    The Secret Language of Birds

    This sparkling wine is all but empty.
    Too late for trains and no taxis.
    I know the feeling. seems all too contrived.
    There was no master plan but the fact is:
    You must stay with me and learn the secret language of birds.

    A tentative dawn about to be breaking
    On a rousseau garden with monkeys in hiding.
    The truth of the matter, yet to be spoken
    In words on which everything, everythings riding.
    Now stay with me and learn the secret language of birds.

    Circled by swallows
    In a world for the weary.
    Courted by warblers; wicked and eloquent trilling.

    Lie in the stillness, window cracked open.
    Extended moments, hours for the taking.
    Careless hair on the pillow, a bold brushstroke.
    Painted verse with a chorus in waiting.
    Stay with me and learn the secret language of birds.

    _____________

    The exam question for today is this: What is the secret language of birds?

    Hey Soggy,

    Is that a thinly veiled admission that you don't know?

    It's mine and mine alone to lose...and don't you forget it. :badgrin:

    But I didn't intend for this thread to be the typical flame digression. Can you tell me what is the secret language of birds?

    Born Under A Bad Sign
    by Booker T. Jones / William Bell

    Born under a bad sign
    I been down since I begin to crawl
    If it wasn't for bad luck,
    I wouldn't have no luck at all

    Hard luck and trouble is my only friend
    I been on my own ever since I was ten
    Born under a bad sign
    I been down since I begin to crawl
    If it wasn't for bad luck,
    I wouldn't have no luck at all

    I can't read, haven't learned how to write
    My whole life has been one big fight
    Born under a bad sign
    I been down since I begin to crawl
    If it wasn't for bad luck,
    I wouldn't have no luck at all

    I ain't lyin'
    If it wasn't for bad luck
    I wouldn't have no kind-a luck
    If it wasn't for real bad luck,
    I wouldn't have no luck at all

    Wine and women is all I crave
    A big legged woman is
    gonna carry me to my grave
    Born under a bad sign
    I been down since I begin to crawl
    If it wasn't for bad luck,
    I wouldn't have no luck at all

    Yeah, my bad luck boy
    Been havin' bad luck all of my days, yes
