Mister Songbird

Ray Davies, released on The Great Lost Kinks Album, © unknown 1973

.

Won't you sing me a song or two,

Won't take you long to just sing to me please,

Won't you whistle a tune.

.

I got nothing to gain, I got nothing to lose,

But if you sing me a song,

You'll make me happy [?].

.

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

You help to keep my troubles away.

.

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

You help to keep my troubles away.

.

Mister, won't you sing me a song,

Won't you sing a little melody.

Won't you try to help me along,

Won't you sing a little song for me, oh yeah.

.

Sing me a song or two,

Won't take you long to just sing to me please,

Won't you whistle a tune.

.

Though I ain't got a beanie

'Cause I've nothing to dream,

So if you waiting for nothing,

Do something for me.

.

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

You help to keep my troubles away.

.

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

Sing Mr. Songbird,

You help to keep my troubles away.

You help to keep my problems away.

You help to keep the devil away.
