(Hummin', hummin', hummin', hummin'.)

Humming Bird, Humming Bird should be your name.
(Humming Bird should be your name.)
Too restless to settle, too wild to tame.
(Too restless, too wild to tame.)
Too restless to settle, too wild to tame,
Humming Bird, Humming Bird should be your name.

(Hummin', hummin', hummin', hummin'.)

Humming Bird, Humming Bird winging along.
(Humming Bird winging along.)
No tender young blossom can hold you for long.
(No blossom can hold you for long.)
No tender young blossom can hold you for long.
Humming Bird, Humming Bird winging along.

I'd rather be lonely, I'd rather be blue.
Yes, I'd rather spend my whole life without you,
Than feather a nest to be shattered apart,
By the hum, hum of your Humming Bird heart.

(Hum, hum, hum, hum.)

Humming Bird, Humming Bird, feathered so fine,
(Humming Bird, feathered so fine.)
If I clipped your wings it would not make you mine.
(Oh no, it would not make you mine.)
If I clipped your wings it would not make you mine;
Humming Bird, Humming Bird, feathered so fine.

(Hummin', hummin', hummin', hummin'.)

Humming Bird, Humming Bird, fly right on by.
Some folks like to gamble but darling, not I.
Some folks like to gamble but darling, not I.
Humming Bird, Humming Bird, fly right on by.

I'd rather be lonely, I'd rather be blue.
Yes, I'd rather spend my whole life without you,
Than feather a nest to be shattered apart,
By the hum, hum of your Humming Bird heart.

(Hum, hum, hum, hum, hum.)

By the hum, hum of your Humming Bird heart.

(Hummin', hummin', hummin', hummin'.)
