  • If I were a mocking bird
    I'd mock you
    In soft winds
    And silent words
    I'd spot you
    Like snow blushing in the sunlight
    And I'd melt you
    Like morning into twilight

    If I were a mocking bird
    Would you chain me
    In view of the endless sky world
    From the window
    Wind reaches, desperate, through the cage bars
    To seize me
    And I'd die in your arms
    But not your heart
    If it please you

    Fire flies and so do I
    I fly high to hide in flight
    Why, I delight in blue sky
    It's almost like dying

    Mocking bird
    I'd fly all around
    Top of the world
    And never come down
    From here

    If I were a mocking bird
    I'd give you feathers
    And my very own blood
    And other treasures
    Which you keep on your dresser at night
    In corner darkness
    By the candle that you never light
    Though it be moonless

    Fire flies, so do I
    I fly to hide in flight
    Why, I delight in blue sky
    It's so much, so much like dying

    Against the tide
    I'd fly all around
    With the wind
    And never come down
    From here

    Fire flies, so do I
    I fly high to hide in flight
    I delight in windy sky
    It's almost so much like dying
    Fire flies, so do I
    I fly high to ride like kites
    Why, I delight in blue sky
    It is almost so much like dying

    If I were a mocking bird
    I'd fly all around
    To the top of the world
    And never come down
    From here
