Tennessee Bird Walk

Take away the trees and the birds'll have to sit upon the ground (hum)
Take away their wings and the birds'll have to walk to get around
Take away the birdbaths and dirty birds will soon be everywhere
Take away their feathers and the birds will walk around in underwear
Take away their (whistle) and the birds'll have to whisper when they sing
(Chirp chirp!)
Take away their common sense and they'll be heading southward in the spring
Oh, remember me, my darling when spring is in the air
And the bald headed birds are whispering everywhere
When you see them walking southward in their dirty underwear
That's the Tennessee bird walk

How about some trees so the birds won't have to sit upon the ground? (hum)
And how about some wings so the birds won't have to walk to get around?
And how about a birdbath or two so the birds will all be clean?
And how about some feathers so their underwear no longer can be seen?
How about a little (whistle) so the birds won't have to whisper when they sing? 
(Chirp chirp!)
And how about some common sense
So they won't be blocking traffic in the spring?

Oh, remember me, my darling when spring is in the air
And the bald headed birds are whispering everywhere
When you see them walking southward in their dirty underwear
That's the Tennessee bird walk (Chirp chirp!)
That's the Tennessee bird walk (Chirp chirp!)
That's the Tennessee bird walk (Chirp chirp!)
That's the Tennessee bird walk (Chirp chirp!)
(Repeat and fade)
