Lullaby of Birdland

Lyrics:George Weiss
Music:George Shearing

The song was publishe 1952.

Birdland was a famous jazz club in New York City located
at 1678 Broadway at 44th Street.
It had previously been the Clique Club where pianist George Shearing,
composer of “Lullaby of Birdland,” first played in 1949
with clarinetist Buddy De Franco.
Later that year owner Morris Levy renamed the club Birdland
in honor of Charlie “Bird” Parker.

Somewhat later George David Weiss added lyrics to the tune,
and Sarah Vaughan recorded it in December, 1954,
for Mercury with trumpeter Clifford Brown.
It was one of her biggest hits and became a standard in her repertoire.
In 1956 a Parisian vocal group called the Blue Stars took the song
to the charts where it rose to #16.
In 1962 Bill Haley and His Comets recorded a version of the tune
which they called, “Lullaby of Birdland Twist.”




Lullaby of Birdland, that's what I,
Always hear, when you sigh,
Never in my wordland could there be words to reveal
In a phrase, how I feel.

Have you ever heard two turtle doves
Bill and coo when they love?
That's the kind of magic music we get from our lips
When we kiss

And there's a weepy old willow
He really knows how to cry
That's how I'd cry in my pillow
If you should tell me farewell and goodbye

Lullaby of birdland whisper low
Kiss me sweet, then we'll go
Flying high in birdland, high in the sky up above
All because we're in love

Have you ever heard two turtle doves
Bill and coo when they love?
That's the kind of magic music we get from our lips
When we kiss

And there's a weepy old willow
He really knows how to cry
That's how I'd cry in my pillow
If you should tell me farewell and goodbye

Lullaby of birdland, whisper low
Kiss me sweet, then we'll go
Flying high in birdland, high in the sky up above
And it's all because we're in love
