At the bird store
You get what you came for
(At the bird store)
At the bird store
You can't get a goldfish
(At the bird store)

They've got cockatoos and cockatiels
Sherbert-colored parakeets
Blue macaws, and other birds
For wearing with your pirate shirt

At the bird store
That's where I met her
(At the bird store)
At the bird store
All covered in feathers
(At the bird store)

High up on a high high chair--
With feathers in her purple hair
Selling birds to children who
Had just walked over from the school

To the bird store
They got what they came for
(At the bird store)
At the bird store
You can't buy a hamster
(At the bird store)

   Birds are very numerous
   And they see better than us
   But they sure don't hear too well
   At the shop or or the bus
   It's very cacophonous
   When the birds are makin' a fuss
   That's why you have to yell
   Over everyone else

At the bird store
Everyone's yelling
(At the bird store)

At the bird store
No one can hear you
(At the bird store)

Parrotlets and lorikeets
Canaries tweeting tiny tweets
There's a finch for everyone--
Attila the hungry Hungarian Hun

Shops at the bird store
Nobody knows it
(At the bird store)
At the bird store
Everyone goes
(To the bird store)
