mock

bird
yeah
yeah
yeah
mockingbird now

hey everybody have you heard
he’s gonna buy me a mockingbird
and if that mockingbird won’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
saying

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
saying

well now everybody have you heard
she’s gonna buy me a mockingbird, yeah
and if that mockingbird don’t sing
she’s gonna buy me a diamond ring

and if that diamond ring won’t shine
yes it surely break this poor heart of mine
and that’s the reason why i keep on tellin’ everybody
saying no no no no no no no no

listen now and understand
she’s gonna find me some piece of mind, yeah
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
no no no no no no no no baby, yeah
