Description

I have seen the lark soar high at morn
Heard his song up in the blue
I have heard the blackbird pipe his note
The thrush and the linnet too
But there's none of them can sing so sweet
My singing bird as you

If I could lure my singing bird
From his own cozy nest
If I could catch my singing bird
I would warm him on my beast
For there's none of them can sing so sweet
My singing bird as you

Classic stuff, in the great folk story telling tradition- lovely voice, melodies and subtle backing vocals

This is probably the best version of this I've ever heard of this beautiful song.

The description could do with an update:

My Singing Bird

I have seen the lark soar high at morn
Heard his song up in the blue
I have heard the blackbird pipe his note
The thrush and the linnet too

But there's none of them can sing so sweet
My singing bird as you
Ah, ah ah, ah, ah, ah ah ah ah ah,
My singing bird as you.

If I could lure my singing bird
From his own cozy nest
If I could catch my singing bird
I would warm him on my breast

For there's none of them can sing so sweet
My singing bird as you
Ah, ah ah, ah, ah, ah ah ah ah ah,
My singing bird as you.

Then I will climb that high, high tree
And I'll rob that wild bird's nest
And I'll bring back that singing bird
To the arms where she will rest

For there's none of them can sing so sweet
My singing bird as you
Ah, ah ah, ah, ah, ah ah ah ah ah,
My singing bird as you.

I look forward to listening to more of your singing, Jim.
