Humming Bird
The Chordettes Lyrics


(humming, humming, humming, humming)

Humming bird, humming bird should be your name,
(humming bird should be your name)
Too restless to settle, too wild to tame,
(too restless, too wild to tame)
Too restless to settle, too wild to tame,
Humming bird, humming bird should be your name.

(humming, humming, humming, humming)

Humming bird, humming bird winging along
(humming bird winging along)
No tender young blossom can hold you for long
(no blossom can hold you for long)
No tender young blossom can hold you for long
Humming bird, humming bird winging along

I'd rather be lonely, I'd rather be blue
Yes I'd rather spend my whole life without you
Than feather a nest to be shattered apart
By the hum, hum of your humming bird heart.

Humming bird, humming bird feathered so fine,
(humming bird feathered so fine)
If I clipped your wings it would not make you mine
(no, no it would not make you mine)
If I clipped your wings it would not make you mine
Humming bird, humming bird feathered so fine,

(humming, humming, humming)

Humming bird, humming bird fly right on by
Some folks like to gamble but, darling, not I
Some folks like to gamble but, darling, not I
Humming bird, humming bird fly right on by

I'd rather be lonely, I'd rather be blue
Yes I'd rather spend my whole life without you
Than feather a nest to be shattered apart
By the hum, hum of your humming bird heart.

By the hum, hum of your humming bird heart.

THIS SONG HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITES WHEN SUNG BY FRANKIE LAINE, BUT THESE GIRLS DO A VERY GOOD JOB WITH IT.

Wendell Freeman

The year was 1954...the car a '49 Ford coupe. Four kids with their favorite hep-cat aunt and her boyfriend...then this song comes on the radio..
