Lyrics

Yellow bird
Up high in banana tree
Yellow bird
You sit all alone like me
Did your lady friend, leave the nest again?
This is very sad
Make me feel so bad
You can fly away
In the sky away
You're 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
(Yellow Bird!)
Up high in banana tree
Yellow bird
(Yellow Bird!)
You sit all alone like me
Better fly away
In the sky away
Picker coming soon?
Pick from night to noon
Black and yellow too
Like banana too
They might pick you someday
I wish that I was 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!)
Up in banana tree
Yellow bird
(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, more lucky than me.

Trivia

  • The lead female vocal is Holland Greco.
  • The man on the beach is the first prisoner Bugs insulted in the episode Jailbird and Jailbunny.
  • The English translation of this song (the version featured in this episode) was originally sung, in a much slower tone, by The Norman Luboff Choir.

Goofs

  • The iTunes album card for the song says that Sylvester and Tweety sing in the song, even though they do not have any lines though, people in the background of the song are heard shouting "Yellow Bird!", and those people may be Sylvester and Tweety.
  • The banana tree differs in many ways from a real banana tree.
