lyrics

Well spring had finally sprung
I was out on a run
By the river in the cool morning sun
Something hit me in the head
It had wings of orange and red
Yelling at me saying I gotta leave

Red winged blackbird
Sing your warning song
Red winged blackbird
Says get off of my lawn
It's the red winged blackbird
The house and the porch
Trying to take it by force
How'd you come to thinking that this whole place is yours

We were having a picnic
Oh but you would not have it
Attacking us from up in the air
We weren't bothering you
Why can't we be here too
Oh but you absolutely refuse to share

Red winged blackbird
Sing your warning song
Red winged blackbird
Says get off of my lawn
It's the red winged blackbird
The house and the porch
Trying to take it by force
How'd you come to thinking that this whole place is yours
