Lyrics

Bird Tree 
Bird tree, bird tree
Why you make me so happy 
I’m filled with a feeling of serenity 
when I look out at my bird tree
 
Verse One: The Tree
Right outside my kitchen window
a lilac reaches for the winter sky
Feeders hang on branches bare
it’s cold as hell but these birds don’t care
They love that lilac tree and so do I
Sing along now
 
Bird tree, bird tree
Why you make me so happy 
I’m filled with a feeling of serenity 
when I look out at my bird tree
 
Verse Two: Winter Birds 
So many of your kind have flown 
to a warmer temperate zone
I’m so glad you didn’t go
little birdy feet tracks in the snow 
You keep me company with my morning joe
 
Bird tree, bird tree
Why you make me so happy 
I’m filled with a feeling of serenity 
when I look out at my bird tree
 
Verse Three: Meet the Birds
The titmouse with it’s tufted head 
Woodpecker with it belly red
Three finches: purple, house and gold
The cardinal with it’s red so bold
Three sparrows: white breasted, house and song
The flicker with it beak so long
The junco with eyes as dark as night 
the nuthatch with it belly white
And who could forget the black capped chickadee
Not me!
 
Bird tree, bird tree
Why you make me so happy 
I’m filled with a feeling of serenity 
when I look out at my bird tree
 
Verse Four: Squirrels 
Well I’ve spent more time than I would like to admit
trying to deter those little shits
Ingenious, evil  adversary
furry insane enemy
Ya think ya got ‘em beat then they find another way 
to mess with my 
 
Bird tree, bird tree
Why you make me so happy 
I’m filled with a feeling of serenity 
when I look out at my bird tree
 
The Fifth and Final Verse: Gratitude
Well who could have guessed that a bag of seed
could make me feel so fine
Thank you for the songs you sing
Thank you for the joy you bring 
Thank you for all your wild life
Life!
 
Bird tree, bird tree
Why you make me so happy 
I’m filled with a feeling of serenity 
when I look out at my bird tree
when I look out at my bird tree
when I look out at my bird tree
