Lyrics:
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 sad
Make me feel so bad

You can fly away
In the sky away
You more lucky than me

I also have a pretty man
He not with me today
They all the same
The pretty men
Make them 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 on yellow too
Like banana too
They might pick you someday

{instrumental interlude}

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

Did your lady friend
Leave the nest again
That is very sad
Make me feel so bad

You can fly away
In the sky away
You're more lucky than me

Yellow bird
Just you and me
Yellow bird
And a little one make t(h)ree

??? look likes ????

And Harry Belafonte make three
