lyrics

My shiny bird
With yr skin so blue
And yr eyes so white
From where I'm standing
Yr smile looks like
it was painted on
It probably was,
But I don't care
My shiny bird
Threw down my pick
Went into your house
Said, "I ain't working no more in yr silver mine"
My lungs are so black
But the ore's so sweet
Can't make up my mind
Couldn't do it without you
My shiny bird
Oh, where do you go
When we all leave you alone
If that's all you want
I want to know
Now the great horned owl
Has a job to do
And the morning dove
Has a song to coo
But my shiny bird
Sits on the porch
In perpetual splendor
Doing nothing at all
My shiny bird
