Subject: RE: lyrics for Mockingbird lullaby
I can't remember how it goes because it has been replaced with a military jody (could this be evidence of brain washing? OO RAH)

Bo Diddly, Bo diddly have you heard
Papa gonna buy you a mockingbird
If that mockingbird don't sing
Papa gonna buy you a diamond ring
If that diamond ring don't shine
Papa gonna bring it to the five a dime
If that five and dime don't take it back
Papa gonna put it in a gunny sack
Papa gonna hang it from the highest tree
For all the world to see
I said papa now don't blame me
I'm gonna join the USMC (or U.S. Army)...

It then would segue into the next jody
