  • There's birds up in the trees
    My words they want to eat
    They wait for me to speak
    They swoop in and swallow them down

    There's people on the ground
    Hungry for some beats to pound
    Don't need no bread
    They just scream for a morsel of
    Sound, more sound

    Out, right out
    Took the words
    Right out of my mouth

    Then you came into the room
    Everybody was, bam
    Well she must be a rockette
    One said done and the others said
    Wow, oh wow

    Out, right out
    Took the words
    Right out of my mouth

    Out, right out
    Took the words
    Right out of my mouth

    Then when I stared back
    Into your eyes
    We had the same expression
    Complete surprise
    And we're about to let it out
    These words from my mouth

    He said
    Wow, oh wow

    Out, right out
    Took the words
    Right out of my mouth

    Out, right out
    Took the words
    Right out of my mouth

    Oh yeah, there's birds up in the trees
    Look there's birds up in the trees Writer/s: DAVID MICHAEL NAVARRO, DUFF ROSE MCKAGAN, PERRY FARRELL, STEPHEN ANDREW PERKINS
