The Lyrics

If you're finding it hard to follow (which it shouldn't be), try getting TOS or the lyrics to help you. I've followed the original lyrics and I could sing along fine with TOS. Enjoy!
You know i'm your friend
And you can always tell a friend
'Cause on a friend you can depend
That's why we're friends until the end but what's this?

Stolen from the store just left of Main Street
No-one was watching you
Return the birdhouse that you stole
Not to be a nagging old donkey
Say you'll return or give money
For the little birdhouse that you stole

You have a few secrets to tell
Before you're locked inside a jail cell
For all the crimes you've crimed i'm listening in so you might as well
They'll charge discriminately
So can you please listen to me
They'll lock you up for life please note that's spelt l-i-f-e

Life sentence infinate
You'll be regretting it
Mind won't rest

Return it to the store just left of main street
'Fore someone catches you
Please return that birdhouse that you stole
Not to be a bee in your bonnet
You might wanna wipe the juice you spilt on it
And return that birdhouse that you stole

Just 'cause i'm your friend
'Cause i'm your only friend
It doesn't mean you can depend on me
To return the birdhouse that you 'leant' 'cause I wont

The shop's just opposite me
Return unnoticeably
Before the guard comes out and you'll keep your police record clean
Though I respect you a lot
I don't want to lose my job
And spend my Sunday afternoons in bed 'til 3 o clock
Testing my nerves to bits
Won't get away with this
So I thought...

You're inside the store just left of Main Street
The guards are watching you
Return the birdhouse that you stole
Now it looks as one might be on it
He's away just like Haleigh's commet
Quick! Return the birdhouse that you stole

And while you're at it
Apologize a thousand times for the
Birdhouse that you stole

Not to ruin your parade and rain on it
Say that you're the only who's done it
And replace the birdhouse that you stole

You're at the store just left of Main Street (And while you're at it)
Guards watching over you (Apologize a thousand times for the)
You return the birdhouse that you stole (Birdhouse that you stole)
And now the police are all on it
That's gonna put a dent in your bonnet
You've returned the birdhouse that you stole

Now you're headed for the station down at South Street (While you're at it)
The police all over you (Apologize a thousand times for the)
And that stupid birdhouse that you stole (Birdhouse that you stole)
Maybe you'll get out with bail on it
Really sorry, friend but I haven't got it
Still, you've got that birdhouse in your cell

Again, DKTOS, so no vote. Another friendly tip is that you will be in the top ten in the authors soon ( if you are not already ), so no need to link your parodies at the bottom, because parodies are classified by TOS name, not the parody name ( so most will have a difficult time finding it unless the parody name sounds alot like TOSs name )

I think when I submitted this I only had 8 or something, so I didn't have an author's link. If you look on my other parody 'Brady Boys' and other new parodies you will see that i've just said do an author's link at the bottom

I voted, 4,3,4... It wasn't that funny, you should have done a different song of theirs... not that i should be talking. it seems wherever i click, you either made it or commented on it, so i'm getting a little freaked out. not really, but oh well
