C                 D7
Mister Press Man, here's some news
G7               C
You can print it if you choose
D7                G7                   C     G7
Just to show that times have changed a lot
C                    D7
Though it may sound strange to you
G7        C
It is absolutely true
D7                       G7      G+
You can believe it.......or not

C             G+      C              G+
Since making whoopee became all the rage
     C    G+           A7
It's even got into the old birdcage
Dm            G7                C     C#  D#  C7
My canary has circles under his eyes

C           G+           C         G+
He used to whistle 'The Prisoner's Song'
C            G+             A7
Now he does snake-hips the whole day long
Dm             G7               C
My canary has circles under his eyes

    E7    B7          E7
His only pals are the Meadow Lark
A
And just a tiny sparrow
    D      A7             D
But I am afraid when he's in the park
    G                      G7   G+
He leaves the straight and narrow

 C          G+      C           G+  
Instead of taking a much needed rest
      C     G+           A7
He`s flying out to some sparrow`s nest
    Dm             G7               C     C#  D#  G7
And my canary has circles under his eyes

C          G+              C           G+
He has no girlfriend  that I`m certain of
C             G+            A7
But he thinks What is this thing called love
Dm             G7               C     C#  D#  G7
My canary has circles under his eyes

C           G+         C          G+
Birds of a feather the old storie goes
    C        G+         A7
But love is something nobody knows
    Dm             G7               C
And My canary has circles under his eyes

E7          B7            E7
There was a time he was satisfied
    A
To flit among the flowers
    D          A7      D
But now when I let him out he`ll hide
G                 G7
Up in a tree for hours

C             G+            C       G+
He won`t eat birdseed it`s really a sin
   C            G+                A7
He won`t sing a thing without his cup of gin
Dm             G7               C    C#  D#  G7
My canary has circles under his eyes

C             G+        C          G+
I raised this bird in a manner so strict
C           G+          A7
Now I feel certain I'm being tricked
Dm             G7                C    B  Bb  A7
My canary has circles under his eyes
Dm             G7                C    B  C
My canary has circles under his eyes
