OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

You circle left around the ring now
Reverse (circle right) it back, go single file
All the girls backtrack meet your man, box the gnat, pull her by
Left allemande and weave the ring
Look what they've done to my song - Ma
Dosado and promenade
It's the only thing I could do half right and it's turning out all wrong - Ma
*Look what they've done to my song


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head ladies flutter wheel across now
You Touch 1/4, boys run
Swing thru and then, boys run right again, Ma
Wheel & deal and sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru, partner trade
Star thru, California twirl
That corner swing and promenade
It's the only thing I could do half right and it's turning out all wrong - Ma
*Look what they've done to my song


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*It's on changé, ma chanson

What Have They Done To My Song Ma

Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well it's the only thing I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong
Look what they've done to my song
Wish I could find a good book to live in
Wish I could find a good book to live in
I'd never have to come out and
Look what they've done to my song
Look what they've done to my brain, Ma
Well they've cook it like a chicken bone
I think I'm half insane, Ma
Look what they've done to my brain

Ils ont changé ma chanson Ma
Ils ont changé ma chanson
C'est le seul chose je peux fais
Est-ce-que n'est pas bonne, Ma?
Ils ont changé ma chanson

Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well they've tied it up in a plastic bag
Then turned it upside down
Look what they've done to my song
La, la, la, la...

Well it's the only thing I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Oh Mama
Well they've cook it like a chicken bone
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song, Ma

Look what they've done to my song, Ma!

Lyrics by Melanie Safka.
Recorded by Melanie.
