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

Mockingbird
 
 

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.
Recorded by Inez & Charlie Foxx; Aretha Franklin; Carly Simon; many others.
