  • If we take this bird in
    With its broken leg
    We could nurse it
    She said
    Come inside
    For a little lie down with me
    If you fall asleep
    It wouldn’t be the worst thing
    But when I wake up
    Your make-up is on my shoulder
    And tell me, if I lie down
    Would you stay now
    And let me hold you?

    But if I kiss you
    Will your mouth read this truth?
    Darling, how I miss you
    Strawberries taste how lips do
    And it’s not complete yet
    Mustn’t get our feet wet
    Cos that leads to regret
    Diving in too soon
    And I’ll owe it all to you
    My little bird
    My little bird

    If we take a walk out
    In the morning dew
    We could lay down
    So I’m next to you
    Come inside
    For a little home-made tea
    If you fall asleep
    Then at least you’re next to me
    And if I wake up
    You see, it’s late, love
    Go back to sleep
    I’m covered by nature
    And I’m safe now
    Underneath this oak tree
    With you beside me

    But if I kiss you
    Will your mouth read this truth?
    Darling, how I miss you
    Strawberries taste how lips do
    And it’s not complete yet
    Mustn’t get our feet wet
    Cos that leads to regret
    Diving in too soon
    And I’ll owe it all to you
    My little bird
    My little bird
    My little bird
    My little bird

    And of all these things
    I’m sure of
    I’m not quite certain
    Of your love
    And you made me scream
    But then I made you cry
    When I left that little bird
    With its broken leg to die

    But if I kiss you
    Will your mouth read this truth
    Darling, how I miss you
    Strawberries taste how lips do
    And it’s not complete yet
    Mustn’t get our feet wet
    Cos that leads to regret
    Diving in too soon
    But I’ll owe it all to you
    My little bird
    My little bird woah oh oh
    My little bird
    My little bird
    You’re my little bird
