Strange Feelin' - Live in London

(Extemporization - Segues from Love from Room 109)

Hush hush now a while
Don’t you say a word

I just wonder if you are aware of the boy next door
Peeping in your window
Mama how I know you well
And the old man at the corner store
Gives you candy and much more
A pinch and a smile
A quarter lasts for miles
Can’t you hear it now

It’s just like a mockingbird
Singing on a hillside
Chirping out his mothers song
Don’t you weep, don’t you fret
Don’t you rest don’t you moan now
Can’t you hear the whipperwill calling

Some old men read their religion
They read it out of books
But all I gotta do is stare at you darlin’
You are all I knowing
That’s how it’s gonna be baby
Just let that sunshine warm your hair

It’s just like a mockingbird
Singing on a hillside
Chirping out his mothers song
Don’t you weep, don’t you wail
Don’t you moan don’t you fret
Can’t you hear that whipperwill calling

This morning I looked out my window
And I heard the little girls go by
On their way to school
And when nobody’s looking
They are acting so natural
But just as soon as they catch your eye…

It’s just like a mockingbird
Singing on a hillside
Singing out his mothers song
Don’t you weep, don’t you fret
Don’t you moan don’t you wail
Can’t you hear that whipperwill calling

Darlin’ don’t you marry the milkman
‘Cause he’s always making the rounds
Don’t you marry no factory man
Comes home dirty and wet
And the mailman is always late

Get yourself a long-legged guitar picker
With a wicked wondering eye
He’ll make you happy then he’ll leave
The love that is there
Is a song in your heart
And I don’t think it’s gonna leave

It’s just like a mockingbird
Singing on a hillside
Chirping out his mothers song
Don’t you weep, don’t you fret
Don’t you moan don’t you wail
Can’t you hear that whippoorwill calling
