WEDDING OF THE BIRDS, THE ((M) Henry Tobias, Charles Kisco, (L) Harold Tobias) As recorded by: Frederic Hartley Novelty Quintette V. Maurice Elwin Recorded in 1931 Also recorded by: Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra Fred Rich & His Orchestra, V. Smith Bellew Oh what a dream, it’s mating season You’ve never seen a scene so pleasin’ When you see the wedding of the birds Little blue jay and mister swallow Showing the way for all to follow Just to see the wedding of the birds Little miss whip-poor-will Will give everyone a thrill When she says, “Yes I will” To old parson crow After the ceremony’s over All of the birds will feed in clover What a time at the wedding of the birds. Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet Hear the birdies sing Something’s gonna happen very soon All of the birds are in ecstasy Can’t you hear them croon A happy wedding tune Hear the echo in the trees Bring your invitations please They don’t have to hire a hall There is lots of room for all Every big hawk will be kept outside Just to be sure no one steals the bride Better be there at the grand affair Tomorrow morning (Musical break) After the ceremony’s over All of the birds will feed in clover What a time at the wedding of the birds. (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley - August 2013)
