“Today my bird flew away
gone to find her big blue jay
starlight before she took flight
I sung a lullaby of bird land every night
sung for my Ava every night

Ava was the morning, now she’s gone
she’s reborn like Sarah Vaughan
in the sanctuary she has found
birds surround her sweet sound
and Ava flies in paradise

With dread I woke in my bed
to shooting pains up in my head
lovebird, my beautiful bird
spoken ‘til one day she couldn’t be heard
she just stopped singing

Ava was the morning, now she’s gone
she’s reborn like Sarah Vaughan
in the sanctuary she has found
birds surround her sweet sound
and Ava flies in paradise”.

Citazioni.

“This was written in memory of Amy Winehouse‘s pet canary, whom she named after movie star Ava Gardner. Amy recalled to Mojo magazine January 2008 how the bird would wake her in the mornings, “twittering away and rocking on her little swing.” When it died the singer was heartbroken. She buried her beloved bird in some woods in East Finchley near London, singing “Lullaby Of Birdland” as she laid Ava to rest. She added in the same Mojo interview: “I loved that bird. It was a sad time. But I got a good song out of it”.
The album Frank was named in reference to the singer Frank Sinatra, who was married to Ava Gardner between 1951 and 1957″.
