One of a dozen multi-layered top-ten hits for guitarist Les Paul and vocalist Mary Ford. In this hit recording, Les Paul superimposed several guitar parts behind breezy-voiced Mary Fordís close microphone harmony. Her light-hearted delivery, his guitar and their overdubbing technique produced another hit in 1951, How High the Moon. Mockiní Bird Hill was also recorded by Slim Whitman and Patti Page.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"When the sun in the mornin' peeps over the hill... I hear the trill of those birds in the tree tops on mockin' bird hill"
