there is a bird and he's sitting on our back fence
and we're watching through the window and we love the way he is
there is a bird and he has a million brothers and we love to see them change our world to green
and we're living in the city
pretending it's the country
do you do that?
Living in a bubble with a shield around the trouble in the world
there is a girl
and she's sitting on the back porch and when I see her I see
my mothers eyes
there is a girl and she's playing on the back lawn and when I see her sometimes I just cry
and soon we won't be pretending it's the country no no soon we won't be pretending it's the country cause we'll be there we'll be there hey hey hey......
