or
Johnny Mercer

I'm out in the country
But I don't know why
Cause I'm sticky a city loving guy
Just sitting there when a little bird flies my way
Hello bee

I looks at him and he's lookin' at me
We're both satisfying our curiosity
Who can this be?
Quick like a rabbit I gets me a ?
So I ups to him and I say,
Whatcha say?
"Oh Mister Meadowlark we gots a lot of serenading to do."
Who to?
"Ooh Mister Meadowlark I'm just a city slicker & I'm counting on you."

She's got a country guy who whistles
My whistle is thin
(innocent)
So when I begin, that's where you come in

Oh you're ? your heart mister meadowlark
Now if you should cop a gander when I'm kissing my chick
Needless to remind I'm gonna have the decency to exit due but quick
Say but what if Mrs. M thinks I'm out stepping?
Fear not, I'll make it alright
For Mr. Meadowlark meet me in the dark tonight
The scene changes, nightfall, our two characters at the ? place, the park,
Spoon and spark with meadowlark

Ooh Mister Meadowlark we're gathered here to witness this moment event
It's a charming little park
Paid for by the city
Now my brother you're a cinch
Cause when I send them, they're sent
You mean you're ready?
Suppose I hit a real good ripple
Well whistle me a whizzer
I'll slip you a ?
Now when I begin
Why that's where I come in
Pretty now
Oh Mister Meadowlark, I guess you know that clinker put the finish oh me
Fair weather friend, eh?
Needn't to remind I hope you know you put me in a practically impossible key
If they squawk then you got to square it
Square it
I'll tell them you're tight with two black birds from Boston
Yes Mister Meadowlark goodnight
Goodnight
