Lyrics

Yellow Bird coming 'round to get a taste of something really sweet; yellow bird, I see you 'gainst the sky, yellow bird why did you fly away?
Yellow Dog, I had one in my bed at night sleeping at my feet, like a sentry at my call--that yellow dog's not bad, not bad at all
And like the yellow moon that sets the hills aglow, there's things about yellow birds and dogs that I will never know. But I know that yellow bird of love has flown
Obsession with the color of my true love's hair, and now I look around and cannot find him anywhere, anymore. But I knew love for sure.
Yellow shoes. I wear them to the movies where I sit and watch my dreams. Every night, just myself and the lovers on the screen--yellow shoes.
And like the yellow moon that sets the hills aglow, there's things about yellow birds and dogs that I will never know. But I know that yellow bird of love has flown
Obsession with the color of my true love's hair, and now I look around and cannot find him anywhere, anymore. But I knew love for sure.
Yellow bird, where have you flown? To another nest? Why must I go on? Why won't you fly this way again? Oooo ooo, yellow bird; ooo ooo yellow bird. oooo yellow bird. Oooo yellow bird.
