For all of you who
Come from eggs
With feathered tails and
Spindly legs
To those who chirp or
Honk or quack
We say: "It's time to
Pay you back."

Hey, you, who grew
Up in a nest
You've earned the right
To take a rest
You've sung for us for
Oh so long
So sit back now and
Hear our song
And we say:

Tweet, tweet, peep, peep
Gobble, gobble, coo
Chirp, chirp, cheep, cheep
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Come on and listen
To the music
Listen to the words
This song, this song, this song
Is for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)
It's for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)

Now listen:
If you're a robin, hawk or owl
Pigeon, crow or waterfowl
Sparrow, duck or cockatoo
Hey, listen up! This song's
For you
Sing it!

Tweet, tweet, peep, peep
Gobble, gobble, coo
Chirp, chirp, cheep, cheep
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Come on and listen
To the music
Listen to the words
This song, this song, this song
Is for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)
It's for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)

Bawk, honk, caw, quack
Whistle, whistle, hoot
We wrote this song, and
It's a beaut
Screech, whippoorwill
Honk, tweet-tweet, peep
In birdie language that
Means, "Thanks a heap."

Tweet, tweet, peep, peep
Gobble, gobble, coo
Chirp, chirp, cheep, cheep
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Come on and listen
To the music
Listen to the words
This song, this song, this song
Is for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)
It's for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)

Tweet, tweet, peep, peep
Gobble, gobble, coo
Chirp, chirp, cheep, cheep
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Come on and listen
To the music
Listen to the words
This song, this song, this song
Is for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)
It's for the birds!
(La la la la, la la la)

Cheep!
