And the songbirds are singing, like they know the score.
And I love you, I love you, I love you, like never before.

(I always wondered about that "like never before" bit. Did the narrator not like the person until just now?)

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings.
The six o'clock alarm would never ring.
But it rings and I rise,
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes.
My shavin' razor's cold and it stings.

Yeah, I know it's supposed to be some sort of complimentary superlative, but it still strikes me as potentially unflattering.

Then again, I'm not sure about why the songbirds' behavior is consistent with their knowing "the score" (of a sporting match? of the music?), either. But I still like the song, so I should just turn off my analytical side and enjoy it.

Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin', (this is my message to you)

Singin' don't worry 'bout a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright

Good to have something to look forward to.

They gave a children's concert at UCLA when my daughter was waiting for a heart transplant there, but she was too sick to attend.

Yeah, and I'm seeing Barenaked Ladies in April! I've only gone to see a band live once before so these should be fun!

Aww, that's a shame. Their children's songs are great.

It's okay, flicky--there were other weird, wild, and wonderful experiences. But I do appreciate the high quality of their children's music, which is clearly a labor of love for them.
