The Lyrics

“The Birds” (1963); bird wrangler: John B Cardos
A-well-a, everybody’s heard about the birds
Birds, birds, birds, birds are a scourge
A-well-a birds, birds, birds, birds are a scourge
Then there’s a “bird,”[1] bird bird, bird on the verge
Of going batty; birds have her unnerved
She’s like a birdbrain, lacking in verve
Hope she don’t lose nerve and cause car to swerve.

A-well-a don’t you know about the birds?
Hell, everybody crows that “the birds are a scourge!”
Those hellish birds, birds, birds are a scourge. . .

Murder birds!

Caw, caw, caw, hoot, hoot, squawk now,
Jo-jo-jo-john, beaked hawk, wow!
Caw, caw, hoot, squawk now. . .

A-well-a don’t you know about the birds?
Feather-flecked bodies show that the birds are a scourge.

Caw, caw, caw, hoot, hoot, squawk now,
Caw, caw, hoot, squawk now. . .


[1]Melanie Daniels, as played by Tippi Hedren (Marnie in “Marnie”; mother of Melanie Griffith)

Excellent job here! I love the original song (although it's annoying as hell it's a fun beat). I also did a parody about "The Birds": http://www.amiright.com/parody/80s/beastieboys21.shtml
