Yellow Bird

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

Did your lady friend leave the nest again
That is very sad make me feel so bad
You can fly away in the sky away
You more lucky than me

I also have a pretty gal, She's not with me today
They're all the same, those pretty gals
Make them the nest, then they fly away

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

Better fly away, in the sky away
Picker coming soon, pick from night to noon
Black on yellow too, like banana too
They might pick you someday

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