Sing to Me Mr. C. ~ original album circa 1961

Back In Your Own Backyard ~ unreleased session recording

< Instrumental opening >
 
The bird with feathers of blue,
Is waitin’ for you…
Back in your own backyard.
 
You’ll see your castle in Spain,
Through your windowpane…
Back in your own backyard.
 
Oh, you can go to the east, go to the west,
Someday you’ll come,
Weary at heart, back where you started from!
 
You’ll find your happiness lies,
Right under your eyes…
Back in your own backyard!
 
Oh, you can go to the east, go to the west,
Someday you’ll come,
A-weary at heart, back where you started from!
 
You’ll find your happiness lies,
Right under your eyes…
Back in your own backyard…
