Johnny Tillotson – Yellow Bird lyrics

Yellow bird way up in banana tree
Yellow bird you sit all alone like me
Did you lady friend leave the nest again
That is very sad makes me feel so bad
You can fly away in the sky away
You're more lucky than me

I also have a pretty girl she's not with me today
They're all the same those pretty girls
They make a nest then they fly away

Yellow bird way up in banana tree...
[ guitar ]
Wish that I were a yellow bird I'd fly away with you
But I am not a yellow bird so here I sit got nothing I can do

Yellow bird way up in banana tree...
(Yellow bird) you're more lucky than me
(Yellow bird) you're more lucky than me
(Yellow bird)
