The Lyrics

Thought I would cap JAB's 8-song tribute to Hitchcock's movie "The Birds" with this little ditty that explains the actions of the bird swarm. Apparently they were all in love with no-talent (but sexy) starlet, Tippi Hedren (or as she was dubbed in MAD magazine, Tipsy Headrinse)
Why did birds .. suddenly appear
Bout the time .. you came here?
Just like me, they longed to be
Close to you

Why did crows .. gather at the school
When you sat .. to smoke a Kool
Just like me, they longed to be
Close to you

On the day that you arrived
The avians flocked together
And decided to create a scene askew
So they dive bombed townfolk from the air
Pecking away at their eyes of blue (do be da doo)

That is why ... all the gulls in town
Followed you .. all around
Just like me, they want to be
Close to you

On the night that you survived
The avians flocked together
And decided to create your worst nightmare
So they piqued your interest in a noise
Then swarmed at you in their attic lair (in your hair)

That is why, all the gulls in town (Gulls in town)
Rushed at you (Rushed at you)
All around (All around)
Just like me, they longed to be
Close to you

CA-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-AW! Close to you
CA-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-AW! Close to you
AA-A-A-A-A-A-A-AUGH! Close to you
