People familiar with the Dixie Cups' or the Shirelles' versions may not recognize this right away . . .

This was written and first recorded by the Carter Family in the 1930s . . .

@Setanta,
Was this version on the first Trio CD? I know I have it, but was it in the first or second collaboration?

I'm still having trouble transferring videos to A2K, but if you get a chance look up "The Rivingtons - The Bird's The Word - 1963 45rpm". this is the group that actually recorded "Bird is the word" before The Trashmen claimed they wrote it. It's important to remember that black artists didn't get a lot of play on the 'white' AM stations so many white artists stole the material and recorded it as their own. I think the 'Rivingtons' recorded the best version.

Just a little factoid that I happened upon in my idle hours.

@glitterbag,
Would that be the same as Surfin Bird?

@glitterbag,
This is what you type:

Code:[youtube]URLofthevideo[/youtube]


Of course, you copy the URL from the page where you found the video. It only works for youtube. However, I don't see what "The Bird is the Word" has to do with matrimony, or the failure thereof.

I keep thinking the Healy-Rae's, sorry Gilbert.

It doesn't have anything to do with matrimony, it's just the original version of the song and I thought of it when you mentioned the Carter family's 1930's version.
Just a mind blip.

Kiss and Say Goodbye
The Manhattans

This has got to be the saddest day of my life
I called you here today for a bit of bad news
I won't be able to see you any more
Because of my obligations
And the ties that you have
We've been meeting here every day
And since this is our last date together
I want to hold you just one more time
When you turn and walk away
Don't look back I want to remember you just like this
Let's just kiss
And say goodbye

I had to meet you here today
There's just so many things to say
Please don't stop me till I'm through
This is something I hate to do
We've been meeting here so long
I guess what we done was wrong
Please, darling, don't you cry
Let's just…

Songwriters: Winfred Lovett
