Not the Doors Piano Bird
What is the word, I need to know?
What is the word, tell it to me slow?
I need to hear that slow sweet word,
That tells the tale of the piano bird.
I flew so high that I lost my way.
Into a sky as blue as your eyes,
I touched the clouds all soft and grey
And rested till the sun did rise.
Piano bird, he rattled those keys
Piano bird, he pecked away
a little Jelly Roll Blues if you please,
could swim in the sounds till the end of my days.
What is the word, I surely need to know?
What is that word, sing it sweet and slow.
My soul needs to hear what my heart has heard,
The comforting chords of the piano bird.
I fell back to earth on giant wings,
Landed in a field of new-mown hay.
Blessed by the sun, the warmth it brings,
And there I slept till the end of my days.
What is the word I have always known?
A younger lad, and a man full grown?
The joy that it brings, that magical word,
The song that sings from the piano bird,
The song that sings from the piano bird.
