"Mockin' Bird" as written by and Tom Waits....
Mocking Bird high in a tree
Looks like you got the best of me
Mocking Bird singing his song
Well Mocking Bird mocking me
Now that you're gone

Mocking Bird high in a loof
Well he's blowing notes on top my roof
Mocking Bird singing his song
Well Mocking Bird mocking me
Now that you're gone.

Mocking Bird high in a tree
Looking up at you, you're looking down at me
Mocking Bird high in a loof
Well he's blowing notes on top my roof.

Mocking Bird high in a tree
Looking up at you, you're looking down at me
Mocking Bird singing his song
Well Mocking Bird mocking me
Now that you're gone.

Throwed some papers, tried to scare him away
Just looked down at me and this is what he said

Mocking Bird high in a tree
Looks like you got the best of me
Mocking Bird singing his song
Well Mocking Bird mocking me
Now that you're gone

    General CommentHow can no one know this? it sounds like a sunny summers morning when everythings bitter sweet and perfectly surfaced and you're trying to forget a minor encounter you've just encountered. or staring out at the sea in the wind with yourself.
    tell me please, someone MUST know this one.
