lyrics

Little birdie, little birdie come sing to me your song
Sing it now that I am with you
I won't be with you long

If I were some little birdie I'd never build my nest on the ground
I'd build my nest in my pretty one's breast
I never never would come down

I'd rather be in some dark holler where the sun don't ever shine
Than to see you with another
When you promised to be mine

Don't you see that lonesome turtle dove flying from pine to pine
She mourning for her own true love
As I do mourn for mine

Little birdie, little birdie come sing to me your song
Sing it now that I am with you
I won't be with you long
