BALTIMORE ORIOLE (Hoagy Carmichael (m) / Paul Francis Webster (l) 1942) Hoagy Carmichael 1942 Also sung by: Carmen MacRae Frances Langford Gary Crosby Jackie Messina Shannon Forsell John Mellencamp Prudence Johnson Laura Collins George Harrison Bob Dorough Chris Conner Bob Dorough Judy Henske Liza Lee Lorez Alexandria Pat Thomas Chris Connor Jennifer Lee Diane Hubka Mia Nicholson Elizabeth Carpenter Sophia Berkal-Sarbit Shea Breaux Wells Barbara Lea And many others Baltimore Oriole Took a look at the mercury, forty below. No life for a lady To be draggin’ her feathers around in the snow. Leavin’ me blue, off she flew To the Tangipaho, down in Louisiana. Where the two timin’ Jaybird Met the divine Miss O. I’d like to ruffle his plumage That Baltimore Oriole. Messed around with that big guy ‘Til he singed her wings. Forgivin’ is easy it’s a woman like, now and then Could happen to, thing. Send her back home Home ain’t home without her warbling. How she can sing Make a lonely man happy, Baltimore Oriole. Come down from that bough Fly to your daddy now. (bridge) Send her back home, and alone Home ain’t home without her warbling. How she can sing Make a lonely man happy, Baltimore Oriole. Come down from the bough Fly to your daddy now.
