Hey, little songbird, gimme a song
I'm a busy man and I can't stay long
I've got clients to call, I've got orders to fill
I've got walls to build, I've got riots to quell
And they're givin' me hell back in Hades
Hey, little songbird, cat got your tongue?
Always a pity for one so pretty and young
When poverty come to clip your wings
And knock the wind right out of your lungs
Hey, nobody sings on empty
Strange is the call of this strange man
I wanna fly down and feed off his hand
I want a nice soft place to land
I wanna lie down forever
Hey, little songbird, you got something fine
You'd shine like a diamond down in the mine
And the choice is yours if you're willing to choose
Seeing as you've got nothing to lose
And I could use a canary
Suddenly, nothing is as it was
Where are you now Orpheus?
Wasn't it gonna be the two of us?
Weren't we birds of a feather?
Hey, little songbird, lemme guess
He's some kind of poet and he's penniless
Gimme your hand, he'll give you his hand-to-mouth
He'll wright you a poem when the hour is out
So why not fly south for the winter?
Hey, little songbird, look all around ya
See how the vipers and vultures surround ya
And they'll take you down and they'll pick you clean
If you stick around such a desperate scene
See, people get mean when the chips are down
