Oh, fly, fly away
Hoo!

Mock (yeah)
In' (a-yeah)
A-bird (a-yeah)
A-yeah (a-yeah)

Mockingbird, everybody have you heard?
(Have you heard?)
He's gonna buy me, a mockingbird
(He's gonna buy me a mockingbird)

Oh-ooh, if that mockingbird don't sing, yeah
(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 don't shine
(If that diamond ring don't shine)
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
(Surely break this heart of mine)
A-that's why
(A-yes indeed, oh yes indeed)
I can't tell him this sad thing
(Yeah, yeah)
Ho-ho-ho, I know

Ev'rybody (have you heard?)
I know that he knows
(He's gonna buy me a mockingbird)
I can't let him go
A-but, I-I-I, I love him
(If that mockingbird don't sing)
An' it's so sad, an' he's got to go
(He's gonna buy me a diamond ring)

But if-a I, let him go
(If that diamond ring don't shine)
I'm gonna make a mistake in love
(Your will break this heart of mi-i-ine)
A-that's why (yes indeed)
I can't tell him this sad thing
(Oh, yes indeed)
(Yeah, yeah) ho-ho-ho, I know

Ev'rybody, I know but
(A-mockingbird, )
I think, no-no-no, no-no-no
(He's gonna buy me a mockingbird)

An' I-I-I, I know
(And If that mockingbird don't sing)
Yes, I know-know
(He's gonna buy me)
A-he's no square
(A diamond ring)

But the clo-ser he gets
(If that diamond ring don't shine)
I find the harder it is to say, 'no'
(Know he'll break ('hoo-hoo') heart of mine)
A-that's why
I can't tell him this said thing
(Yeah, yeah)
Ho-ho-ho, I know-oh
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Everybody have you heard?
(Have you heard)
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird
(He's gonna buy me a mockingbird)

Oh-oh, if that mockingbord don'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 don't shine
(And if that diamond ring don't shine)
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
(Surely will break this heart of mi-i-ine)
A-that's why (a-yes indeed)
I can't tell him this sad thing
(Oh-ho, yes indeed)

Yeah, yeah, ho-ho-ho)
Yeah, yeah, ho-ho-ho
Yeah, yeah, whoa-ho-ho

Oooh yeah!

Yeah!
