Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Everybody now have you heard
I'm gonna buy my gal a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird don't sing

Left allemande left and now you weave that ring
Well, if that diamond ring don't shine
It's surely gonna break this heart of mine
That's why, I keep on telling everybody
Say, yeah, yeah, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, whoa


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads (sides) promenade and take them halfway
Come in a square thru four hands you go
All the way around, do a right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel you do
Square thru three to your corner, there
Swing that corner girl and promenade that square
And that's why, I keep on tellin' everybody
Say, yeah, yeah, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, whoa

(Say, yeah, yeah, sides face, grand square)


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Hear me now and understand
I'm gonna find her some peace of mind
And if that peace of mind don't stay

Left allemande and weave around that way
Now, if that better way ain't so
I'll ride with the tide and I'll go with the flow
And that's why I keep on shoutin' in your ear
Say, yeah, yeah, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa


TAG

That's why, I keep on shoutin' in your ear
Say, yeah, yeah, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa

Mockingbird Lyrics ID: 2220

Everybody have you heard
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird don't sing
He's gonna buy me a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring won't shine
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that's why I keep on tellin' everybody.....

Hear me now and understand
He's gonna find me some piece of mind
And if that piece of mind won't stay
I'm gonna find myself a better way
And if that better way ain't so
I'll ride with the tide and go with the flow
And that's why I keep on shoutin' in your ear.....

Everybody have you heard
She's gonna buy me a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird don't sing
She's gonna buy me a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring won't shine
Gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that's the reason why I keep on tellin' everybody...

Listen now and understand
She's gonna find me some piece of mind
And if that piece of mind won't stay
I'm gonna get myself a better way
I might rise above, I might go below
Ride with the tide and go with the flow
And that's the reason why I keep on shouting in your ear

Lyrics by Inez & Charlie Foxx.
