Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Yellow bird up high in banana tree
Yellow bird you sit all alone like me

4 ladies promenade, get back home and swing
Swing that man around, promenade the ring
You can fly away in the sky so high
You're more lucky than me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway round
Walk in and square thru 4 four hands
And then a right & left thru, veer to the left
And ferris wheel, centers slide thru
Star thru, pass thru
Swing your lady round and promenade
Wish I were a yellow bird then I'd fly away


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides promenade go halfway round
Down the middle pass the ocean there, extend
Swing thru and then the boys run right
Couples circulate and ferris wheel
A double pass thru, cloverleaf and go
Pass thru, swing and promenade
Wish I were a yellow bird then I'd fly away

Yellow Bird Lyrics ID: 659

Yellow bird,
Up high in banana tree
Yellow bird
You sit all alone like me

Did your lady friend
Leave the nest again
That is very sad
Make me feel so bad
You can fly away
In the sky away
You more lucky than me

I also have a pretty man
He not with me today
They all the same
The pretty men
Make them the nest
Then they fly away

Yellow bird
Up high in banana tree
Yellow bird
You sit all alone like me
Better fly away
In the sky away
Picker coming soon
Pick from night to noon
Black on yellow too
Like banana too
They might pick you someday

Wish that I was a yellow bird
I'd fly away with you
But I am not a yellow bird
So here I sit, nothing else to do

Yellow bird
Up high in banana tree
Yellow bird
You sit all alone like me

Did your lady friend
Leave the nest again
That is very sad
Make me feel so bad
You can fly away
In the sky away
You're more lucky than me

Yellow bird
Just you and me
Yellow bird
And a little one make t(h)ree

Composed by Norman Luboff.
Lyrics by Marilyn (nee Keith) and Alan Bergman.
Recorded by Sylvia Sims; Chris Isaak.
