Now there is a singer everyone has heard
At night he turns into a mockingbird
If I whistle in the dark he'll do that to.

I met him on the road,
At the close of day,
He talked like me, and walked this way
I said mockingbird "You ain't no innovator".

And there is a singer everybody knows,
he makes the rounds of the late night shows,
Shakes the hands of the host and the masquerade is on,
You turn him off on the radio,
when he say me and my shadow,
Shoot out the lights my shadows gone.

Down at the bottom of the calendar day,
find my raychad I can see your face,
If i'm tied up to the tracks,
hen he's chained up to the road,
Down at the bottom of the calenda rday,
One for the money, two for the show,
For me and my shadow.

Shoot out the lights and my shadow is gone,
Shoot out the lights and my shadow is gone.

And there is a shadow everyone has heard,
At night he turns into a mockingbird,
If I whistle in the dark he'll do that do,
I have met him on the road today,
A silhouette on a black highway
I said "You can have this world,
This world is not my own",
Then he said " You can keep this world,
This world is not my home".

    Lyric CorrectionA few corrections

    - I said, "Mockingbird, you ain't no innovator."

    "There's a singer everybody knows
    He makes the round of the late-night shows
    Shakes the hand of the host and the masquerade is on"

    "Down at the bottom of the calendar day
    find my roots yeah you'll see (???)
    if I'm tied up to the tracks, then he's chained up to the road
    (Down at the bottom of the calendar day)
    And it's one for the money, two for the show, for me and my shadow.
    Shoot out the lights and my shadow's gone"
