In the tavern, all night sittin' in the tavern
In the tavern singin' songs

[Chorus:]
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop
Though he loves his mate
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late

Don't look at me, sweetheart, with scorn in your eyes
Been out all night, gonna tell you no lies
Stopped in one place, heard them singin' a song
Heard them singin' a song
Like a lonely sparrow, started singin' along

Just singin'

[Chorus]

In walked a blonde and, dear, she asked me to dance
I told that blonde that there wasn't a chance
I love my kids and my beautiful wife
And my beautiful wife
That's the honest truth, dear, and I swear by my life

Just singin'

[Chorus]

In the tavern, all night sittin' in the tavern,
In the tavern singin' songs

There's things I am sweetheart, and things that I ain't
'Cause I'm a man and a man is no saint
Won't you forgive 'cause I'm tellin' you true
'Cause I'm tellin' you true
I was in the tavern only thinkin' of you

Just singin'

[Chorus]

Just singin'

[Chorus]

In the tavern, all night sittin' in the tavern,
In the tavern singin' songs
