Lyrics verse 1:
BLACKBIRD, BLACKBIRD,
SINGING THE BLUES
ALL DAY
RIGHT OUTSIDE
MY DOOR.
BLACKBIRD, BLACKBIRD,
WHY DO YOU SIT
AND SAY,
THERE'S NO SUNSHINE
IN STORE?
ALL THROUGH THE WINTER
YOU HUNG AROUND,
NOW I BEGIN TO FEEL
HOMEWARD BOUND.
BLACKBIRD, BLACKBIRD,
GOTTA BE ON MY WAY,
WHERE THERE'S SUNSHINE
GALORE.

Chorus:
PACK UP
ALL MY CARE
AND WOE,
HERE I GO
SINGING LOW,
BYE BYE BLACKBIRD.
WHERE SOMEBODY
WAITS FOR ME
SUGAR'S SWEET,
SO IS SHE,
BYE BYE BLACKBIRD.
NO ONE HERE
CAN LOVE
OR UNDERSTAND ME,
OH WHAT HARD LUCK
STORIES THEY ALL
HAND ME.
MAKE MY BED
AND LIGHT THE LIGHT,
I'LL ARRIVE
LATE TONIGHT,
BLACKBIRD,
BYE BYE.

verse 2:
BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD,
CALLING ME FAR AWAY.
I'VE BEEN LONGING
FOR YOU.
BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD,
WHAT
DO I HEAR YOU
SAY,
SKIES
ARE TURNING BLUE?
I'M LIKE A FLOWER
THAT'S FADING HERE
WHERE EV'RY HOUR
IS ONE LONG TEAR.
BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD,
THIS IS MY LUCKY DAY,
NOW MY DREAMS
WILL COME TRUE.

Chorus:
PACK UP
ALL MY CARE
AND WOE,
HERE I GO
SINGING LOW,
BYE BYE BLACKBIRD.
WHERE SOMEBODY
WAITS FOR ME
SUGAR'S SWEET,
SO IS SHE,
BYE BYE BLACKBIRD.
NO ONE HERE
CAN LOVE
OR UNDERSTAND ME,
OH WHAT HARD LUCK STORIES
THEY ALL HAND ME.
MAKE MY BED
AND LIGHT THE LIGHT,
I'LL ARRIVE
LATE TONIGHT,
BLACKBIRD,
BYE BYE.
