Sparrow in the Treetop

Lyrics

Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Though he loves his mate,
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late.

Don't look at me, sweetheart, with scorn in your eyes,
Been out all night, gonna tell you no lies,
Stopped in one place, heard them singin' a song,
(Heard them singin' a song)
Like a lonely sparrow, started singin' along.

Just singin'
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Though he loves his mate,
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late.

In walked a blonde and, dear, she asked me to dance,
I told that blonde that there wasn't a chance,
I love my kids and my beautiful wife,
(And my beautiful wife)
That's the honest truth, dear, and I swear by my life.

Just singin'
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Though he loves his mate,
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late.

(In the tavern, all night sittin' in the tavern,
In the tavern singin' songs).

There's things I am sweetheart, and things that I ain't,
'cause I'm a man and a man is no saint,
Won't you forgive 'cause I'm tellin' you true,
'cause I'm tellin' you true
I was in the tavern only thinkin' of you.

Just singin'
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Though he loves his mate,
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop,
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late.
