She Wears Red Feathers - Guy Mitchell

She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom the sea
A rose in her hair a gleam in her eyes
and love in her heart for me

I worked in a London bank
Respectable position
From nine to three they serve you tea
But doom your disposition
Each night at the music hall
Travelogues I'd see
and once a pearl of a native girl
Kept smiling right at me

She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom the sea
A rose in her hair a gleam in her eyes
and love in her heart for me

Goodbye to the London bank
I started in the sailin'
The fourteenth day from Mandalay
I spied her from the railin'
She knew I was on my way
Waited and was true
She said you son of an Englishman
I've dreamed each night of you

She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom the sea
A rose in her hair a gleam in her eyes
and love in her heart for me

I went to her ma and pa
and said I loved her only
and they both said we could be wed
Oh what a ceremony
An elephant brought her in
Placed her by my side
While six baboons got out bassoons
and played here comes the bride

I'm back here in London town
and though it may sound silly
She's here with me and you should see
Us walk down Picadilly
The boys at the London bank
Kinda hold their breath
She sits with me and sips her tea
Which tickles them to death

She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She wears red feathers and a huly huly skirt
She lives on just cocynuts and fish furrom the sea
A rose in her hair a gleam in her eyes
and love in her heart for me
