Pigeon fancying in London - a touching song, ultimately about the flight of the soul.

lyrics

Little Bird

Hey little bird!
Why don’t you fly?
There’s all that room
Up in the sky.

Hey little bird!
Why don’t you fly?
You’ve got the wings -
You’ve got the sky.

Don’t want see a caged bird kept in,
Wanna see her taking wing
And fly away so high
Across the London sky.
Fly away so high
Across the sky.

Granddad was a card
And pigeons were his thing.
He gave them names
And he gave em a ring.

Grandma said he loved ‘em more than her
And one day she showed him the door
And Granddad broke a wing,
Couldn’t do his thing.
Grandma said they could not stay,
Pretty things must fly away.
So Granddad let em fly
Away across the sky.

Granddad didn’t say much
For ten years or more.
Then one spring
He heard a song at his door.

Don’t want see a caged bird kept in,
Wanna see her taking wing
And fly away so high
Across the London sky.

Hey little bird!
Time to fly -
You’ve got the wings,
You’ve got the sky.

Hey little bird!
Why don’t you fly?
There’s all that room
Up in the sky...
