The Lyrics

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Got an urging, gonna plug up his leak
Gonna stuff marshmallows up his beak
Want to show this bird how life can be sweet
And if he just cannot be kind
I'll pull feathers off his behind

Gagging noisy birdies is so passe'
You gotta keep up on the methods today
Have to get a handle on the current way
To really get this fowl to whine
Fill his bowl with turpentine

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Spit wads make great decoration
Also good for motivation
I'll bring that little birdy down to his knees
Shooting wads of paper and baby peas
Foul-mouthed birdy better concede

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Make him go away
Make him go away
Make him go away
Make him go away

Polly'd shut up if he's really smart
Cause I've got a bucket of sticky tar
And I am prepared to go that far
That bird's really pushing his luck
He'll never get himself unstuck

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)
Down!

Don't want to hound
Don't want to frown
Oh, won't you please take him down

I will be brief
Don't need this grief
Won't you please take him down

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Take him down
Take him down
Won't you please take him down

Don't want to hound
Don't want to frown
Oh, won't you please take him down

I will be brief
Don't need this grief
Won't you please take him down

Take him down or the parrot I'm hitting
Cause he's talking too mean and his beak keeps spitting
Won't you please take him down (take him down)

Don't want to hound
Don't want to frown
Oh, won't you please take him down

I believe he's now an ex-parrot...

Very original, Tim - I suspect fowl play. Lovely plumage, though, the Norwegian Blue ;-)

The Monty Python Boys would be proud. Or was that Peter Cook? No, that was The Frog and the Peach.

Those are absolutley horrible lyrics, and just a rotten poem about abusing a bird. Obviously this person has been around a bird that is being horribly ignored and abused. If this person still has this bird, I suggest they give it away to a shelter right away. I personally think its pretty sick.

Jen, I have traced it back, with the help of my psychiatrist, to the talk about the birds and the bees. Maybe I was too young, maybe I was too recently stung, but it resulted in a trauma I haven't recovered from.
