what a little birdie told me

the bird said, so how ya doin'?
i said, can't complain. how you doin'?
the bird said, oh not bad. a little of this, a little of that. you know.
i said, actually, no i don't. i mean it must be cool flyin' whenever ya want. man, i'd love to do that. you know, defy gravity whenever i felt like it.
the bird said, it's okay. but ya seen one roof top, ya seen them all.
i said, i guess, but it's still the idea that you can defy gravity.
the bird said, well, to tell ya the truth, i'd like to be able to defy gravity like you guys can but i can't because of this goddam boney beak.
i said, what the hell are ya talkin' about.
the bird said, i'm talkin' smiling man, smilin'.
