Hi there, I'm new to the cafe and I don't actually know if this would be an appropriate place to look for this song. It's Lullaby of birdland by George Shearing.

I'm looking for the lyrics, so if any one out there has a clue, I'd be gratefull if they could post it on this thread.

thanks awfully

M'lady P.

Lullaby of Birdland, that's what I
Always hear, when you sigh
Never in my word land could there be words to reveal
In a phrase, how I feel

Have you ever heard two turtledoves
Bill and coo, when they love
That's the kind of magic music we make with our lips
When we kiss

And there's a weepy old willow
He really knows how to cry
That's how I'd cry in my pillow
If you should tell me hello and goodbye

Lullaby of Birdland, whisper low
Kiss me sweet and we'll go
Flying high in Birdland, high in the sky up above
We're in love!

Thanks for both your replies, sorry I took so long to get back, but I have to fight with Parker for the iMac.

TTFN M'lady P.

Lyrics of this parody transcribed from the sound file at

(As sung by Homer & Jethro)

Thought he was bloodhound, but he ain't.
Show him blood and he'll faint.
Lullaby of bird dog, won't you please tell me what kind
Is this canine of mine?

Look at him a-droolin' down his neck.
He's a spitz, sure as heck.
Lullaby of bird dog, I'm goin' off of my nut.
What a mutt!

We call our doggie Napoleon.
Named him for his bony parts.
Wins any race that he runs in.
That's if we give him a three-meter (?) start.

Can it be that he's a basset hound,
Built too close to the ground?
Lullaby of bird dog, this can't be Lassie, I know.
This is Joe.

We had a poodle named Fido. He was a smart little pup.
He could stand up on his hind legs.
That's if you hold both of his front legs up.

He's a mathematical son-of-a-gun.
Puts down three, carries one.
Lullaby of bird dog, this is the end of our song.
Dog gone!

[Recorded by Homer & Jethro on "At the Country Club," 1960.]
