"Mockin' Bird" as written by and Tom Waits....
Mockin' bird, high in the tree
Looks like you've got the best of me
Mockin' bird, singing a song
Well, mockin' bird is mocking me now that you're gone
Mocki'n bird, on top of my roof
Blowin' notes on top of my roof
Mockin' bird singing a song
Well, mockin' bird is mocking me now that you're gone
Mockin' bird, high in the tree
I'm looking up at you, you're looking down at me
Mockin' bird, singing a song
Well, the mockin' bird is mocking me now that you're gone
Throw up some papers, try to scare him away
Look down at me, this what he says. . .
Mockin' bird, high in the tree
Looks like you've got the best of me
Mockin' bird, singing a song
Well, the mockin' bird is mocking me now that you're gone
