Sweet Talking


Listen, listen . . .  just listen

I am only going to say it one more time

Once, with no repetition

And the first bird went on

Meanwhile the second bird is getting restless

Why don’t you just say what you want?

But will you be paying attention to me?

Why not? Stop nagging and just say what you want!

The first bird looked hard, and then flew away

Never to return

Never to return

Sweet talking is not going to work

The second bird has been through all this

She will stand for no nonsense

So quit the stuff

and let us fly away

Away, away. . . . to some peaceful place

Where birds can sing from their hearts

To praise the Maker

To praise the Maker!
