  • I can't look at the rocket launch
    The trophy wives of the astronauts
    And I won't listen to their words
    'Cause I like
    Birds

    I don't care for walkin' downtown
    Crazy auto-car gonna mow me down
    Look at all the people like cows in a herd
    Well, I like
    Birds

    If you're small and on a search
    I've got a feeder for you to perch on

    I can't stand in line at the store
    The mean little people are such a bore
    But it's alright if you act like a turd
    'Cause I like
    Birds

    If you're small and on a search
    I've got a feeder for you to perch on

    If you're small and on a search
    I've got a feeder for you to perch on
    I've got a feeder for you to perch on
    If you're small and on a search
    I've got a feeder for you to perch on
    I've got a feeder for you to perch on Writer/s: MARK O. EVERETT

  • Elizabeth from West Bridgewater, MaThis song seems to be about exactly what Mark said: "s--t happens, so you have to deal with the inconveniences in life." The person in the song doesn't seem to care about being too entertained w/things like a rocket launch, being wealthy with an "autocar", or getting frustrated with rude and asshole people in his life(the mean little people at the store) because he has that one thing he needs to be happy and deal with things: birds.
