EVERLY BROTHERS (1958) -  Bird Dog

 

Johnny is a joker (he's a bird)

A very funny joker (he's a bird)

But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog)

His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)

Johnny is a joker that's a-tryin' to steal my baby (he's a bird dog)

Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)

He sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)

But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)

To me he's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)

Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he's a bird dog)

Hey, bird dog get away from my quail

Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail

Birddog you better leave my  /lovey-dove alone

Hey, bird dog, get away from my chick

Hey, bird dog, you better get away quick

Birddog you better find a chickenlittle of your own

BREAK 

Johnny kissed the teacher (he's a bird)

He tiptoed up to reach her (he's a bird)

Well he's the teachers pet now (he's a dog)

What he wants he can get now (what a dog)

He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he's a bird dog)

Hey, bird dog get away from my quail

Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail

Birddog you better leave my  /lovey-dove alone

Hey, bird dog, get away from my chick

Hey, bird dog, you better get away quick

Birddog you better find a chickenlittle of your own

He's bird……he's a dog
