or
Manfred Mann

If the song of the songbird
Could replace my wrong word
Then my dear, that's the song I would borrow

[Chorus:]
And tonight you would hear
The saddest song of the year
And you'd be mine once again come tomorrow

If the song of the swallow
Could reveal my sorrow
Then my dear, he would sing just for you

[Chorus]

Just tonight, while in flight
On your windowsill daylight
To tell you all of my tears

[Chorus]

If the song of the swallow
Could reveal my sorrow
Then my dear, he would sing just for you

[Chorus x2]

Sing, sing, sing, sing, sing, Mr. Songbird
Come on and sing just one, little swallow
And make her mine once again come tomorrow
