THE HUMMINGBIRD MAN song lyrics 
by Joel Sattler 


 

it's the hummingbird man 
the hummingbird man 

driving cross the country 
in a little stealth van 

with the hold full of grapefruit 
and his face full of smiles 
the hummingbird man 
flies for miles and miles 

once he was a laborer 
laying tiles and floors 
once he was a busker 
putting end to wars 
once he was a carpenter 
building Amish barns 
once he was a dairyman 
going farm to farm 

but now he is a hummingbird 
floating place to place 
dropped out of the marathon 
of the human race 

took the spirit of the bird 
as his saving grace 
sipped the nectar of the gods 
but just a taste 

it's the hummingbird man 
the hummingbird man 
driving cross the country 
in a little stealth van 

with the hold full of grapefruit 
and his face full of smiles 
the hummingbird man 
flies for miles and miles
