Ben Harper – Remember lyrics

(Jimi Hendrix)

Won't you remember the mocking bird, my baby bun.
He used to sing for dinner, baby.
Oh, he used to sing for his supper -- .
He used to sing so sweetly.
Since my baby left me, he ain't sang for two long days.

Oh, remember the blue-birds and the honey bees.
They used to sing for you and me.
Oh, they used to sing about you and me.
They used to sing so sweetly.
But since my baby left me they ain't sang in two long days.

Oh, won't you please come home.
Come on home, come to me.
Make everyday happy as can be.

And if you'll leave come on home to me, I'll kiss you for my dinner, baby.
I'll kiss you for my supper -- .
But if you don't come back - you know, I'll have to starve to death.
'cause I ain't had noon of your loving all day now.
Oh, remember.
Oh, would you remember.

Oh, remember the blue-birds and the honey bees singing sweetly for you and me.
Oh, the mocking bird, my baby bun.
Oh, don't you come home to me.
Will you remember.
