Mockingbirds typically repeat a phrase three or four times. What you describe doesn't sound that far out of the ordinary. I have heard mockingbirds with more extensive repertoires than others. I don't know if they learn new songs as they get older. Or, perhaps with more competition they need to try harder to impress the ladies.

It could also be a regional thing.

Could you record it and post it?
