Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

A singing Patagonian could certainly DRIVE me to DRINK. And I'll drink to THAT!
A round of Guinness for everybody, and it's on me.

Wink Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Lukas came over and insisted the RB should have another song in his honour, but since he also sympathizes with Rival...we ended up with this:


The wild RB


I've kept a wild parrot for many a year
kept buying transfusions and bandaids and beer
but now I got bitten, right down to my core
I am bleeding and crying, can't take anymore


and it's no, nay, never
no, nay, never, no more
will I keep a wild parrot
no never no more


I went to a petshop I used to frequent
and showed the wise owner the blood on my hand
I asked for some stitches, she answered me nay
with a bird just like yours you'll need those every day


and it's no, nay, never
no, nay, never, no more
will I keep a wild parrot
no never no more


I reached in my pocket and took out my phone
to show her that cute side he once showed at home
It was ten years ago I remember it well
so .. I bought him some gifts that the lady did sell!


and it's no, nay, never
no, nay, never, no more
will I keep a wild parrot
no never no more


I went home to my parrot and gave him a toy
and I told my tormentor he is such a good boy
He reached for my fingers, he went for my nose!
I heard the beak snap and oh boy it was close!


and it's no, nay, never
no nay never no more
will I keep a wild parrot
no never no more


and it's no, nay, never
no, nay, never, no more
will I keep a wild parrot
no never no more

Rival, we toast to you: SLAINTE!
