INTRO




Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop
Though he loves his mate
Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late

Don't look at me, sweetheart, with scorn in your eyes
Been out all night, gonna tell you no lies
Stopped in one place, heard them singin' a song

Like a lonely sparrow, started singin' along

Just singin' (GUY AND BACKUP SINGERS TOGETHER)

(Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop)
(Though he loves his mate)
(Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop)
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late

In walked a blonde and, dear, she asked me to dance
I told that blonde that there wasn't a chance
I love my kids and my beautiful wife

That's the honest truth, dear, and I swear by my life

-GUY AND FEMALE SINGERS SING (Sparrow in the treetop,
sparrow in the treetop Though he loves his mate, Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow
in the treetop, Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late)
while MALE SINGERS sing tavern singin' songs>

There's things I am sweetheart, and things that I ain't
'cause I'm a man and a man is no saint
Won't you forgive 'cause I'm tellin' you true
<'cause I'm tellin' you true>
I was in the tavern only thinkin' of you

Just singin' (GUY AND BACKUP SINGERS TOGETHER)

(Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop)
(Though he loves his mate)
(Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow in the treetop)
Scared of goin' home because it's too darn late

(Just singin')-GUY AND FEMALE SINGERS SING (Sparrow in the treetop,
sparrow in the treetop Though he loves his mate, Sparrow in the treetop, sparrow
in the treetop, Scared of goin' home because it's TOO DARN LATE!!)
while MALE SINGERS sing tavern singin' songs>
