Title Buzzard Song
Artist Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

BPM 125
Key F
Mode Minor

Boss, dat bird mean trouble
Once de buzzard fold his wing an' light over yo' house,
All yo' happiness done dead
Buzzard keep on flyin' over, take along yo' shadow

Ain' nobody dead dis mornin'
Livin's jus' begun
Two is strong where one is feeble
Man an' woman livin', workin',

Sharin' grief an' sharin' laughter,
An' love like Augus' sun
Trouble, is dat you over yonder
Lookin' lean an' hungry?

Don' you let dat buzzard keep you
Hangin' round my do'
Ain' you heard de news this mornin'?
Step out, brudder, hit de gravel

Porgy who you used to feed on,
Don' live here no mo'
Ha, ha, ha, ha! Buzzard, on yo' way!
Ole age, what is you anyhow,

Nuttin' but bein' lonely
Pack yo' things an' fly from here,
Carry grief an' pain
Dere's two folks livin' in dis shelter

Eatin', sleepin', singin', prayin'
Ain' no such thing as loneliness
An' Porgy's young again

Buzzard, keep on flyin',
Porgy's young again
