I've been going to write to this song for as long as I can remember... but just never got around to it.  When Grace from Singapore gave me the music I decided that the time had come to do something about it...so here is the finished product. 
The music is succinct and therefore the dance is only 4 walls long. If you like it you might want to do it a couple of times to make up for it's brevity.  Whatever, I hope you enjoy Mockingbird Waltz.... and my thanks to Grace for her version of the music.    See you on the floor sometime....
