   Em
If I were a mocking bird

I'd mock you
   Em
In soft winds

And silent words

I'd spot you
     Em
Like snow blushing in the sunlight

And I'd melt you

Like morning into twilight


   Em
If I were a mocking bird

Would you chain me
   Em
In view of the endless sky world

From the window
     Em
Wind reaches, desperate, through the cage bars

To seize me
    Em
And I'd die in your arms

But not your heart

If it please you


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


F       C
Mocking bird
             Em
I'd fly all around
F          C
Top of the world
               Em
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
