[Cm]Have you ever [A]heard two [D7b9]turtle dove[G7b9]s     
[Cm]bill and coo [F7]when they lo[Bb7]ve?    
[Eb]Thats the kind of [Cm]magic

[Gm]flyin' high in [Cm]Birdland,
[F7]high in the sky[Bb7b9] up above[Eb]    [Bb7b9]    
we're in [Eb]love.[G7#9]    

Lullaby of Birdland thats what I
always her when you sigh.
Never in my word-land
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?
Thats 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!
Thats 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
flyin' high in Birdland,
high in the sky up above
we're in love.
