Standard Tuning EADGBE

Intro - C (2nd String 3rd fret)

(Acapella) Well I didn't tell anyone but a bird flew by,
saw what I done he set up a nest outside
and he sang about what I'd become,
 
C GHe sang so loud, sang so clear
Am FI was afraid all the neighbours would hear
C Gso I invited him in just to reason with him,
Am F (strum once)promised I wouldn't do it again
But he sang
Clouder and louder inside the house
Gand now I couldn't get him out
Amso I trapped him under a cardboard box
Fstood on it to make it stop
CI picked up the bird and above the dim
Gsaid that's the last time you'll ever sing
C GHeld him down, broke his neck
Am F taught him a lesson he wouldn't forget
C G Am FBut in my dreams began to hear
C G that old familiar
Am (strum once) F (strum once) tweet tweet tweet
C I opened my mouth to scream and shout
Gand I waved my arms and flapped about
Ambut I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout
Fcouldn't scream and I couldn't shout
(repeat) Cause the song was coming...
C G Am Ffrom my mouth, from my mouth
C G Am Ffrom my mouth, from my mouth
(repeat to fade)
