Lyrics

There’s a troubled bird outside my window
He's been singin there for forty-one days
Is there somethin he’s tryin tell me?
Somethin he’s dyin to say?

Or is he just hoping for a handout
Or longing for a place to stay?
Soon come the colors of October
Soon he’ll be flyin' away

Tweetiebird, oh tweetiebird
Come tweet me out a song
Tweetiebird oh tweetiebird
Come tell me what went wrong
Your mama wove a home up in the sky
And daddy drove to Leavenworth to die

Rorschach Cadillac
Come give that dog a bone
And give that cat a cat call
On the devil’s telephone
Hit reverse and try to turn back time
Back to where the sun would always shine

Tweetiebird, oh tweetiebird
No tellin what’s in store
Your message in a bottle
Only tells me “nevermore”

Tweetiebird don’t cry
It’s time to testify
Leave that bottle right outside the door
Crossed hearts may hope to die
Leavin bottles where they lie
Plastic wishes washed up on the shore

Tweetiebird, oh tweetiebird
Please grant one wish for me
You can rack the heavens
But please don’t shake my tree
While temptations a'plenty would be nice
Some semblance of serenity will suffice

Tweetiebird, oh tweetiebird
Lest I fail †o mention
It hurts, you know, to see you so
In need of some attention
There’s always gonna be a next in line
New love blooms and new lights always shine

Tweetiebird don’t cry
It’s time to testify
Leave that bottle right outside the door
Crossed hearts may hope to die
Leave bottles where they lie
Plastic wishes washed up on the shore

On the shore, new lights shine…

Hummingbird, oh hummingbird
Come hum me out a song
Hummingbird, oh hummingbird
Come show me how it’s done
