Johnny O'keefe – Mockingbird lyrics

Moc - (yeah-eah) - king - (yeah-eah) - bird - (yeah-eah) - yeah - (yeah-eah)
Mocking bir-ird
Everybody have you heard (have you heard)
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird (Daddy's gonna buy her a mocking bird)
Woh-oh, if that mockingbird don't sing (And if that mocking bird don't sing)
He's gonna buy me diamond ri-ing (Daddy gonna buy her a diamond ring)
And if that diamond ring won't shine (And if that diamond ring don't shine now)
He's gonna surely break this heart of mine (Surely she will break this heart of mi-i-ine)
That's why (Yes indeed), I kept tellin' you sadly (Oh, yes indeed)
Yeah-eah, eah-eah, woh-woh-woh, I know-ow
I-I-I, I lo-ove him (Everybody have you heard)
But I can't, let him kn-ow (Daddy's gonna buy her a mocking bird)
And I-I-I, I lo-ove him (And if that mockingbird don't sing)
And he says, he's gotta know-ow (Daddy's gonna buy her a diamond ring)
'Cause I-I don't know if I (And if that diamond ring won't shine now)
Make a mistake in love (Surely she will break this heart of mi-i-ine)
And that's why (Yes indeed) I kept tellin' you sadly (Oh, yes indeed)
Yeah-eah, eah-eah, woh-woh-woh, I know-ow
Everybody (Everybody) have you heard (have you heard)
He's gonna buy me a mockingbird (Daddy's gonna buy her a mocking bird)
Woh-oh, if that mockingbird don't sing (And if that mockingbird don't sing)
He's gonna buy me diamond ri-ing (Daddy gonna buy her 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 she will break this heart of mine)
And that's why (Yes indeed), I kept tellin' you sadly (Oh, yes indeed)
Yeah-eah, eah-eah, woh-woh-woh, I know-o
