Inez & Charlie Foxx – Mockingbird lyrics

Mock - (Yeah)
Ing- (Yeah)
Bird- (Yeah)
Yeah- (Yeah)
Mockingbird,

Everybody have you heard- (Have you heard)
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird- (He's gonna buy me a mockingbird)
Oh, 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 will break this heart of mine)
And that's why I keep telling him that's exactly, (Yeah, yeah)

Whoa I, know, I know I do what I can to let him know- (Everybody have you heard, he's gonna buy me a mockingbird)
That I, I love him and he's got, he's got to go- (If that mockingbird don't sing, he's gonna buy me a diamond ring)
But, if I must go, he's got to take, a mistaken love- (If that diamond ring don't shine, sure will break this heart of mine)
That's why, I can't tell you that's exactly whoa, whoa, whoa
I know, is I, I know that he knows that I care-
And I, I know that he knows, he starts crying,
Cause if that bird don't sing and ring don't shine,
He's so sad, that's why, I can't tell you that exactly whoa, whoa... (Yes, it will, yes, it will, yeah, yeah...)

Everybody have you heard- (Have you heard)
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird- (He's gonna buy me a mockingbird)
Oh, 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 will break this heart of mine)
And that's why I keep telling him that's exactly,

Everybody have you heard- (Have you heard)
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird- (He's gonna buy me a mockingbird)
Oh, 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 will break this heart of mine)
And that's why I keep telling him that's exactly,
