I'm A Bird

Music, Lyrics & Vocals by Carmel Madonna

They blink their eyes in the sun
Go back to sleep your slumber isn't done
You sleep all day, stay up all night
The nocturnal creatures who hoot 'til light
Whooty hoot hoot hoot. Whooty hoot hoot hoot
Do the owl salute. Whooty hoot hoot hoot

Chorus

Now spread your wings and fly like a bird
And land on one foot and shout these words,
I'm a bird. I'm a bird. I'm a bird, have you heard?

They fly straight up and go backwards
Do all kinds of stunts they to the tiniest bird
They hover motionless and sip nectar juice
A whirlin' and a twirlin' goes the hummingbird
Hummmmmmmmmmm ummmmmmmmm

Chorus

Extreme in size she's a flightless bird
She runs thirty-five miles an hour I heard
She lays the largest and the most colorful eggs
Those ostriches and their outrageous legs
Strut your stuff, strut your stuff, that's not enough
You gotta strut your stuff

Chorus

There are long-legged waders with stilt-like legs
They stand in shallow water and go in for their prey
They have a long neck and a big bent bill
The flamingos on one foot as he waits for his meal
Stand on one foot and then the other, you may even want to lean on another

Chorus
