YELLOW BIRD
(Jamaican Trad.)

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.
Did your lady friend leave the nest again?
That is very bad, Makes me feel so sad.
You can fly away, In the sky away
You more lucky than me.

I also have a handsome friend,
(he not with me today.)
They all the same, the handsome friends
Make 'em the nest. Then they fly away.

Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
Yellow bird, you sit all alone like me.
Better fly away, In the sky away,
Picker coming soon, Pick from night to noon.
Black and yellow you, Like banana too
They may pick you some day.

Wish that I was a yellow bird,
I fly away with you.
But I am not a yellow bird
So I sit, nothing else to do.
