Oh, remember the mocking bird, my baby bun.
He used to sing for his supper, baby.
Yes, he used to sing for his dinner, babe,
he used to sing so sweet.
Since my baby left me he ain't sang in two long days.
Oh, remember the bluebirds and the honey bees,
they used to sing for the sunshine.
Yes, they used to sing for the honey, babe,
they used to sing so sweet.
But a since my baby left me they ain't sang in two long days.
Hey, pretty baby, come on back to me.
Make everybody happy as can be.
So baby, if you'll please, come home again.
You know I'll kiss you for my supper, yeh.
You know I'll kiss you for my dinner, babe, now.
But a if you don't come back you know I'll have to starve to death
'cos I ain't had a kiss all day now, all day.
got to remember, yeh,
got to remember, oh Lord.
Come on back, come back in my arms,
I'll make everything that better.
Let me tell ya now.
Can't you hear me call you, baby, now?
Come on, baby, stop jiving around.
Hurry home, hurry home.
