Birds Flew Backwards

  • The car zoomed past, I watched the passersby
    Birds flew backwards
    Yet still arrived
    Winter seemed to linger
    But now the swallows have arrived
    Won't be long, 'til summertime

    Walked through woods, to the power lines
    Saw birds fly backwards in perfect line
    Oh, winter seemed to melt now
    Now the swallows have arrived
    Can't be long, 'til summertime, summertime Writer/s: ANDY WILLIAMS, JEZ WILLIAMS, JIMI GOODWIN
