8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
A song bird yearns to sing a love song,
The roses yearn just for the dew,
The whole world's yearning for the sunshine,
I have a yearning too.

Yearning just for you,
That's all I do my dear.
Learning why I'm blue,
I wish that you were near.
Smiles have turned to tears,
Days have turned to years.
Yearning just for you,
I hope you're yearning too.
