The Lyrics

SQUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK
In the bottom of this cage it's shitty
Comes from where the son don't shine
Other birds tell me ain't no way I'm flyin'

I'm a parrot, I'm so young and pretty
If I had balls , they'd be blue
When I'm dead I'll still be a virgin too, I know

Preen my feathers on the perch at night
Hatch an egg? there ain't no way
I got another cage mate, but he's so gay
Oh yes, I know it!

(YEAH) he's been jerkin' so hard
(YEAH) I been watchin' you, baby
(YEAH) every night he's gay
YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

I gotta gnow outta this cage
If it's the last thing I ever chew
I gotta gnaw outta this cage
This bird wants to be a wife, before I'm through

I'm a parrot, I'm so young and pretty
If I had balls they'd be blue
When I'm dead I'll still be a virgin too, I know

Preen my feathers on the perch at night
Hatch an egg? there ain't no way
I got another cage mate, but he's so gay
Oh yes, I know it

Yeah, he's been jerkin' so hard
Yeah I've been watchin you, baby
Yeah, every night I say
YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

I gotta gnaw outta this cage
If it's the last thing I ever chew
I gotta gnaw outta this cage
This bird wants to be a wife, before I'm through

You checked mine out, so I'm returning the favor. This fits the original very well. May I add, "you deserve a better life, before you're through"?

Very well done, Polly. I especially liked the chorus for the closely-matched rhyming. My only criticism or suggestion is that it might have been funnier if the narrator were a gay bird, too, like the ones in the news. Of course, they seem to be perfectly happy the way they are, so no reason to want to gnaw out, then. How about "Up, Up and I'm Gay With My Beautiful Macaw"? Peace and happy writing to you--I'm glad you're on the site. d;:^)

444. It made me smile a lot. Not bad for a first attempt! I wish you wrote a second verse. I'm not sure, but the last line of the chorus is not the way I remember the original.

Everyone seems to know who Polly is but me........anyway, I see some potential here, granted it could have been funnier, but nice job on a first try.....

Polly, when you gnaw your way out of that cage, my cat will be waiting for you.

Polly - Pretty funny stuff, I docked you a little 'cause you needed to edit a little better (not that I haven't been there and failed to do that myself on occasion). I wouldn't have for maybe one or two but there were a bit more than that. Still, a very good first post here.

As a true lover of parakeets and parrots of all kinds, I could almost see this one. Nice, if desperate 'personification'. Subtle commentary on same-gender marriages, I wonder?
chas roper - November 21, 2007 - Report this comment
that took some imagination. very creative.

Very funny Polly Parrot - not related to Tommy Turtle by any chance? - the couplet "I gotta gnaw outta this cage - If it's the last thing I ever chew" was a sublime parodic gift, but the whole thing was funny - 555
