Leatherwing Bat - Lyrics & Chords

 

Am 
"Hi," said the little  leatherwing bat,
Am 
"I'll tell you the   reason that,
Am 
The  reason that I  fly by night,
E7  Am 
I have  lost my  heart's delight."

Chorus:

Am 
Li li low, and a  diddle um-a-day,
Am 
Li li low, and a  diddle um-a-day,
Am 
Li li low, and a  diddle um-a-day
E7  Am 
Hey  lee  lee, and  lye li lo.

"Hi," said the little mourning dove,
"I'll tell you how to regain your love,
Court her night,  court her day,
Never give her time to say you nay."

"Hi," said the owl with head so white,
"Another day and a lonesome night,
Thought I heard a pretty girl say
She'd court all night and sleep all day."

"Hey," said the redbird, sitting on a chair,
"Once I courted a lady fair,
She got saucy and then she fled,
Ever since then my head's been red."

"Hi," said the blackbird, sitting on a bench,
"Once I courted a handsome wench,
She got fickle and turned her back,
Ever since then I've  dressed in black."

"Hi," said the bluebird as he flew,
"If I were a young man I would have two,
If one got saucy and wanted to go,
I'd have a new string to my bow."

"Hi," said the  jaybird sitting in a tree,
"When I was a young man I had three,
Two got saucy and took to flight,
The one that's  left don't treat me right."
