Pretty Little Bird

Pretty little cage with the gold gilt bars
Pretty little bird singing at the stars
Flit from perch to perch in endless refrain
Singing and preening just like you were trained

Pretty little jewels and fine foreign cars
Pretty little woman sitting in bars
Flit from man to man in endless refrain
Singing and preening just like she was trained

Pretty little houses and manicured yards
Pretty little families living a farce
Flit from less to more in endless refrain
Singing and preening just like they were trained

Pretty little mothers and lightning bug jars
Pretty little children chaining their hearts
Flit from school to sport in endless refrain
Singing and preening just like they were trained

Pretty little bird in a gold gilt cage

  1. Wow! But least some have gilded gold cages in which to be unknowingly miserable. Others must wait a lifetime for the iron to rust away… too late for freedom.
