Red Winged Black birds
Jesse likes a sparrow
Jesse likes a Whippoorwill
Jesse likes the sound through the window of a mockingbird late at night

And if that Mockingbird don't sing
Mama gonna buy you a diamond ring

Jesse likes wind
Jesse likes water
Jesse likes the sky
Jesse likes kids
Jesse likes the sound from the window of a car passing by

And if that Mockingbird don't sing
Mama gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass
Mama gonna buy you a looking glass

Jesse likes drums
Jesse likes fire
Jesse likes the soul
Jesse likes parades
Jesse likes the sound through the window in the distance of a soul parade

And if that mocking bird don't sing
Mama gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass
Mama gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke
Mama gonna buy you a billy goat

But if that mockingbird don't sing
Jesse don't need no diamond ring
Jesse need the sound of his mamas voice

She says Jesse likes birds
Red Winged Black birds
And Jesse likes a sparrow
Jesse likes a whippoorwill
Jesse likes a mockingbird
