Roxanne,

I could not tell if you were after additional lyrics for the song, or if you were trying to find a recording of a simple version of the song. If it's lyrics versions there were two old threads (1996 and 1998) that can be retrieved from the forum search using "mockingbird" as the search term. There's also a version in the DT under "Hush L'il Baby" (or is it Li'l?). Those damnable contractions can really spoil a search. This song also has mockingbird as "mockin'bird" so you cannot (can't) find it searching for the avian participant either. I even failed to get it with "mock* bird" becasue I put the space in between. If it is recordings you seek, there are a number of them out there. I'd have to go hunting to find the specifics. I know Peter Paul & Mary and the Weavers recorded it but there are others as well
