Mama gonna buy you a mocking bird
And if that mocking bird don't sing
Mama going to buy you a diamond ring

Mama going to buy you a diamond ring
and if that diamond ring don't shine
mama going to take you to a private eye
and if that private eye can't see
He better not take them away from me
CHORUS X3

Blowin' in the Wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind. How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
--Bob Dylan

Where have all the flowers gone?

1. Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing.

The girls have picked them ev'ry one.
Oh, when will you ever learn?
Oh, when will you ever learn?

2. Where have all the young girls gone?
Long time passing.

They've taken husbands, every one.
Oh, when will you ever learn?
Oh, when will you ever learn?
3. Where have all the young men gone?

Long time ago.
