Blackbird, Blackbird
Singing the blues all day right outside my door
Blackbird, Blackbird
Why do you sit and say, “There's no sunshine in store”?
All through the winter you hung around
Now I begin to feel homeward bound
Blackbird, Blackbird
Gotta be on my way, where there's sunshine galore

Pack up all my care and woe, here I go singing low
Bye bye Blackbird, where somebody waits for me
Sugar's sweet, so is she
Bye bye Blackbird, no one here can love or understand me
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me
Make my bed and light the light, I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye bye

Blackbird, Blackbird
Calling me far away, I've been longing for you
Blackbird, Blackbird
What do I hear you say, “Skies are turning blue”?
I'm like a flower that's fading here
Where every hour is one long tear
Bluebird, bluebird, this is my lucky day
Now my dreams will come true

Pack up all my care and woe, here I go singing low
Bye bye Blackbird, where somebody waits for me
Sugar's sweet, so is she
Bye bye Blackbird, no one here can love or understand me
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me
Make my bed and light the light, I'll arrive late tonight
Blackbird, bye bye
