Our Em
new 
frontier town is D
ar
ranged in a square.
Four Em
walls 
seal out weather, both D
storm
y and fair.
So it s C
long 
been the rule, in our Em
churches 
and schools,
That we C
dance 
in a D
square 
in our Em
ev
eningwear.

Now the Em
old 
Earth is restless; she D
keeps 
fighting back
As us Em
God
-fearing folk square D
off 
for attack.
Til the C
hands 
of our town beat the Em
rest
lessness down.
Then we C
dance 
in a D
square 
in our Em
ev
eningwear.

If you Em
fol
low your neighbor s wife D
one 
moonlit night,
Does Em
she 
roll in the clover with D
no 
man in sight?
Then check C
o
ver your own; you must Em
chain 
her back home,
Where we C
dance 
in a D
square 
in our Em
ev
eningwear.

Yet this Em
New 
World is wild; we D
face 
once again
Those Em
na
tives whose women dance D
circ
les  round men.
But our C
new 
way will spread,  til the Em
old 
ones are dead.
And we ll C
dance 
in a D
square 
in our Em
ev
eningwear.
