Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

Chee Chee-Oo Chee
( Sang the Little Bird )
 
( Cheep-cheep, cheep-cheep! . . . )
 
Oh, once on a tree-top tall a little bird
sang out the sweetest song I ever heard!
Chee Chee-Oo Chee it sang to me so merrily
Chee Chee-Oo Chee the little birdie on a tree
 
Life's such a lovely thing, it seemed to say
if you will only sing your cares away! 
Chee Chee-Oo Chee so merrily you went along
Chee Chee-Oo Chee so happily his little song!
 
And so . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee . . . 
I sing . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee
Chee Chee-Oo Chee this happy, happy little thing!
If you . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee . . . 
feel blue . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee
Sing Chee-Oo Chee and you can be as happy too!
 
Life's such a lovely thing, it seemed to say
Chee Chee-Oo Chee, Oo Chee Oo Chee!
if you will only sing your cares away! 
Chee Chee-Oo Chee, Oo Chee Oo Chee!

And so . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee . . . 
I sing . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee
Chee Chee-Oo Chee this happy, happy little thing!
If you . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee . . . 
feel blue . . . Chee Chee-Oo Chee
Sing Chee-Oo Chee and you can be as happy too!
 
Sing Chee-Oo Chee and you can be as happy too!
Sing Chee-Oo Chee and you can be as happy too!
