lyrics

it was a good size room, the bird room, and it had windows, it was nice and bright. and so, after she couldn't take care of them, she said you can take care of them dorothy, nothing too hard, i used have to clean the cages, line them with newspaper, and feed them. and they used to eat, some of the exotic ones would eat chopped egg and then they had feed or something mixed in with it, and some of the other ones had seed, they always had to have water. well, that was fine. but one day i went in and there was one dead, in the bottom of the cage. so, i didn't want to tell her. she never got up much anyway. so i went out in the kitchen, and got the nurse, and i said, "i got a problem! the thing is dead", i said "you go outside, and go around, and i'll open the window and hand you the cage". so i did that, and mrs. fallass never knew. i went in, she said "hello dorothy, what are you doing?" i said "i've come to check up on the birds, see if they've got enough water" "oh, that's nice dear" and i went in and we were laughing, but i handed her out the bird, she never knew the difference.
