about

Seems every girl who writes songs has a song about some bird, that flies to her window and speaks to her in messages warm and deep. The bird outside my window sings all day and night. This mockingbird confuses me into not knowing night from day. I hear her sing and I get that sick feeling that I’ve stayed up all night AGAIN, and the next day, well...is useless now.

lyrics

Mockingbird outside my window
Make me think the dawn has come
I get that ugly feeling that I put away another one
makes you think it’s dawn
you’ve been singing all night long
Another all night all night long
playing all night
playing all night mockingbird,
lets you and me
holler into the trees

Most little birds they sing at dawn
they’re not singing all night long
I don’t know what other birdies sing
Mine just hollers bout everything
Makes you think it’s dawn
that you’ve been singing all night long
Another all night all night long
singing all night
playing all night mockingbird,
lets you and me
holler into the trees

Seems every gal who writes a song
has a little birdie helping her along
well my little bird outside my door
is a mockingbird and it sings the night o’er
makes you think it’s dawn
that you’ve been dancing all night long
Another all night all night long.....

Mockingbird, you mocking me….
