lyrics

Narrator:
Where is the liquor store; where's the drug store,
Where is the liquor store; where's the drug store,
Where is the liquor store; where's the drug store,
Where is your lost love?

Mockingbirds:
"ya dada dada da da da da da"
"ya dada dada da da da da da"
"ya dada dada da da da da da,"
sang the mockingbirds.

Narrator:
So you woke on a patch of lawn
with a head like a clanging gong
and you're trying hard to just remember....

By the streets full of banging brass
in the chill of the weeping grass
you're relenting fast to sweet surrender....

Mockingbirds:
"Where is the liquor store; where's the drug store,"
"Where is the liquor store; where's the drug store,"
"Where is the liquor store; where's the drug store,"
sang the mockingbirds.

Character:
One for my lover, and one for my father,
and one for my brother, and
one for the vicar, and one for my sister,
and one for my fellow man, man....

Mockingbirds:
"Where is your lover? Right where you left her,"
"Where is your lover? Right where you left her,"
"Where is your lover? Right where you left her,"
sang the mockingbirds.

"ya dada dada da da da da da"
"ya dada dada da da da da da"
"ya dada dada da da da da da,"
sang the mockingbirds.
