"Bye Bye Blackbird" as written by and Mort Dixon Ray Henderson....
Pack up all my cares and woes
Feeling low here I go
Bye, bye blackbird

Where somebody waits for me
Sugar sweet so is she
Bye, bye Blackbird

No one seems to love or understand me
And all the hard luck stories they keep handing me
Where somebody shines the light
I'll be coming on home tonight
Bye, bye Blackbird

Nobody seems to love or understand me
And all the hard luck stories they keep on handing me
Where somebody shines the light
I'm coming on home tonight
Bye, bye Blackbird

    Song MeaningApparently this song is thought to be about a prostitute packing up and returning to mum. I was surprised to learn that there are actually more lyrics that are rarely sung



    Blackbird, blackbird singing the blues all day
    Right outside of my door
    Blackbird, blackbird who do you sit and say
    There's no sunshine in store

    All thru the winter you hung around
    Now I begin to feel homeward bound
    Blackbird, blackbird gotta be on my way
    Where there's sunshine galore

    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 and 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

    Bluebird bluebird calling me far away
    I've been longing for you
    Bluebird bluebird what do I hear you say
    Skies are turning to 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

    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 and 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
