Lullaby of Birdland, that's what I 
 Always hear when you sigh
 Never in my wordland 
 Could there be ways to reveal 
In a phrase how I feel

Have you ever heard two turtle doves
Bill and coo when they love?
That's the kind of magic 
 Music we make with our lips when we kiss

And there's a weepy old willow 
He really knows how to cry
That's how I'd cry in my pillow 
If you should tell me farewell and goodbye 

 Lullaby of Birdland whisper low
Kiss me sweet and we'll go
Flyin' high in Birdland 
High in the sky up above 
All because we're in love
