  • Rain, sea, surf, sand, clouds and sky
    Hush now baby, don't you cry
    There's a mocking bird
    Singing songs in the trees
    There's a mocking bird
    Singing songs
    Just for you and me

    Rain, sea, surf, sand, clouds and sky
    Time will see your tears run dry
    There's a mocking bird
    Singing songs in the trees
    There's a mocking bird
    Singing songs
    Just for you and me

    Rain, sea, surf, sand, clouds and sun
    Bless the tears of love now gone
    There's a mocking bird
    Singing songs in the trees
    There's a mocking bird
    Singing songs
    Singing just for me
