4.  Bird that Has Flown - Notes and Lyrics

 

Bird That Has Flown is a light-hearted song about the eternal dance between lads and lasses. Hearts can get hurt in the process, of course, but each part of that dance brings us closer to the one we can really be in love with...

 

Lyrics 

Well, a lassie is just like a flower, pretty rose, she will bloom in the sun.

And a laddie is just like a honey bee stealing kisses and having his fun.

Shed a tear for the bird that has flown.  Breathe a sigh for the blossom that's gone

Sing a song for the lad with the twinklin' eye  Say a prayer that the heart finds a home.

 

 

And a bluebird is just like a woman's heart on the wing with a love song she flies

In the arms of her lover she dreams at night but the morning sun tells of his lies.

Shed a tear for the bird that has flown.  Breathe a sigh for the blossom that's gone.

Sing a song for the lad with the twinklin' eye.  Say a prayer that the heart finds a home.

 

 

Now, there once was a laddie that loved me but the joy that I had is undone

Like a rose in the fall, it has blown away, like a bluebird in winter, love's gone.

 

Shed a tear for the bird that has flown.  Breathe a sigh for the blossom that's gone.

Sing a song for the lad with the twinklin' eye.  Say a prayer that the heart finds a home.

 

 

 

Oh, there's joy to be found in the courtin' and there's none if you're standing alone

Well, it's not that I haven't been here before; I just thought that my heart found a home.

 

Shed a tear for the bird that has flown.  Breathe a sigh for the blossom that's gone.

Sing a song for the lad with the twinklin' eye.  Say a prayer that the heart finds a home.
