Mom Sings

Been a while, and though I think of Mom daily I haven't had much to say about it, until today.
I have a cassette tape that my Brother and I recorded on when we were little kids.  You can hear my mom talking in the background on some parts and then there is a little part where she sings, "..like a mockingbird in a windy tree. And that ain't no place for me. Been there one time, been there two times, been there three times more than I care to be. But we're gonna make it through, gitchy goomy ...,".
I have played that part over many many times in the past and never knew what song it was.  So today, for reasons I'm not sure of, I felt compelled to search the lyrics and I was quite surprised that I actually found them.  The song is "Gitchy Goomy" by Neil Diamond.
