lyrics

Babe I love your windowsill
You asked me here, I think I will
So settle in and cock your ear
Because this birdie likes to sing you
The songs you like to hear

But babe you better behave
Watch your mouth and wash your face
Lock up the dog and turn off your phone
And don’t think you can take me home

‘Cause I’m a free bird
I’m a free little bird
So set your net aside
And lock your cage up in the closet
Not gonna say what you want me to
Play what you want me to
Stay where you want me to
Fly — when you see just how high I go
You’ll surely know
I don’t just sing for you.

You can beg and plead and say you need me
But you don’t.
And if my independence vexes you
I’m sure you’ll cope.
Find some other hen to hold.

So babe I’ll decorate your windowsill
Enjoy and keep a picture if you will
But in a stitch I got to fly
And babe I think that you know you know why

‘Cause I’m a free bird
I’m a free little bird
So set your net aside
And lock your cage up in the closet
Not gonna say what you want me to
Play what you want me to
Rhyme when you want me to
Fly — when you see just how high I go
You’ll finally know
There’s things I won’t sing — even for you.

about

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
