* Yellow bird, up high in banana tree,
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.
Did you lady friend, leave your 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 had a pretty girl,
she’s not with me today.
They’re all the same, those pretty girls.
Take tenderness, then they fly away.
Let her fly away, in the sky away,
Picker coming soon, take from night to noon.
Black and yellow you, like banana too.
They might pick you someday.
Wish that I were a yellow bird,
I’d fly away with you, but I’m not a yellow bird,
So here I sit, nothing else to do.
Yellow bird, yellow bird…….
