DESCRIPTION: "Six ladies to the center with the right hand crossed, Be careful that you don't get lost, Back to the left and don't be afraid, Pass your partner in the Star Promenade. My old girl went back on me, Just because I went to see, My old girl went away...."

NOTES: Roud lumps this with a large number of other playparties, typified by Randolph's "Ladies to the Center." Since they're all dance tunes with little plot, this is possible, but they don't look like the same song to me. - RBW
