She Wears Red Feathers Lyrics

Artist: Guy Mitchell


She Wears Red Feathers
Guy Mitchell
Written by Bob Merrill

- Peaked at # 19 in 1953


(She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt)
(She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt)
She lives on just cokey-nuts and fish from the sea
A rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes
And love in her heart for me

I work in a London bank, respectable position
From nine to three they serve you tea
But ruin your disposition
Each night of music calls, rather lost I seem
And once a pearl of a native girl came smilin' right at me

She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt
She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt
She lives on just cokey-nuts and fish from the sea
A rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes
And love in her heart for me

Goodbye to the London bank, I started in a-sailin'
The fourteenth day from Mandalay I spied her from the railin'
She knew I was on my way, waited, and was true
She said "You son of an Englishman, I've dreamed each night of you"

She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt
She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt
She lives on just cokey-nuts and fish from the sea
A rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes
And love in her heart for me

I went to her Ma and Pa and said I loved her only
And they both said we could be wed, oh, what a ceremony
An elephant brought her in, placed her by my side
While six baboons got out bassoons and played "Here Comes the Bride"

I'm back here in London town and, though it may sound silly
She's here with me and you should see us walk down Picadilly
The boys at the London bank kinda hold their breath
She sits with me and sips her tea which tickles them to death

She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt
She wears red feathers and a hooly-hooly skirt
She lives on just cokey-nuts and fish from the sea
A rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes
And love (and love) in her heart (in her heart) for me

4th line in second verse should read as follows:

"Each night at the Music Hall, travelogues I'd see" !!!

(and IIRC the end of the next line should read "keep smiling down at me")

Well done otherwise - they don't write 'em like that any more.

A Guy Mitchell lifelong fan

I agree with Angela that they don't wreite 'em like that anymore. Fantastic - super voice - backed by a dynamite full orchestra. No wimpy MIDI or sythesizer here. Just great music !!

@ Angela
Your right with the 4th line but the "keep smiling down at me" is wrong.
it is "smiling right at me"

They used to play this thumping gleeful song in the singalong warm-up session to Saturday morning pictures at the Odeon cinema, Middlesbrough in the early 1950s. The lyrics were projected onto the proscenium fire-curtain.

This song was a 'road trip song' for my family for years, and was my Daddy's favorite. This was before all cars had radios. I'm talking the 1950's!!

Back in the '50s, this was one of my most favorite songs. I thought I was the only one who remembered it until last winter when a local radio station played it. I almost freaked out. My wife was amazed that I was singing the lyrics along with Guy Mitchel. Also, "Each night of music calls" I thought it was "Each night at the music hall" any comments?

"Each night at the music hall, travelogues I'd see, and once a pearl of a native girl was smiling right at me"
Great music from a great era and a tremendous singer.
