The Everly Brothers - Bird dog
Tekst en muziek: Felice en Boudleaux Bryant
(1958)






Johnny is a joker
He’s a bird
A very funny joker
He’s a bird
But when he jokes my honey
He’s a dog
His jokin’ ain’t so funny
What a dog
Johnny is a joker, that’s a tryin’ to steal my baby
He’s a bird dog



Johnny sings a love song
Like a bird
He sings the sweetest love song
Ever heard
But when he sings to my gal
What a howl
To me he’s just a wolf dog
On the prowl
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby
He’s a bird dog



Hey bird dog, get away from my quail
Hey bird dog, you’re on the wrong trail
Bird dog, you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey bird dog, get away from my chick
Hey bird dog, you better get away quick
Bird dog, you better find a chicken little of your own



Johnny kissed the teacher
He’s a bird
He tiptoed up to reach her
He’s a bird
Well, he’s the teacher’s pet now
He’s a dog
What he wants he can get now
What a dog
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby
He’s a bird dog



Hey bird dog, get away from my quail
Hey bird dog, you’re on the wrong trail
Bird dog, you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey bird dog, get away from my chick
Hey bird dog, you better get away quick
Bird dog, you better find a chicken little of your own



He’s a bird
He’s a dog
He’s a bird dog
