Pack up all my cares 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.

    General CommentI just watched King Kong (only it was Martha Wainwright who sang this, I think) , this song was in there. So sad... :(

    General CommentI believe it's a song about death, but I could be wrong (as usual).
