Aretha Franklin – Mockingbird lyrics

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah
Mocking bird

Everybody have you heard
He's gonna buy me a mocking bird
Well now you said mockingbird don't sing
He's gonna buy me a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring don't shine
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that's why I keep on tellin' it
Say a thing, oh oh oh

I, I know I love him and I can't tell him so
That I, I, I, I love him and it's true he doesn't know
He doesn't know

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' it
Say a thing, oh oh oh

Everybody have you heard
He's gonna buy me a mocking bird
Well now you said mockingbird don't sing
He's gonna buy me a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring don't shine
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that's why I keep on tellin' it
Say a thing, oh oh oh

I, I know that I felt I love him and I can't tell him so
That I, I, I, I love him and it's true he doesn't know
He doesn't know

And if that diamond ring don't shine
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that's why I keep on tellin' it
Say a thing, oh oh oh I

Everybody have you heard
He's gonna buy me a mocking bird
Well now you said mockingbird don't sing
He's gonna buy me a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring don't shine
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that's why I keep on tellin' it
Say a thing, oh oh oh
