Say, when you see me flyin' to town, I'm just lookin' to see if any flowers is anywhere around

Say, my back is gray and my breast is yellow, and also my wings
Say, my back is gray and my breast is yellow, and also my wings
Say, when you see me 'round your flowers early in the mornin', I got somethin' to give you no other bird ever brings

I belong to the fowl family, all the roosters and me is friends

Says, I can sample three or four flowers while he's samplin' just one hen

I'm crazy about my honeysuckers (sic), my morning glories, too
(Slim, spoken: Preach it, boy!)
Yond's a bed of violens (sic) and they down low, yonder stand a bed of roses and they up much higher
But that sweet bunch of lilies, say, they give me a lot of power
Now, say, I'm just gonna keep on hummin' and flyin', hee, well, well, tryin' to find a sunflower
