LYRICS

Little Birdie

Little birdie, little birdie
Canít you sing to me your song
Got a short time for to stay here
And a long time to be gone.

Married woman, married woman,
Can't you see what you have done.
Youíve caused me for to love you
When your heart is dead and gone.

Little birdie, little birdie
Wonít you sing to me your song
Got a short time for to stay here
And a long time to be gone.

I'd rather be down in some dark holler
Where that sun refuse to shine
Than to see you with another
When you promised to be mine.

Little birdie, little birdie
Canít you sing to me your song
Got a short time for to stay here
And a long time to be gone.
