The Mills Brothers - Yellow bird
Tekst: Alan en Marilyn Bergman / Muziek: Norman Luboff
(1960)






Yellow bird, up high in banana tree
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me



Did your lady friend
Leave your nest again
That is very sad
Makes me feel so bad
You can fly away
In the sky away
You’re more lucky than me



I also had a pretty girl
She’s not with me today
They’re all the same, the pretty girls
Take tenderness, then they fly away



Yellow bird, up high in banana tree
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me



Let her fly away
In the sky away
Pick a town and soon
Take from night to noon
Black and yellow you
Like banana too
They might pick you some day



Wish that I was a yellow bird
I’d fly away with you
But I am not a yellow bird
So here I sit, nothing else to do





Yellow bird
Yellow bird
Yellow bird
