The Boy with the Yellow Bird

The forest is green
The boy is aflame
He follows the yellow bird

The bird is a yellow flame
The boy flies behind it
The forest is aflame

The boy is green
His heart aflame for the bird
But the bird is yellow as gold

-- No man can match it
The rivers flow fast
The liquor runs smooth

Boys grow up fast
The lost bird forever
         a flame in their hearts.
