MOCK YEA ING YEA BIRD  YEAH

mockingbird

 

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' ev'rybody, sayin'

Wo, wo, wo, wo, wo

 

Hear me now and understand

He's gonna find me some peace of mind

And if that peace of mind won't stay

I'm gonna find myself a better way

And if that better way ain't so

I, I, I'll ride with the tide and go with the flow

And that's why I keep on shoutin' in your ear sayin'

Wo, wo, wo, wo, wo

 

Everybody have you heard?

She's gonna buy me a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won't sing

She's gonna buy me a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring won't shine

She's gonna surely break this heart of mine

And that's why I keep on tellin' ev'rybody, sayin' no, no, no, no, no

 

Listen now and understand

She's gonna find me some peace of mind

And if that peace of mind won't stay

I'm gonna find myself a better way

I might rise above , I might go below

I, I, I'll ride with the tide and go with the flow

And that's why I keep on shoutin' in your ears y'all

No, no, no, no, no, no, now, now, baby
