Tra-la-la, twiddly-dee-dee
It gives me a thrill
To wake up in the morning to the mockingbird's trill

Tra-la-la, twiddly-dee-dee
There's peace and goodwill
You're welcome as the flowers on Mockin' Bird Hill

When the sun in the morning
Peeps over the hill,

And kisses the roses 'round my windowsill

Then my heart fills with gladness
When I hear the trill
Of the birds in the treetops on Mockin' Bird Hill

  6. Heyyyyy, it's not fair that you still have flowers blooming....pppfffftttt:-)~ That's another bird we don't get here, mocking birds. You got some wonderful shots of them, thank you for sharing them with us.

    I've just come back from running some errands and there were some snowflakes flying around. Apparently we're supposed to have our first little snowfall overnight so we'll see if it happens:-) xoxo


    I always wonder why the Mocking bird is called the mocking bird.

    When I was 15, I had to study to Kill a Mocking bird for English. I really loved that book and the movie.

  8. How songs have changed, great words
