  • If you're the bird
    Whenever we pretend it's summer
    Then I'm the worm
    I know the part, it's such a bummer

    But fair is fair
    If my segments get separated
    I'll scream
    And you'll be there

    Close your eyes
    (Close my eyes)
    So I'd be caught and off of your shoulder
    And feel the shine
    (Feel the shine)
    I'm hooked so toss me over
    And cast a line
    (Well I'll try)
    I'll throw a party and greet my undersea friends
    (It depends)
    As they arrive
    (If they arrive)

    You and I left our troubles far behind
    But I still have just one more question on my mind
    For all my pals who live in the oceans and the seas
    With friends like these well,
    Who needs enemies?

    If I'm your boy
    Let's take a shortcut we remember
    And we'll enjoy
    Picking apples in late September like
    We've done for years
    Then we'll take a long walk
    Through the cornfield
    And I'll kiss you
    Between the ears

    If you're my girl
    Swirl me around your room with feeling
    And as we twirl
    The glow in the dark stars on your ceiling
    Will shine for us
    As love sweeps over the room
    'cause we tend to make
    Each other blush

    You and I left our troubles far behind
    But I still have just one more question on my mind
    For all my pals who live in the oceans and the seas
    With friends like these well,
    Who needs an enemies?

    You're the bird, I'm the worm
    And it's plain to see
    That we were meant to be

    We were meant to be
    We were meant to be
    We were meant to be Writer/s: ADAM YOUNG, MATTHEW THIESSEN
