The Bird And The Worm - Album Version

Lyricist: Adam Young    Composer: Adam Young

If You're The Bird
Whenever we pretend it's summer
Then I'm the worm,
I know the part, it's such a bummer,
But fair is fair
If my segments get separated,
I'll scream and you'll be there.

Close your eyes (Close my eyes)
Slide the cotton off of your shoulder
And feel the shine (feel the shine)
I'm hooked so toss me over
And cast a line (oh I'll try)
Oh throw a party and greet my undersea friends (it depends)
As they arrive (if they arrive)

You and I left our troubles far behind (troubles far behind)
But I still have just one more question on my mind,
For all my pals who live in all the oceans and the seas,
With friends like these well, who needs enemies?

Da da da, da da da, da da da, da da-da da
Da da da, da da da, da da da, da da da-da da

If I'm your boy,
Let's take a short cut we remember,
And we'll enjoy,
Pickin' apples in late september
Like we've done for years,
Then we'll take a long walk through the corn field,
And I'll kiss you, between the ears,

If you're my girl,
Swirl me around your room with feeling,
And as we twirl, the glow-in-the-dark stars on your ceiling,
Will shine for us,
As love sweeps over the room,
Cause we tend to make each other blush (you make me blush)

You and I left our troubles far behind (troubles far behind),
But I still have just one more question on my mind,
For all my pals who live in all the oceans and the seas,
With fronds like these, well, who needs anenomes?

You're the bird, I'm the worm and it's plain to see
That we were meant to be

We were meant to be
Da da da, da da da, da da da, da da-da da
Da da da, da da da, da da da da
We were meant to be

Da da da, da da da, da da da, da da-da da
Da da da, da da da, da da da, da da da-da da

If you're the bird
If you're the bird
Then I'm the worm
We were meant to be
