The bird with feathers of blue
Is waiting for you
Back in your own back yard
You'll see your castle in Spain
Through your window pane
Back in your own back yard

Now you can go to the east
Go to the west
Bit some day you'll come
Weary at heart, back where you started from

You'll find your happiness lies
Right under your eyes
Back in your own back yard

The bird with feathers of blue
Is waiting for you
Back in your own back yard
You'll see your castle in Spain
Through your window pane
Back in your own back yard

Now you can fly to the east
Fly to the west
Bit some day you'll come
Weary at heart, back where you started from

You'll find your happiness lies
Right under your eyes
Back in your, your own back yard
