Lyrics

The Bird Is in the Tree

 

On a summer day down at the bay, In the shade green and the clear sky blue

In the morning dew

Went for a walk down the fire lane, In the tall woods where the blue jays play

At the break of day

 

The bird is in the tree and he’s signing for me

The bird is in the tree and he’s signing for me

 

Then a little sprite came into my life, Jumped from a box and made me smile

I saw the light

And the night hawk flew in the summer sky, Then I knew for the rest of my life

The reason why

The bird is in the tree and he’s flying for me (x2)

The bird is in the tree and he’s signing for me

 

The kookaburra laughs at the end of the day, In the land down under so far away

Where they’ve gone to stay

I’ll be there one day and it won’t be long, Just like I was going to all along

And hear his song

 

 

The bird is in the tree and he’s laughing for me (x3)

The bird is in the tree
