about

The melody and chords for this song were borrowed (without permission) from the wonderful band "Your Heart Breaks".

lyrics

I thought you were a big jerk
Turns out you're just sad about your dead wife
You said you want to end your life
I thought, if you do that what will the birds eat?
What will the squirrels eat?
'Cause you've had squirrels flocking to your feet
Since you were 16
Asked your mom for bread
She gave you the crust of her sandwich
And you fed it to them
And you've had birds chirping on the street
Since you were 16
Took the popcorn off the christmas tree
'Cause you said they were hungry
You put it in their tummies
So maybe you could just let the birds eat
Maybe you could just let the squirrels eat
And I promise...
You'll have birds chirping on the street
When you're 80
Pick up that bag of seeds
You'll still be old and grumpy
And they'll still be hungry
And you'll have squirrels flocking to your feet
When you're 90
Pick up that Wonderbread
Throw it from the park bench
'Til you're 100
So maybe you could just let the squirrels eat
Maybe you could just let yourself live?
