Ode to a Lone Bird

from The Cimarron Banks by Amy Annelle

/

lyrics

the bird, oh he go lightly
but sometimes, a bird get lonely
oh, the birdie, does the birdie
birdie need some company?

I know you got a big cock
'cause your girlfriend's got a big mouth
and I hear you'll be headed down south
by way of the High Desert Flyway.

and I'll fly with you for a while, old friend
and know that this is no end,
but a lifetime of, "hello again, again"

hello again, hello again, my friend
low again, low again, old friend

I know you could do better
if you and I were together
but I ain't no homewrecker
no, I ain't gonna wreck no home
when I'm tryin' to build my own

yes, everybody needs a home, a home
and someday, I'll have you in mine,
"maybe tomorrow, honey, someplace down the line."

so fly with me for a while, old friend
and know that this is no end,
but a lifetime of, "hello again, again"

hello again, hello again my friend
low again, low again, old friend
dear friend.

the bird, oh he go lightly
but sometimes, a bird get lonely
oh the birdie, does the birdie
birdie need some company?
