May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose
Recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens
Written by Neal Merritt

C                     G7               C
One fine day as I was walking down the street
Spied a beggar man with rags upon his feet
       C             C7
Took a penny from my pocket
       F             Fm
In his tin cup I did drop it
  C                G7          C
I heard him say as I made my retreat
                             G7      C
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
May an elephant caress you with his toes
              C               C7             F
May your wife be plagued with runners in her hose
             C           G7          C
May the bird of paradise fly up your nose
                   G7            C
The laundry man is really on his toes
Found a hundred dollar bill among my clothes
              C          C7
When he called me I came running
         F                 Fm
Gave him back his dime for phoning
  C                   G7          C
I heard him saying as I turned to go
repeat #2
                     G7               C
I was way behind one day to catch the train
The Taxi driver said We'll make it just the same
         C            C7
The speed cop made it with us
       F                Fm
And as he wrote out the ticket
        C           G7             C
I stood by politely waiting for my change
repeat #2
