Mockingbird
Inez & Charlie Foxx; Aretha Franklin; Carly Simon; many others 1963
  (Riverboat 283)   Gary Shoemake, Ken Bower

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
