There is a singer everyone has heard
At night he turns into a Mocking Bird
If I whistle in the dark, he'll do that too.
I met him on the road,
At the close of day,
He talk like me, he walk this way
I said Mocking Bird "You aint no-way, no return".
And there is a singer everybody knows,
he makes rounds of the late night shows,
Shake the hands of the host
And the masquerade is on,
You turn him off on the radio,
and he say "me and my shadow",
Shoot out the lights my shadows gone.
Down at the bottom of the kelena bay,
find my raychad I can see your face,
If I'm tied up to the tracks,
Then he's tied up to the road,
(Down at the bottom of the kelena bay),
And it's one for the money, two for the show,
For me and my shadow.
Shoot out the lights and my shadow's gone,
Shoot out the lights and my shadow...gone.
There is a shadow everyone has heard,
At night he turns into a Mocking Bird,
If I whistle in the dark, he'll do that too,
I have met him on the road today,
A silhouette on a black highway
I said "You can have this world,
This world is not my home",
Then he said " You can keep this world,
This world is not my home".
