Sometimes I get impatient
Be she cools me without words
And she comes so softly
My hummingbird
And have you heard
I thought my life had ended
But I found that it’s just begun
Cause she gets me where where I live
I’d give her everything I’ve got to give
All for that hummingbird

Oh she’s little and she loves me
Too much for words to say
I see her in the morning sleeping
Yeah she’s little and she loves me
It’s my lucky day
Hummingbird don’t fly away

When I’m feelin’ wild and lonesome
She knows just what to say
She gives me so much understanding
In her little way
Lord I gotta say
In my life I’m gonna love no other
She’s more than I deserve
She gets me where where I live
I’d give her everything that’s mine to give
All for that hummingbird

Oh she’s little and she loves me
Too much for words to say
I see her in the morning sleeping
Yeah she’s little and she loves me
It’s my lucky day
Hummingbird don’t fly away
