SHADY LADY BIRD From the Broadway Show "Best Foot Forward" (1941) (Ralph Blane / Hugh Martin) Helen Schlessinger & Chorus (Broadway Production) - 1941 Benny Goodman & His Orch. (vocal: Peggy Lee) - 1941 Helen Forrest with Harry James & His Orch. (Film Soundtrack) - 1943 Karin Wolfe & Chorus (Off-Broadway Prod.) - 1963 Joyce Breach & William Roy - 2001 I'm gonna be a shady lady bird I got an awful lot to learn But if you tell me that my heart's on fire I'm gonna let it burn I'm gonna be a shockin' mockin' bird I'm gonna mingle with the best I'm gonna try to find my heart's desire I'm gonna rob the nest Just like little miss muffett Eating her whey and curds When I act a bit tough I frighten away the birds I'm gonna be a slummin' hummin' bird I'm gonna pass along the word I'm gonna have my fun and never tire And if my technique seems absurd That's because I've never been A shady lady bird. (Musical Break) I'm gonna be a shady lady bird I hope the payment is deferred For if I fly back safely to my perch And find the worst has not occurred That's because I've never been A shady lady bird. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - August 2006)
