Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee

Every little bird in the tall oak tree

The wise old owl, the big black crow

A pretty little raven at the bird-band stand

Taught him how to do the bop, it was grand

They started going steady and bless my soul

He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole

He rocks in the tree top all day long

Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and a-singing his song

All the little birds on Jaybird Street

Well, a pretty little raven at the bird-band stand

Taught him how to do the bop, it was grand

They started going steady and bless my soul

He out-bopped the Buzzard and the Oriole

He rocks in the tree top all day long

Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and a-singing his song

All the little birds on Jaybird Street
