Pack up all my care and woe
Here I go swingin' low
Bye, bye, black-bird

Where somebody waits for me
Sugar's sweet, so is she
Bye, bye, blackbird

No one here can love or understand me
Oh, what hard luck stories they all hand me

Make my bed and light the light
I'll be home late tonight
Blackbird, bye, bye

Pack up all my care and woe
Here I go swingin' low
Bye (bye), bye (bye) blackbird (duoo-duoo-duoo-duoo-duoo-duoo)

Where somebody waits for me
Sugar's sweet, so is he
Bye (bye), bye (bye) blackbird (duoo-duoo-duoo-duoo-duoo-duoo)

No one here can love or understa-a-and me (ah-hah-hah)
Oh, what hard luck stories they all ha-a-and me (ah-hah-hah)

Make my bed and light the light
I'll be home late tonight
Blackbird

Make my bed and light the light
I'll be home late tonight
Leave your perch and take the sky
Too-da-loo, (farewell) bye, bye
Blackbirrrd, go take a fly oh little blackbird, bye

Make my bed and light the light
I'll be home late tonight
Blackbirrrrd, bye bye
