Here’s a nice song from The Mamas and the Papas. I like most all their songs, but hadn’t heard this one until recently. I didn’t know it was a cover for a long ago song, either until I read about it.

From a Wiki article:

Sing for Your Supper” is an American popular song by composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Lorenz Hart. The song debuted in their 1938 Broadway musical The Boys from Syracuse

***

“Sing For Your Supper”, by The Mamas and the Papas, can be found on their 1967 studio album, “Deliver”. It was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, and is on the Dunhill label.

Sing for your supper
And you’ll get breakfast
Songbirds always eat
If their song is sweet to hear
Sing for your luncheon
And you’ll get dinner
Dine with wine of choice
If romance is in your voice
I heard from a wise canary
Trilling makes a fellow willing
So, little swallow, swallow now
Now is the time to
Sing for your supper
And you’ll get breakfast
Songbirds are not dumb
They don’t buy a crumb of bread
It’s said, so sing and you’ll be fed
I heard from a wise canary
Trilling makes a fellow willing
So, little swallow, swallow now
Now is the time to sing for your supper
And you’ll get breakfast
Songbirds are not dumb
They never buy a crumb of bread
It is said, so sing and you’ll be fed, oh yeah
Just sing and you’ll be fed

    • Thanks so much, Ai! It sure is a good song. Love most all their songs, and this one was one I wasn’t really familiar with until fairly recently. Glad you like it, too. 🙂
