INTRO

Mock (yeah), -ing (yeah), bird (yeah)
Mockin'bird


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*Everybody have you heard
I'm gonna buy her a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird don't sing
I'm gonna buy her a diamond ring

Allemande left and weave the ring
**And if that diamond ring won't shine
She's gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that's why, we keep on tellin' everybody
Sayin' yeah, yeah whoa, whoa


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Hear me now and understand
I'm gonna find her some piece of mind
And if that piece of mind won't stay
I'm gonna find myself a better way


**I'll rise above I'll go below
I'll ride with the tide and go with the flow
And that's why I keep on shoutin' in your ear
Sayin' yeah, yeah whoa, whoa, whoa


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru, dosado
Right & left thru
Veer left, couples circulate
Chain down the line, walk up to the middle and back
Star thru, pass thru
Trade by and swing and promenade
Sayin' yeah, yeah whoa, whoa, whoa
