OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic, R-H lady progression

Well now 4 ladies chain across that ring,
you roll away and circle left I say
Why don't you roll away and circle left you go
Left allemande & you weave that ring
In and out and when you meet her, box the gnat
Girls promenade and you strut your stuff
Once around and do a dosado
Left allemande, promenade you know
She's gonna whisper in your ear
Just like a dixie hummingbird


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads square thru
And you meet the sides with a right hand star and you keep in time
Heads star left and you roll it around
Same 2 dosado and now
Swing thru, the boys you run
Tag the line to the right, wheel & deal tonight
Pass thru, at home turn partner right,
corner by the left and all do a roll promenade
She can say she loves you without a single word
'Cause she's a dixie hummingbird

Dixie Hummingbird
 
 

Ok, here's a song about my sweetheart down south.
You might ask is he a fox, whoa - shut your mouth!
His momma taught him to be seen and not heard.
So when he's havin' a good time, whoa, he coos like a bird.

Well, he hails from Atlanta.
He got a soft, southern style.
And the way he's put together,
Holy mack'ral, honey child.
He don't like conversation.
No, he's never been one to chat.
But when he holds me close,
Good lord, he knows exactly where it's at.

He gets down to the nitty-gritty.
He don't waste a lot of time.
We start to spoon, and pretty soon
He's humming, "Georgia On My Mind."

And then he makes those kinky little
Sounds in my ear.
They're not in any dictionary,
But he's comin' through loud and clear.
When my baby says he loves me,
Without a single word,
He's my Dixie Hummingbird.

Ohh, hum it, honey.

Instrumental break while Daryl
makes humming/grunting sounds.

Mmmmm, mmm, mmm, mm, listen to that.

((He's hummin' Dixie.))
((He's hummin' Dixie.))
(Oh, doesn't that just turn you on?)
((He's hummin' Dixie.))
((He's hummin' Dixie to me.))

Well, now he hardly ever speaks.
I guess he never finds the need.
But you must admit that a thousand words,
Don't stack up to the deed.
He lets his actions do the talkin'.
And he tries so hard to please.
And he's mighty fine, (he's fine) he's all mine,
And I'm his main squeeze.

Yeah, he's really saying somethin'
With a language all his own.
Well, he may not know the words,
But he can really hum along.

And when he makes those kinky little sounds in my ear.
They're not in any dictionary,
But he's coming through loud and clear.
When my baby says he loves me,
Without a single word,
He's my Dixie Hummingbird.

Unh, unh, unh, unh, unh, unh, unh, unh.
Ooooo, you send me.
(He's hummin' Dixie.)
Mmm-mmm-mmm.
(Hummin' Dixie.)
((She's' Hummin' Dixie.))
That Bird sing.
(He's hummin' Dixie doo-doo-doo.)
When my baby says he loves me,
Without a single word,
He's my Dixie,
(He's my Dixie)
He's my Dixie, Hummingbird.

Ahh-huh, oh yeah,
Oh, yeah, you send me, you send me.

(He's Hummin' Dixie,)
(Still hummin' Dixie,)
(Still hummin' Dixie,)
(Still singin' Dixie doo-doo-doo.)
There he goes again, there he goes again!

(Still hummin' Dixie,)
(Still hummin' Dixie,)
(Still singin' Dixie doo-doo-doo.)

Oh, you turn me on.

Lyrics by Ray Stevens.
Recorded by Ray Stevens; Captain And Tennille.
