The Lyrics

thought i'd pick on a different hitchcock film for a change
small and mean with hunger, stalkin'
the birds are freaky, squealin' and squawkin'
and when attackin'
the ones they're hackin'
go YAHHHHHHHHHH

as they stalk, they flock in numbers
they wait so cool...and seem so gentle
but when attackin'
the ones they're hackin'
go YAHHHHHHHHHH

ooh...and they want me so badly
wild...as they bellow and hover
yes...how they look at me madly
and each day its a crazed thing to see
they land on my head angrily

small and mean, with hunger, stalkin'
the birds are freaky, squealin' and squawkin'
there's one attackin' my eye
and now i can't see
he's blinded poor me
and now i can't see
because he's blinded poor me

This flies. Now, how about "Vertigo" for "Vertigo"?

I'm glad no one gave you "the bird" for this. I pictured Stan Getz with a pigeon flying into the bell of his sax. Great job.

Love it...your movie Cliff Notes version is right on the money. BTW, I'm working on one that's also about birds, to "Losing My Religion"....called "Oozing From Three Pigeons". But it's still kinda crappy right now.

As good as any of the Bates series you've done. Well done Alvin Hitchcock. If you don't grab that bird in your hand he's going to peck someone's bush.
