Em C#m7-5 F#7-9 B7 Lullaby of birdland - that's what I Em7 CM7 Am7 D9 Always hear when you sigh; Bm7 Em7 Never in my word land Am7 Cdim G C9 F#m7-5 B7 Could there be ways to reveal in a phrase how I feel. Em C#m7-5 F#m7-9 B7 Have you ever heard two turtle doves Em7 CM7 AM7 D9 Bill and coo when they love? Bm7 Em7 That's the kind of magic Am7 Cdim G D7 G G/F# Music we make with our lips when we kiss. Bridge: E9 E7-9 Am Am7 And there's a weepy old willow - D9 Cdim G G/F# He really knows how to cry! E9 E7-9 Am Am7 That's how I'd cry on my pillow D9 Cdim G B7 If you should tell me farewell and good-bye. Em C#m7-5 F#7-9 B7 Lullaby of birdland - whisper low, Em7 CM7 Am7 D9 Kiss me sweet, and we'll go Bm7 Em7 Flyin' high in birdland, Am7 Cdim G C9 F#m7-5 B7 High in the sky up above all because we're in love. Repeat Bridge: Repeat last verse Coda: Am7 Cdim G High in the sky up above Am7 D9 Cdim G C9 Am7 G#7 G All because we're- in - love.
