The Lyrics

It crossed my mind that a yellow bird sitting in a banana tree might not have the most perfect of camouflage...
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree.
Yellow bird, you look jus' like one to me

You banana-shaped, me a stupid ape
It a small mistake for an ape to make
You can't fly away, t'ink you'll die away.
Den be eaten by me.

I also had a probble-em, when I climb into tree
Dough I'm same shape as silly ape
Dey look for branch, den grab on me
Yell OW! bird, yell OW! bird.

Yes, dat sound absurd, don't it little bird?
You no good to munch - much to small for lunch
Like a snack attack or a Little Mac
You more little dan me.

Glad that I'm not a yellow bird, I might be caught like you.
But I big ape, not yellow bird,
So here I sit. On what I chew?
Yellow bird, yellow bird.
