This is a great site for teachers. Real living language with feeling and rhythm.

I'm looking for one of the orginal versions of "Daddy's gonna buy me a mockingbird, And if that mockingbird don't sing..."

I have the "jazzed up" version by JUBA, a Canadian group, but I would like my Korean students to hear the original version. My colleague and I are planning to have our students write their own versions.

Many thanks,

That song is in DigiTrad under the name "HUSH, L'IL BABY" (click). You might find some OLDER versions, but you won't find the ORIGINAL version -- or if you do and you can prove it, you'd win the Nobel prize in ethnomusicology (if there were such a thing).

There are other versions of the song here (click). Guiltily, I will also provide a link to the James Taylor and Carly Simon Version (click).
