Strange Bird Lyrics

Half fast and seldom seen
He don't blip the radar screen
On the deck below the dune
Under the commander's moon

Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low, not like all the rest
God only knows where the strange bird goes when he's flyin'
Everybody's trying to find him
But they don't know where to start
The ornithologist lady says that he has wings on his heart

Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low, not like all the rest
If you can't catch him, you can't claim him
If you can't see him, you can't name him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down
Wings on his heart, he's a strange bird

His only home is in the skies
Slicing through the cloudy pie
Above the whole Caribbean
Moves the swift amphibian

Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low, not like all the rest
If you can't catch him, you can't claim him
If you can't see him, you can't name him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down
Wings on his heart, he's a strange bird
Watch out girl, he's a strange bird

But he's in love with the lady of the waters
And she lives somewhere up around Cheauxvan
He's gonna circle high above her runway of love
Until she gives him her permission to land

Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low, not like all the rest
If you can't catch him, you can't claim him
If you can't see him, you can't name him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down

If you can't see him, you can't claim him
If you can't see him, you can't name him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down
Wings on his heart, he's a strange bird

Strange bird flying low
'Cross the Gulf of Mexico
Strange bird, not like all the rest
Watch out girl, he's a strange bird
Shoot you down, he's a strange bird
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a strange bird
