5000 light years from Birdland

But I'm still preachin' the rythym

 

Long gone uptight years from Birdland

And I'm still teachin' it with 'em

 

Years from the land of the Bird

And I am still feelin' the spirit

 

5000 light years from Birdland

But I know people can hear it

 

Bird named it, Bird made it

Bird heard it, then played it

Well stated Birdland

It happened down in Birdland

In the middle of that hub

 

I remember one jazz club

Where we went to pat feet

 

Down on 52nd Street

 

Everybody heard that word

That they named it after Bird

 

Where the rythym swooped and swirled

The jazz corner of the world

 

And the cats they gigged in there

Were beyond compare

 

Birdland, I'm singing Birdland

 

Birdland, old swingin' Birdland

 

Hey man, the music really turns you on

Really? Ya turn me around and turn me on

Down them stairs, lose them cares

Where? Down in Birdland

Total swing, Bop was king there

Down in Birdland

Bird would cook, Max would look

 

Where? Down in Birdland

Miles came through, trane came too there

Down in Birdland

Basie blew, Blakie too

Where? Down in Birdland

Cannonball played that hall there

Down in Birdland, yeah

 

There will never be nothin' such as that

No more, skoo be wah, no more

 

Down in Birdland, that's where it was at

I know, ah ah ah ah ah, I know

Back in them days Bop was ridin' high

 

Hello, heh heh heh heh heh, goodbye!

 

How well those cats remember their first Birdland gig

To play in Birdland is an honor we still dig

Yeah, that club was like in another world

Sure enough, yeah baby

 

All those cats were cookin' on

People just sat and they were steady lookin' on

Then Bird, he came and spread the word

Birdland

 

Yes indeed he did

Yes indeed he did

Yes indeed he did

Yes he did Parker played in Birdland

Yes he really did

Yes indeed he really did told the truth way down in Birdland

Yes indeed he did, Yard bird Parker played in Birdland

 

Yes indeed he really did, Charlie Parker played in Birdland

 

Bird named it, Bird made it

Bird heard it, then played it

Well stated Birdland

It happened down in Birdland

 

Everybody dug that beat

Everybody stomped their feet

Everybody digs be bop

And they'll never stop

Down them stairs, lose them cares

Yeah, down in Birdland

Total swing, Bop was king
