[Verse 1]
F              Am
Why, sparrow, why?
           G               C
Won't you tell me why I'm sad?
 Dm              E         Am              D
Sing us both a melody, the best that you can
 F            Am
Fly, sparrow, fly
           G           C
Won't you sit on my hand?
 Dm               E        Am                D
Sing it in that language we both can understand

[Chorus]
  F
When you sit on that tree
 D
Look in my eyes
  F                D
I wonder what goes on in your mind

(instrumental: repeat chords from verse)

[Verse 2]
 F                Am
Speak, sparrow, speak
  G                C
Please, won't you try?
 Dm                 E          Am                 D
Tell me why you'd walk if you knew that you could fly
  F               Am
Speak, sparrow, speak
    G                  C
Oh, please, won't you try?
  Dm              E               Am          D
Tell me all the answers to this meaningless life

[Chorus]
 F
But you're up on that tree
  D
And you look in my eyes
  F                D
I wonder what goes on in your mind

[Verse 3]
 F               Am
Stay, sparrow, stay
            G          C
Won't you stay in my window?
      Dm            E           Am           D
I've never been so close to anything so beautiful
  F             Am
Wait, sparrow, wait
       G            C
Oh, please don't you go
    Dm                E           Am              D
I love the way our feathers move as the wind it blows

[Chorus]
 F
But you're up on that tree
  D
And you look in my eyes
 F              D
I wonder what goes on in your mind

[Verse 4]
  F              Am
Sing, sparrow, sing
  G             C
Sing away the pain
  Dm                  E           Am               D
When you get to the bones of it, we are just the same
          F              Am
I said: sing, sparrow, sing
  G            C
Sing away our pain
       Dm           E        Am       D
I'll never hear a melody as sweet as today

[Outro]
  F
Cause you're up in that tree
  D
And you look in my eyes
  F                          D
And I wonder how, but you're saying goodbye
