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, makes me feel so bad.
You can fly away, in the sky away -
You're more lucky than me.

I also have a pretty girl - she's not with me today.
They're all the same, the pretty girls...
They tend 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 and yellow you, like banana too -
They might pick you some day.
Wish that I were a yellow bird - I fly away with you.
But I am not a yellow bird -
So here I sit, nothing else to do.
Yellow bird, yellow bird, yellow bird
