SING FOR YOUR SUPPER (Richard Rogers & Lorenz Hart) Recorded by: Count Basie, Cher, Benny Goodman, Debbie Gravitte, Ellen Hanley, Helen Humes, Lynn Kennington, Carol Kidd, Lois Lane, Mamas & Papas, Marty Paich Dek-tette, Dave Pell, Phyllis Robins, Rogers & Hart, Martial Solal, Mel Tormé, Dawn Upshaw, Rudy Vallee, Cy Walter, Lawrence Welk. Paul Whiteman Orchestra. VERSE Hawks and crows do lots of things, but the canary only sings. She is a courtesan on wings- So I've heard. Eagles and storks are twice as strong. All the canary knows is song. But the canary gets along- Guilded bird! REFRAIN Sing for your supper, And you'll get breakfast. Songbirds always eat If their song is sweet to hear. Sing for your luncheon, And you'll get dinner. Dine with wine of choice, If romance is in your voice. I heard from a wise canary Trilling makes a fellow willing, So, little swallow, swallow now. Now is the time to Sing for your supper, And you'll get breakfast. Songbirds are not dumb, They don't buy a crumb Of bread, It's said. So sing and you'll be fed.
