Set dance, 5 couples
|A1:|| 1s galop down chased by 2s then back to place 2s leading (8 steps each way).|
|A2:|| 1s set off again this time pursued by 3s and back. 3s return to place; 1s stop between 4s and 5s.|
|B1:|| 2s and 3s make a circle of 4 while remaining W make a circle of 3 and while remaining M make a circle of 3. All circle L 8 steps and back.|
|B2:|| 1s leave their circles and turn to each other into a long swing (16 steps). All others make a ring and squeeze them: circle moves forward saying "we want our money". As it moves back the 1s reply "cheque's in the post"; repeat the squeeze. 1s end at bottom on own sides.|
An everyday story of urban life - honest people (the 1s) are chased by creditors (the 2s and 3s) until they have to go to the pawnbrokers - then everyone falls on them and squeezes out their last pennies.
Music: 32-bar jigs
