Well, I saw a bird today --- flying from a bush
C Am D Dsus4
and the wind blew it away.
Bm E7 A E F#m F#m/E
And the black-eyed mother sun scorched the butterfly at play
D Bm E E7/D
--- velvet veined. I saw it burn.
C Am G F Dm C
With a wintry storm-blown sigh, a silver cloud blew right on by.
G Em D Dsus4 G G/F# Em Em/D C
And, taking in the morning, I sang --- O Requiem.
(REST THE SAME)
Well, my lady told me, ``Stay.''
I looked aside and walked away along the Strand.
But I didn't say a word, as the train time-table blurred
close behind the taxi stand.
Saw her face in the tear-drop black cab window.
Fading in the traffic; watched her go.
And taking in the morning, heard myself singing ---
Here I go again.
It's the same old story.
Well, I saw a bird today --- I looked aside and walked
away along the Strand.
