She Wears Red Feathers

Bob Merrill

4:4 Key:C

(chorus)
[C]She wears red feathers and a huly-huly [G]skirt,
She wears red feathers and a huly-huly [C]skirt,
She [F]lives on just [C]cokey-nuts and fish from the sea,
A [Am]rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes, and [G]love in her heart for [C]me


[C]I worked in a London bank, respectable po[G]sition,
From nine to three they [C]serve you tea, but [D]ruin your dispo[G]sition,
Each [F]night at the music hall, [C]travelogues Id [Am]see,
And [C]once a pearl of a native girl came [G]smilin' right at [C]me

(chorus)

[C]Goodbye to the London bank, I started in a-[G]sailin',
The fourteenth day from [C]Mandalay I [D]spied her from the [G]railin',
She [F]knew I was on my way, [C]waited, and was [Am]true,
She [C]said, "You son of an Englishman, I've [G]dreamed each night of [C]you"

(chorus)

[C]I went to her Ma and Pa and said I loved her [G]only,
And they both said [C]we could be wed, oh, [D]what a cere[G]mony.
An [F]elephant brought her in, [C]placed her by my [Am]side,
While [C]six baboons got out bassoons and [G]played "Here Comes the [C]Bride"

(chorus)

[C]I'm back here in London town and, though it may sound [G]silly,
She's here with me and [C]you should see us [D]walk down Picca[G]dilly,
The [F]boys at the London bank [C]kinda hold their [Am]breath,
She [C]sits with me and sips her tea which [G]tickles them to [C]death

[C]She wears red feathers and a huly-huly [G]skirt,
She wears red feathers and a huly-huly [C]skirt,
She [F]lives on just [C]cokey-nuts and fish from the sea,
A [Am]rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes, and [G]love in her heart for [C]me
A [Am]rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes, and [G]love in her heart for [C]me
A [Am]rose in her hair, a gleam in her eyes, and [G]love in her heart for [C]me
