Whispers Of A Mockingbird: Unveiling The Poetry In ‘Mockingbird’ Lyrics

Mockingbird Lyrics

Yeah, I Know Sometimes
Things May Not Always Make Sense To You Right Now
But, Hey, What Daddy Always Tell You?
Straighten Up, Little Soldier
Stiffen Up That Upper Lip
What You Cryin’ About?
You Got Me

Hailie, I Know You Miss Your Mom And I Know You Miss Your Dad
Well, I’m Gone, But I’m Tryin’ To Give You The Life That I Never Had
I Can See You’re Sad, Even When You Smile, Even When You Laugh
I Can See It In Your Eyes, Deep Inside You Want To Cry
‘Cause You’re Scared, I Ain’t There
Daddy’s With You In Your Prayers
No More Cryin’, Wipe Them Tears
Daddy’s Here, No More Nightmares
We Gon’ Pull Together Through It, We Gon’ Do It
Lainie, Uncle’s Crazy, Ain’t He?
Yeah, But He Loves You, Girl, And You Better Know It
We’re All We Got In This World
When It Spins, When It Swirls
When It Whirls, When It Twirls
Two Little Beautiful Girls
Lookin’ Puzzled, In A Daze
I Know It’s Confusin’ You
Daddy’s Always On The Move, Mama’s Always On The News
I Try To Keep You Sheltered From It, But Somehow It Seems
The Harder That I Try To Do That, The More It Backfires On Me
All The Things Growin’ Up His As Daddy That He Had To See
Daddy Don’t Want You To See, But You See Just As Much As He Did
We Did Not Plan It To Be This Way, Your Mother And Me
But Things Have Gotten So Bad Between Us
I Don’t See Us Ever Bein’ Together Ever Again
Like We Used To Be When We Was Teenagers
But Then, Of Course, Everything Always Happens For A Reason
I Guess It Was Never Meant To Be
But It’s Just Something We Have No Control Over And That’s What Destiny Is
But No More Worries, Rest Your Head And Go To Sleep
Maybe One Day We’ll Wake Up And This Will All Just Be A Dream

Now Hush, Little Baby, Don’t You Cry
Everything’s Gonna Be Alright
Stiffen That Upper Lip Up, Little Lady, I Told Ya
Daddy’s Here To Hold Ya Through The Night
I Know Mommy’s Not Here Right Now And We Don’t Know Why
We Feel How We Feel Inside
It May Seem A Little Crazy, Pretty Baby
But I Promise Mama’s Gon’ Be Alright

It’s Funny
I Remember Back One Year, When Daddy Had No Money
Mommy Wrapped The Christmas Presents Up
And Stuck ‘Em Under The Tree And Said Some Of ‘Em Were From Me
‘Cause Daddy Couldn’t Buy ‘Em
I’ll Never Forget That Christmas, I Sat Up The Whole Night Crying
‘Cause Daddy Felt Like A Bum, See, Daddy Had A Job
But His Job Was To Keep The Food On The Table For You And Mom
And At The Time, Every House That We Lived In
Either Kept Gettin’ Broke Into And Robbed Or Shot Up On The Block
And Your Mom Was Savin’ Money For You In A Jar
Tryna Start A Piggy Bank For You So You Could Go To College
Almost Had A Thousand Dollars Till Someone Broke In And Stole It
And I Know It Hurt So Bad, It Broke Your Mama’s Heart
And It Seemed Like Everything Was Just Startin’ To Fall Apart
Mom And Dad Was Arguin’ A Lot, So Momma Moved Back
On The Chalmers In The Flat, One-Bedroom Apartment
And Dad Moved Back To The Other Side Of 8 Mile On Novara
And That’s When Daddy Went To California With His CD And Met Dr. Dre
And Flew You And Momma Out To See Me
But Daddy Had To Work, You And Momma Had To Leave Me
Then You Started Seein’ Daddy On The TV And Momma Didn’t Like It
And You And Lainie Were Too Young To Understand It
Papa Was A Rolling Stone, Momma Developed A Habit
And It All Happened Too Fast For Either One Of Us To Grab It
I’m Just Sorry You Were There And Had To Witness It First Hand
‘Cause All I Ever Wanted To Do Was Just Make You Proud
Now I’m Sittin’ In This Empty House, Just Reminiscin’
Lookin’ At Your Baby Pictures, It Just Trips Me Out
To See How Much You Both Have Grown, It’s Almost Like You’re Sisters Now
Wow, Guess You Pretty Much Are, And Daddy’s Still Here
Lainie, I’m Talkin’ To You Too, Daddy’s Still Here
I Like The Sound Of That, Yeah
It’s Got A Ring To It, Don’t It?
Shh, Mama’s Only Gone For The Moment

Now Hush, Little Baby, Don’t You Cry
Everything’s Gonna Be Alright
Stiffen That Upper Lip Up, Little Lady, I Told Ya
Daddy’s Here To Hold Ya Through The Night
I Know Mommy’s Not Here Right Now And We Don’t Know Why
We Feel How We Feel Inside
It May Seem A Little Crazy, Pretty Baby
But I Promise Mama’s Gon’ Be Alright

And If You Ask Me To
Daddy’s Gonna Buy You A Mockingbird
I’ma Give You The World
I’ma Buy A Diamond Ring For You
I’ma Sing For You
I’ll Do Anything For You To See You Smile
And If That Mocking Bird Don’t Sing And That Ring Don’t Shine
I’ma Break That Birdie’s Neck
I’d Go Back To The Jeweler Who Sold It To Ya
And Make Him Eat Every Carat, Don’t Fuck With Dad (Haha)
