YOU FLEW AWAY FROM THE NEST (Bert Kalmar / Harry Ruby) Al Jolson Yesterday I watched two love birds in a tree Just bill and coo, like love birds do I began to envy them when suddenly One flew away, far away just like you Like a birdie, you flew away from the nest Never said goodbye to me, went and left me up a tree Don't know if you flew to the east or the west Just know that since you have flown I'm all alone, so depressed Some strange bird came along There is no doubt And sang a different song While I was out Evidently you liked the new song the best Like a birdie you flew away from the nest. (Spoken) I often wondered who took you away If it was a blackbird or a jay If a cuckoo bird took you from me Huh! You gone cuckoo, I can see Couldn't be an eagle, `cause that bird Wouldn't fly so low I wouldn't be surprised To know that you fell for some old crow (Musical Break) (Sung) Like a birdie, you flew away from the nest Never said goodbye to me, went and left me up a tree Don't know if you flew to the east or the west Just know that since you have flown I'm all alone, so depressed Some strange bird came along There is no doubt, no doubt And sang a different song While I was out Evidently you liked the new song the best Like a birdie you flew away from the nest.
