John Mellencamp – Baltimore Oriole lyrics

Baltimore oriole
Took a look at that mercury, forty below
No life for a lady
To be draggin' her feathers around in the snow

Leaving me blue, off she flew
To the Tangipaho
Where a two-timing jaybird
Met the divine Miss O

I'd like to ruffle his plumage
Baltimore oriole
Mess around with the big guy
Till he sensed her wings
Forgivin' is easy it's a woman like
Now and then could happen to this thing

Send her back home
Home ain't home without her warbling
How she could sing
Make a lonely man happy
Baltimore oriole

Send her back home
Home ain't home without her warbling
How she could sing
Make a lonely man happy
Baltimore oriole
Come down from that bough
Fly back to your daddy now
Baltimore oriole
