have a lot more fun than we
Their party clothes were calicoes and homemade courturoys
And the big event was called a husking bee

A banjo and a fiddle and a big old fashioned barn
Was all the preparation that they made
And if they tell you otherwise, dismiss it as a yarn
Refreshments were confined to lemonade

Now you may say it Corny
And I guess I must agree
But it was good enough for Grandma
It was good enough for Grandpa
And it Good enough for me

Hoe down the country Gone hoe down
It's puttin' its toe down and kickin' its heels
Hoe down, it's really a rare dance
A pioneer square dance but with a new deal

One, two, swing your partner lightly
While you hold her ever so tightly
And bring your best beau down
We're havin' a show down and gotta make hast
'Cause hoe down on it way

Stand in line and do the Turkey
Like a Yankee Doodle Dandy
When you turkey do it jerky
That the trick, now your hoein' on down

Sashay, sashay, sashay
Around while you're hoein' on down
Form a circle in the middle
Everybody Allemande

Boys keep tempo with the fiddle
And your gal in the calico gown
Whoa ho, whoa ho, whoa ho
Around in your calico gown

Do-si-do around, it's very romantic
Do-si-do, do-si-do some more and maybe she'll fall
Now it's time to do your honors
Then when you've done your honors, promenade the hall

Do-si-do around, it's very romantic
Do-si-do, do-si-do some more and maybe she'll fall
Now it's time to do your honors
Then when you've done your honors, promenade the hall
