Verse:
I'm dreaming now of Hally,
Sweet Hally, Sweet Hally.
I'm dreaming now of Hally,
For the thought of her is one that never dies.
 
She's sleeping in the valley,
The valley, The valley.
She's sleeping in the valley,
And the mocking bird is singing where she lies.
 
Chorus:
Listen To The Mocking Bird, Listen To The Mocking Bird,
The mocking bird still singing o'er the grave.
Listen To The Mocking Bird, Listen To The Mocking Bird,
Still singing where the weeping willows wave.
