Mockingbird Lyrics

Mock, yeah, ing, yeah, bird, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Mockingbird, now

Everybody have you heard?
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird (he's gonna buy me a mockingbird)
And if that mockingbird won't sing (if that mockingbird don't sing)
He's gonna buy me a diamond ring (he's gonna buy me a diamond ring)
And if that diamond ring won't shine (if that diamond ring won't shine)
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine (surely he's gonna break this heart of mine)
And that's why I keep on tellin' everybody, say
Yeah, yeah, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Hear me now and understand (understand)
He's gonna find me some peace of mind (I'm gonna find some peace of mind)
And if that peace of mind won't stay (and if that peace of mind won't stay)
I'm gonna find myself a better way (I'm gonna find myself a better way)
And if that better way ain't so (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, say
Yeah, yeah, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, oh, oh, oh (mama)

Well, now everybody have you heard? (everybody have you heard?)
She's gonna buy me a mockingbird (she's gonna buy me a mockingbird)
Yeah, if that mockingbird don't sing (if that mockingbird don't sing)
She's gonna buy me a diamond ring (she's gonna buy me a diamond ring)
And if that diamond ring won't shine (and if that diamond ring won't shine)
Yes, it'll surely break this heart of mine (she's gonna break this heart of mine)
That's there's a reason why I keep on tellin' everybody
Say, yeah, yeah, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Listen now and understand (Listen now and understand)
She's gonna find me some peace of mind (she's gonna find me some peace of mind)
Yeah, if that peace of mind won't stay (if that peace of mind won't stay)
I'm gonna get myself a better way (get myself a better way, ah)
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 shoutin' in your ears, yo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, baby, yeah
