The Lyrics

This was my Halloween entry. As Rick Duncan said, he and I both thought it was for the birds.
The bird-police will knock at my door
They know I, got rare birds here galore

Blue Macaws, Birds-of-Paradise
And many others - they sure are looking nice

All my birds are illegal, though
It's a way, for me to make my dough

They're coming, gotta dump my birds
Never thought, I'd hear me say these words

Toucans are free now!
Toucans are free now!
You can take three now!
Toucans are free now!

The bird-police surely will be sore
Make no sound, you ugly old Condor!

If you're heard, they'll know you're here
Stupid bird - shut up and drink this beer!

My birds weren't harmed, they're all, in good health
There's nothing wrong with my, way of earning wealth

I like it here with my, feathered friends
Yet I must, find new homes for them

Toucans are free now!
Help yourself, please, now!
Toucans are free now!
Hey man, take three now!

Have bird-police come to take me away?
Why do they bother me?

Got to clean-up fea-thers they might see
Or they'll slap cuffs on me

Yeah!

(---instrumental---)

("Squawww-aww-awwk")

Toucans are free now
Toucans are free now
Toucans are free now
Toucans are free now

("Squawwwk") ("shhh!")

Toucans are free now!

("Squawwwk") ("shut-UP!")

Toucans are,
Toucans are,

("Squawwwk") ("shhh!")

Toucans are free now!

("Squawww-aww-awwk") ("Pssst-hey-shut-UP-shhh!")

Well, I was going to suggest that the guy in this song should take up smuggling satellite dishes to Canada, but that's back to being legal again. Ah, who cares? It's a swell song. 555.

"Shut up and drink this beer" - heh heh. I can't explain it, but suddenly I'm feeling this urge to eat Froot Loops.
