Bird Dog

Album: The Everly Brothers' Best (1958)
Charted: 2 2
  • Johnny is a joker (he's a bird)
    A very funny joker (he's a bird)
    But when he jokes my honey (he's a dog)
    His jokin' ain't so funny (what a dog)
    Johnny is a joker that's a'tryin' to steal my baby (he's a bird dog)

    Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
    Sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)
    But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
    To me he's just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
    Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he's a bird dog)

    Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
    Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
    Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
    Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
    Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
    Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own

    Johnny kissed the teacher (he's a bird)
    He tiptoed up to reach her (he's a bird)
    Well he's the teacher's pet now (he's a dog)
    What he wants he's been gettin' now (what a dog)
    He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he's a bird dog)

    Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
    Hey, bird dog you're on the wrong trail
    Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
    Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
    Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
    Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own

    He's a bird
