Tom T. Hall — Everybody Loves To Hear A Bird Sing lyrics

Sometimes birds don't have enough to eat
There's not enough food in the fields or the streets
There are too many cities where there used to be trees so it's left up to you and me
Everybody loves to hear a bird sing (whistle)
The prettiest music you have ever heard here's how to make friends with the bird

First you get some peanut butter out of a jar
And you can buy a bag of bird seed anywhere
You mix it all together and you put it on the ground
And pretty soon the birds come around
Everybody loves to hear...

Some people buy spray and they spray it on the land
They kill all the little bitty bugs that they can
The birds eat up the bugs and it makes them sick I wish we didn't have to do that
Cause everybody loves to hear...

Right now you're young and you're not very tall
You're really very busy and you're rally very small
Someday when you're older and things go wrong you've gotta need a pretty bird song
Because everybody loves to hear...
