THERE’S A MOCKINGBIRD
SITTING IN A TREE
AND HE SINGS HIS SONG
WHILE HE’S LOOKING AT ME
DOES HE KNOW MY HEART?
CAN HE FEEL MY HEAVY SOUL?
BET HE SEES THE THINGS
THAT NOBODY KNOWS

LOOK INTO THESE EYES
OF KINDNESS AND TRUTH
AND REMEMBER TIMES
OF INNNOCENCE AND YOUTH
LIKE A LITTLE CHILD
WHO WANTS TO BE A MAN
IN A BIG BAD WORLD
HE’LL TAKE IT IF HE CAN

IT’S TIME I SETTLED DOWN, YOU
KNOW THAT I’M AROUND TO
BE THERE WHEN YOU NEED A FRIEND

HOW THE YEARS HAVE FLOWN
BURNING LIKE A FLAME
AND THAT MOCKINGBIRD
HIS SONG IS STILL THE SAME
BUT HE SINGS AT NIGHT
CALLING TO HIS DEAR
ITS A LULLABY
THAT ONLY SHE CAN HEAR

IT’S TIME I SETTLED DOWN, YOU
KNOW THAT I’M AROUND TO
BE THERE WHEN YOU NEED A FRIEND

MOCKING BIRD, SING ME TO SLEEP
KEEP MY, MY SOUL TO KEEP
YOUR SONG, STILL IN MY HEART
NEVER, NEVER TO PART
LA LA LA LA LA
STILL IN MY HEART
