SHE WEARS RED FEATHERS Guy Mitchell (She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt) (She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt) She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom the sea A rose in her hair a gleam in her eyes And love in her heart for me I worked in a London bank Respectable position From nine to three they serve you tea But doom your disposition Each night at the music hall Travelogues I'd see And once a pearl of a native girl Kept smiling right at me She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom 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 the 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 huly huly skirt She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom 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 huly huly skirt She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom the sea A rose in her hair a gleam in her eyes And love in her heart for me (Contributed by boB Cartlidge - December 2002)
