She'd never known acceptance
She'd never known the word
She says, "I like to call myself M
But my real name is Mockingbird"

Mockingbird Franklin
So how do you do?
Mockingbird Franklin
I'm a lot like you

She says her mother is gone now
She says it never got cured
I said, "I'm sorry, but is it true
Did she really name you Mockingbird?"

Mockingbird Franklin
Broke your heart in two
Mockingbird Franklin
I'm a lot like you

Mockingbird, don't you change
Just because you're not like them
Oh, Mockingbird, you're not the same
Alone along the sidewalk

The steps are barely heard
It's kinda that it's her name
'Cause she's nothing like a mockingbird
Nothing like a mockingbird

Mockingbird Franklin
Don't it get to you?
Mockingbird Franklin
I'm a lot like you

I'm a lot like you
It's true
