  • Lyrics: 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?t 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
