Nikki Yanofsky - Lullaby of Birdland

Nikki Yanofsky - Lullaby of Birdland

Lullaby of Birdland est une chanson composée en 1952 par George Shearing. Les paroles sont créditées B. Y. Forster, pseudonyme de George David Weiss. Le titre est dédié à « Bird » (Charlie Parker) et au Birdland, club de jazz de New York nommé également en son honneur.

Oh, Lullaby of birdland, that's what I
Always hear when you sigh,
Never in my wordland could there be ways to reveal
In a phrase how I feel
Have you ever heard two turtle doves
Bill and coo, when they love?
That's the kind of magic music we make with our lips
When we kiss'
And there's a weepy old willow
He really knows how to cry,
That's how I'd cry in my pillow
If you should tell me farewell and goodbye
Lullaby of birdland whisper low
Kiss me sweet, and we'll go
Flying high in birdland, high in the sky up above
Oh because we're in love
