LYRICS:

A sound so sweet, fine feathered friend
A heart that beats, never to offend
A moonlit tune, a wished for friend
A heart that swoons, never to end

I see you there, I see you too
I hear you near, I hear you too
I dare you dear, I dare you do
To love me true, my Tennessee Mockingbird

A turn of phrase, my darling dear
To sing your praise and see you near
This Spring night, my song filled friend
Sweetness ‘n light to my sor-row lend

I see you there, I see you too
I hear you near, I hear you too
I dare you dear, I dare you do
To love me true, my Tennessee Mockingbird

I sing to you of true love found
Repeat you do for another round
My mockingbird of Tennessee
More sweetly heard never shall be

I see you there, I see you too
I hear you near, I hear you too
I dare you dear, I dare you do
To love me true, my Tennessee Mockingbird
To love me true, my Tennessee Mockingbird
