Hi Skybubba!

The title of the song you are referring to is THERE'S A BLUEBIRD ON
Words and music by Elizabeth Clarke

See the lyrics at the following links:

The Canadian Encyclopedia provides the history of the song 'Bluebird
on Your Windowsill'.

?Pop song by the Vancouver nurse (Carmen) Elizabeth Clarke (b Winnipeg
1911, d Vancouver 1960). The words (1947) were inspired by a small
bird which perched on a windowsill of Vancouver's Hospital for Sick
and Crippled Children. The melody was added later. The Rhythm Pals,
who introduced the song on radio station CKNW, New Westminster, made
an unsubstantiated claim that they contributed something to the final
version. The song was published in 1948 by Empire Music and recorded
first by Don Murphy for Aragon. Many other country artists recorded
the song, and versions in 1949 by Doris Day and Tex Williams were hits
in the US pop and country markets respectively. Clarke turned over all
royalties to children's hospitals in Canada. The song was chosen as
the theme for the 1949 US March of Dimes, and was later used in the
1986 Canadian feature film My American Cousin.?
