This song debuted in the 1938 musical "the Boys of Syracuse". This song has been interpreted by numerous performers, including Cher.
LYRICS:
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.

After vigorous dancing at his retirement party, my friend Austin decided to sing for his supper.
Happy retirement to you!
