END Lyrics: Alright Yeah Well now (VERSE 1) I must admit I can't explain Any of these thoughts Racin' through my brain It's true Baby I'm howlin' for you Alright (VERSE 2) There's something wrong With this plot The actors here Have not got A clue Baby I'm howlin' for you (CHORUS 1) Da da da da da (x8) (VERSE 3) Mockingbird Can't you see? Little girls Got a hold on me Like glue Baby I'm howlin' for you Yeah (VERSE 4) Throw the ball To the stick Swing and miss And a catcher's mitt Strike Two Baby I'm howlin' for you Yeah Yeah (CHORUS 2) Da da da da da (x8) (SOLO) (CHORUS 3) Da da da da da (x8) END
