The Lyrics

This began as a childhood mondegreen of "Solitary Man." Since most of my personal parody-lyrics selection submissions have been fairly depressing, I decided to provide a more optimistic, brighter-toned one this time. Since Neil Diamond's voice was similar to mine before parkinsonism forced his retirement from concert stages, I decided that something from him would be more appropriate.
When June comes around he'll be found till September
Shine or rain
It's all the same
He looks like he glows no one knows where he comes from
But where he flies
Our spirits rise

(Refrain)
Look up in the air and he's there you can see him
He means no harm when it's warm he has his freedom
He spreads a hopeful word
The summer silver bird
The summer silver bird

The cold and the snow offer no welcomes to him
Fall through spring
Make him sting
He doesn't need to be caged and any age shows his feathers
Shining bright
Day or night

(Repeat refrain)
Instrumental third verse and bridge
(Repeat refrain; fade out on last lines)
The "Summer Silver Bird" of the title and lyrics actually does not exist. That particular bird is a character whom I have created through these parody lyrics.
