The Lyrics

Maybe it's a Pollen-esian Parody?
Yellow Dust

Yellow dust, Is falling out of the trees.
Yellow dust, Comes down and it makes me sneeze.

Do you like it when, it is Spring again?
Does is make you sad? Does it make you glad?
It don’ t bother you? It don’t make you sneeze?
You’re more lucky than me.

I also have a pretty car. It’s not pretty today.
They look the same, the pretty cars.
They’re all dusty, and spotted that way.

Yell-ow Dust. I’m choking on Yellow Dust.
Yell-ow Dust. What in the… heck is… this stuff?

Let it go away, Maybe blow away,
Hope storm coming soon. Rain from night to noon.
Wash the yellow off, So I just don’t cough.
It might kill me some day!

Wish that there were no yellow dust.
So my nose wouldn’t run.
But there still is that yellow dust.
So here I sit.
Can’t go out and have fun.

Yell--ow Dust. (Cough, cough, cough)
Yell--ow Dust. (Cough, cough, cough)
Yell--ow Dust. (Cough, cough, cough)

Yipes! I found that Harry Belafonte never sang Yellow Bird. He sang Don't Ever Love Me, with the same tune. Others used the tune to sing Yellow Bird. Just Google: Harry Belafonte - Don't Ever Love Me
