Yellow Bird

Alan Bergman - Marilyn Keith - Norman Luboff

© Frank Music, ASCAP

Yellow bird up high in banana tree
Yellow bird you sit all alone like me

Did your 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 the pretty girls
Take tenderness then they fly away

Yellow bird up high in banana tree
Yellow bird you sit all alone like me

Let her fly away in the sky away
Take a town and soon take from night to noon
Black and yellow you like banana too
They might pick you someday

Wish that I was a yellow bird I'd fly away with you
But I am not a yellow bird so here I sit nothing else to do

Yellow bird yellow bird yellow bird

You Can't Be True Dear

Gerhard Ebeler - Hans Otten - Hal Cotton

© Biltmore Music, ASCAP

You can't be true dear there's nothing more to say
I trusted you dear hoping oh but we'd find a way
Your kisses tell me that you and I are through
But I'll keep loving you although you can't be true
[ organ ]
Your kisses tell me that you and I are through
But I'll keep loving you although you can't be true

Highways Are Happy Ways

Tommie Malie - Larry Shay - Harry Harris

© Forster Music, ASCAP

Highways are happy ways
When they lead to home sweet home
Highways are happy ways
Doesn't matter where you roam

And as you travel along those ribbons of gray
They all unravel and pull you homeward to stay
Cause highways are happy ways
When they lead to home sweet home
[ instrumental ]
And as you travel along those ribbons of gray...
When they lead to home sweet home

I Miss You So

Sid Robin - Bertha Scott - Jimmy Henderson

© Leeds Music, ASCAP

Those happy hours I spent with you
That lovely afterglow
Most of all (most of all) I miss you so
Your sweet caresses each rendezvous
Your voice so soft and low
Most of all (most of all) I miss you so

You once filled my heart with no regrets no fears
Now you'll find my heart filled to the top with tears
I'll always love you and want you so how much you'll never know
Most of all (most of all) I miss you so

Once you promised we will never part my dear
Now I long to see the day I'll find you near
I'll always love you and want you so how much you'll never know
Most of all (most of all) I miss you so

Most of all (most of all) I miss you so
More than you know

I Found A Million Dollar Baby (In A Five And Ten Cent Store)

Billy Rose - Mort Dixon - Harry Warren

© Remick Music, ASCAP

It was a lucky April shower
It was the most convenient door
I found a million dollar baby
In a five and ten cent store

The rain continued for and hour
I hung around till three or four
Around a million dollar baby
From a five and ten cent store

She was out in China and when she made those eyes
Say I kept buyin' China until the crowd got wise

Yean and incidentally
If you should run into a shower
Step inside my cottage door
And meet the million dollar baby
From a five an' ten cent store

She was out in China and when she made those eyes
I kept buyin' China until the crowd got wise

Incidentally...

Lullaby In Ragtime

Sylvia Fine

© Dena Music, ASCAP

Won't you play the music so the cradle can rock
To a lullaby in ragtime
Sleepy hands are creeping to the end of the clock
Play a lullaby in ragtime
You can tell the sandman is on his way
By the way that they play
As still as the trill of a thrush in a twilight hush

So you can hear the rhythm of the ripples on the side of the boat
As you sail away to dreamland
High above the moon you hear a silvery note
As the sandman takes your hand
So rock a bye my baby don't you cry my baby
Sleepy time is high
Won't you rock me to a ragtime lullaby
[ piano ]
That's a lullaby in ragtime
[ piano ]
Play a lullaby in ragtime

You can tell the sandman is on his way
By the way that they play
As still as the trill of a thrush in a twilight hush

So you can hear the rhythm of the ripples on the side of the boat...
I said a ragtime lullaby
don't you cry my baby
sleepy-time is nigh
Won't you rock me to a ragtime lullaby
