Bird

Audio available soon:


Mr. Mason’s got his fingers on the knees of a girl And Mr. Dixon is shuffling the cards he’s gonna deal

They packed a car full of laundry and a trailer full of gin They crossed the state doing 90 and came rolling on in

They don’t mind the heavy lifting when it’s paid off the books They don’t mind a little missing but the cops are such crooks

Now it’s the dog days of summer and the counties so dry They were welcome like kings by a million bloodshot eyes

They put the bird in the stove and leave it alone Take it out when the meat’s just falling off the bone

They say the friends you make are the measure of a man If you believe that one they’ll be sleeping in your van

Some of these killers only want a little peace But most of them want to be dancing in the street

They put the bird in the stove and leave it alone Take it out when the meat’s just falling off the bone

They keep their bottles in the back where the kids can’t see They keep one for guests and one for emergencies

Someone called up the super and they broke down the door They found them all in diamonds and singing for the poor

They put the bird in the stove and leave it alone Take it out when the meat’s falling off the bone

Skipping stone the children left you all alone So just hit that road and skip yourself back home
