The Lyrics

Dude wants a bird...yeah, with a song this short, there's not a lot of intro to give. Except for that "wingèd" is pronounced "wing-ed".
I need a little pet
It's true, but which one to get?
Can't choose somethin' out the blue
Must choose in advance, it's true

I'd like somethin' that flies
A wingèd friend sounds nice
But don't give me some borin' budgie
Please, dude

Want somethin' with more vibe
Than too-common parrots, right
I'd fume at a cockatoo
It's true, it's not what I'd choose

Ev'ryone else, I find
Keep cockatiels, that's fine
But not for me, no int'rest for me

I need a unique pet
A toucan would suit my fix
It's true, pelican works too
A huge beak is just my tune

And if you ask me why
The answer's simple: I
Last bird I had was small in size
That bird was of the woodpeck kind

It's true
So true
Real true
Too true

Seriously? Chrome dictionary has cockatrice but not cockatiel?

So, are you implying that the woodpecker did damage to your... uh, bird? Or am I reading too much into it? 555
