Everybody have you heard
He’s gonna buy me a mockingbird
Oh, if that mockingbird don’t sing
He’s gonna buy me a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring don’t shine
He’s gonna surely break this heart of mine
—————–
lyrics based on:
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word, Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don’t sing, Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.
And if that diamond ring turn brass, Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass.
And if that looking glass gets broke, Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat.
And if that billy goat don’t pull, Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull.
And if that cart and bull turn over, Papa’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
And if that dog named Rover won’t bark. Papa’s gonna to buy you a horse and cart.
If that horse and cart fall down, you’ll still be the sweetest CAT in town.

  4. A great collection of ‘Mockingbird’. What a find — Dusty Springfield. Brings back memories of Dusty singing in the background at my parent’s cocktail parties . . . . I think my mother had a sequined outfit just like that!

  7. Oh Frizz, please don’t touch Emily! I love this cat. 🙂 She can do no wrong. Here’s why:
    I just did a 14 minute work-out by exercising (dancing) to these videos. I remember so well Inez and Charlie, and the others, singing this song. These videos had me on the floor doing the Twist, Swim, Monkey, Mash Potato and others. What a great workout I had. So you and Emily actually saved me from being an internet potato. I am bookmarking this post-it will be my exercise routine every day. I’ve always loved dancing but I’m totally out of lock and step with the dances of today. So I’m happy in my dance zone with these videos. 🙂 Thanks Emily! for Frizz’s inspiration for this post. 🙂
