Angry Bird

Al Stewart

One day you fell down from the sky
You overthought things, forgot how to fly
You’re an angry bird walking in circles
All alone, angry bird

Now you don’t belong, you stagger ‘round
Don’t like the air, don’t like the ground
You’re an angry bird walking in circles
All alone, angry bird

Radical penguins led you astray
They told you wings were so passé
Angry bird walking in circles
No way out, angry bird

You say it’s pointless, you say you’re cursed
You fill the night up with sarcastic chirps
Angry bird walking in circles
No way out, angry bird

You’ve fallen in with the avian fringe
They fill your head with thoughts of revenge
Angry bird walking in circles
All alone, angry bird

On the moonlit branches, on a summer’s night
You could take your chances, you could take flight
You’re a bird in name only
Pretty lonely, angry bird

Your sun is sinking and it’s so absurd
What were you thinking angry bird?
