OPENER    Basic

Four ladies chain, turn my girl
Turn and chain those ladies back home
Join all your hands and you circle that ring, go
Allemande left that corner, weave the ring
He sings her love songs and tells her his love's strong
Swing that lady, all promenade
He says that he needs her and tells her he loves her
Why didn't I think of that


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around now
Down the middle, square thru and four
Four hands around then a right & left thru, go
Turn that girl and all pass thru, trade by
Touch 1/4, scoot back and go
Swing that lady, all promenade
He says that he needs her and tells her he loves her
Why didn't I think of that


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER

Sides face, grand square
Ooh, I'm watching
Every move that he makes
Ooh, I've been thinking
It could've been different somehow

Left allemande and weave
He sings her love songs and tells her his love's strong
Swing that lady, all promeande
He says that he needs her and tells her he loves her
Why didn't I think of that


TAG

He says that he needs her and tells her he loves her
Why didn't I think of that

Why Didn't I Think Of That
 
 

He sends her roses and lines he composes
Things a lady loves.
Well he's there to hold her when she needs a shoulder
If life gets too rough
Oh now that she's left I keep kicking myself
Whenever I start thinking back
He says he needs her, tells her he loves her
Why didn't I think of that?

When she gets down, well he's always around and
He makes her smile again.
He mends her heartaches, remembers her birthday
And tries to be a friend
Now that she's gone I know what I did wrong
It's all so simple in fact.
Well he says he wants her, can't live without her
Why didn't I think of that?

Ooh, I've been watching
Every move that he makes
Ooh, I've been thinking
It could have been different somehow
If I'd known what I know now.

He sings her love songs and tells her his love's strong
Things she needs to know
He tries to please her, and calls for no reason
Just to say hello
He says he loves her and he'll never leave her
And I never will get her back
I did my best, thought of everything else
Why didn't I think of that?

Ooh, I've been watching
Every move that he makes
Ooh, I've been thinking
It could have been different somehow
If I'd known what I know now.

He sends her roses and lines he composes
Things a lady loves.
Well he's there to hold her when she needs a shoulder
If life gets too rough
Oh now that she's left I keep kicking myself
Whenever I start thinking back
He says he needs her, tells her he loves her
Why didn't I think of that?

He says he loves her and he'll never leave her
Why didn't I think of that?

Lyrics by Bob McDill and Paul Harrison.
Recorded by Doug Stone.
