The Lyrics

The bird in this parody sounds almost as annoying as the OS.
Talk (yeah)
ing (yeah)
Bird (yeah)
Yeah (yeah)
Talking bird, now

Everybody must have heard
My wife bought me a talking bird
At first I thought that bird was cute
Until I learned it was so astute
He told my missus everything
"Bout me and my neighbor, our little fling
And that's why
I wanna kill that little squawker
Say yeah, yeah whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, uh, oh

Hear me now and understand
How he made me a desperate man
He told my wife about the two grand stashed
In my bottom drawer, she took my cash
I lost my job, he told my boss
I said his wife really ought to floss
And that's why
I'm gonna make him disappear
Say yeah, yeah whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
Whoa, uh, oh

He's really gettin' on my nerves
I'm gonna give him what he deserves
The IRS auditor came
Bird said I made twice what I'd claimed
He's spilled my beans for the last time
I'm gonna break his neck and spine
Don't know the reason why
He keeps on tellin' everybody
Say yeah, yeah woah, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, uh, oh

Everything went just as planned
I had him eatin' out of my hand
I was so smart, oh yes indeed
A little bit of poison in his feed
I left him, thought my work was done
But that little pecker called 911
These are the reasons why
The judge gave me fifteen years

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, now, now. Baby

that is VERY funny Rick - you hit on a great idea and NAILED it - what a shocking OS, and what a great job you did kicking its ass - 555 - (PS loved the last verse)

Superb top to bottom. I've got an African Grey parrot that likes to sit on my shoulder as I read these. I blindfolded the little squaker so he wouldn't get any ideas from this. Great stuff, Rick. Fantastic storyline

Yeesh, DKTOS. I need some remedial music classes. However I will not disagree with 8 other 555 as this is funny, so now you have 9 555.

(T) What a downright BASTARD that bird IS, Rick - the sheer noive! - everyone knows those IRS guys always take the utterings of a parrot on face value - where's the right of reply, for God's sake? - (and those 911 operators are just the same) - great story-telling and funny as hell!

(ABC) I DKTOS either, but I know your pacing and the story was funny. 5's
Red Ant - December 13, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABCT05) Still DKTOS but I think I've managed a passing grade in that remedial music class previously mentioned. Still funny too.

ABC--Holy Myna Bird, Batman...this is GOOD stuff! Hi-freaking-larious. And I LOVE the OS, so that makes it even better...=)

Funny premise Rick. I would have thought having him eaten out of your hand would pretty much solve your problem.
Jeff Reuben - December 27, 2005 - Report this comment
(T) Still good...should have flipped the bird =)
