PACK UP ALL MY CARES AND WOES, HERE I GO -- I'M GOING SINGIN' LOW -- I'M GONNA SING BYE-BYE, BYE- BYE, BLACKBIRD.
I WANNA GO WHERE SOMEBODY WAITS FOR ME - SUGAR'S SWEET, LORDY LORDY, SO IS HE ----- BYE- BYE BLACKBIRD

NO ONE HERE IN THIS CRAZY WORLD SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND ME.
OH, OH, OH, WHAT HARD- LUCK STORIES EVERYBODY'S HANDIN' ME.

SO MAKE MY BED, LIGHT YOUR LIGHT - I TRUST MYSELF TO MAKE IT HOME TONIGHT.
BLACKBIRD, OH BLUESY BLUESY BLACKBIRD ---I GOTTO SAY BYE-BYE.... I GOTTO SAY BYE-BYE.....
I'M GONNA SAY BYE-BYE TO THE BLACK BLACK BLACK FEELING IN MY HEART,
AND OPEN MY LOVE TO THE LIGHT ABOVE -- BLACK BIRD BYE-BYE

2nd x:] PACK UP ALL MY CARES AND WOES,
I'M GOIN' SINGIN' LOW - SINGIN' SWEET, SWEET AND LOW.... BYE--- BYE--- BLACKBIRD.

I'M GOIN' WHERE SOMEBODY WAITS FOR ME - SUGAR'S SWEET, SO IS HE --
BYE-BYE, BLACKBIRD

NOBODY, NOBODY IN THIS CRAZY WORLD UNDERSTANDS ME,
OH, I'M TIRED OF ALL THE HARD-LUCK STORIES THEY HAND ME -- AND I'M TIRED OF THE ONES I'M HANDING BACK - DO YOU HEAR ME NOW?
