lyrics

She and her husband
Try and attract bluebirds
I hear all about it
Whenever I have words to send
Carol’s my typist
She lives upstate in Woodstock
We chitchat for hours
Oh how I miss our long talks

Have you seen any bluebirds?
There don’t seem to be any here
I guess they’ve all disappeared
In a world without bluebirds

When my words are ready
I say goodbye to my wife, put on my coat
I go to the store to buy a manila envelope
In with the locals down on Second Avenue
Who won the lottery? Hey, what happened to your foot?

Their words are a soothing song
With all the bluebirds gone
At least I have my words
In a world without bluebirds

The ones we elected seem to bring us all to our knees
They’ve hitched up their wagons to a horse that has got mad cow disease
This is not what I fought for, the interests of the one percent
Although I am tired, I’m ready to get in the ring again

Have you seen any bluebirds?
My belief in them is firm
We’ve set up homes for them in the yard
For when the bluebirds return
For when the bluebirds return
For when the bluebirds return
