Back in Your Own Backyard
Ella Fitzgerald

Back in Your Own Backyard

We leave home expecting to find a blue bird
Hoping ev'ry cloud will be silver lined
But we all return as we live wo learn
That we left our happiness behind

When they sing you "look for the silver lining,"
It is silver dollars they're looking for
You will find my friend that the rainbow's end
Is somewhere around your kitchen door

The bird with feathers of blue, is waiting for you
Back in your own back yard
You'll see your castle in spain, through your window pane
Back in your own back yard
Oh you can go to the east go to the west
But someday you'll come weary at heart back where you started from
You'll find your happiness lies, right under your eyes
Back in your own backyard
