Hush, yo, don't nobody say a flocking word
Just put the sign on the door, the Do Not Disturb
I'm bout to show these people how to kill a mockingbird
Thought gets some avian imagery going with his use of the word “flocking,” followed by a pun on the classic 1960 novel To Kill a Mockingbird
He’s also mixing that literary reference together with the classic lines from the lullaby, “Hush, Little Baby”
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word
Mama’s going to buy you a mocking bird.
