8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Yellow Bird, up high in banana tree.
Yellow Bird, you sit all alone like me.
Did your lady friend leave de nest again?  Dat is very sad, make me feel so bad.
You can fly away, in the sky away.  You more lucky dan me!
I also have a pretty gal,  She not with me today.
Dey all de same, de pretty gal,  Make dem de nest, dem de fly away.
