Story

One morning I awoke to find a bear had once again knocked down my bird feeder. It was my fault, I left it up for too long. It is kind of exciting and scary all at once to know a black bear has been that close to your house. Since then, I have been much more careful and taken in my bird feeders when I know the bears are around.

Lyrics

Big Bags of Birdseed

We got big bags of birdseed, everything a bird needs

All the little chickadees, they ain’t got a care

The cardinals and the blue jays think they’re in Niravana

Not thinking of that day when they’ll have to share

We got a bright blue birdfeeder, nothing could be neater

A birdbath with a heater, a four-star restaurant

 On Sunday it’s the best, by Monday it’s a mess

Looks like we had a guest and she gets what she wants

 

She wakes up from a long nap, she hasn’t eaten in eight weeks

Strolls up to the feeder and says ‘That looks good to me!’

After a long winter she can’t pass up a free dinner

Now she’s a little less thinner Filled up with our birdseed

 

She wakes up from a long nap, she hasn’t eaten in eight weeks

Strolls up to the feeder and says ‘That looks good to me!’

After a long winter she can’t pass up a free dinner

Now she’s a little less thinner Filled up with our birdseed

 

We got big bags of birdseed, everything a bird needs

All the little chickadees got so much to say

We got big bags of birdseed, might as well be bear feed

Momma bear takes what she needs and then she’s on her way
