Lyrics for Yellow Bird

Yellow bird,
Up high in banana tree,
Yellow bird,
You sit all alone like me

Did your lady frien’,
Leave de nest again?
Dat is very sad,
Make me feel so bad,
You can fly away,
In the sky away,
You’re more lucky dan me.

Lyrics for ‘Rockin’ Robin’ (Michael Jackson Version)

He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet.
Rockin’ robin, rock rock
Rockin’ robin’
Blow rockin’ robin
‘Cause we’re really gonna rock tonight.
Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree
The wise old owl, the big black crow
Flappin’ their wings singing go bird go.
Rockin’ robin, rock rock
Rockin’ robin’
Blow rockin’ robin
‘Cause we’re really gonna rock tonight.
Pretty little raven at the bird-band stand
Told them how to do the bob and it was grand
They started going steady and bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole.
He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet.
Rockin’ robin, rock rock
Rockin’ robin’
Blow rockin’ robin
‘Cause we’re really gonna rock tonight.
Pretty little raven at the bird-band stand
Told them how to do the bob and it was grand
They started going steady and bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole.
He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet.
Rockin’ robin, rock rock
Rockin’ robin’
Blow rockin’ robin
‘Cause we’re really gonna rock tonight.

Lyrics for ‘Hallelujah’

Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
