Well I try to be as bright as a rainbow
Arcing my way across the sky
Slide down me to your pot of gold

And I try to be a light as a feather
Don't worry about the weather close my eyes
The wind will take me where I want to go

Black as night and still he sings
A flash of white as he takes wing
But the mockingbird won't sing for me

Well I work as hard as I can to be smarter
Hoping if I do what I oughtta do
Then everything will turn out right

And I drive day after day going nowhere
Doing my best to always remember
How to get home again

Black as night and still he sings
A flash of white as he takes wing
But the mockingbird won't sing for me

And I sing along with the radio
Beating out a rhythm on the steering wheel
With the palm of my hand

And I pray that I will sleep when the night comes
Instead of worrying about everything I've done
That can't be undone again

Black as night and still he sings
A flash of white as he takes wing
But the mockingbird won't sing for me

Well the birds spread out across the field
Looking for a meal after the rain has come
And the sky has been washed clear

And I watch and marvel at the joy
And grieve for the boy who is still lost
And can't find his way home again

Black as night and still he sings
A flash of white as he takes wing
But the mockingbird won't sing for me
Still the mockingbird won't sing for me
