Jud Strunk – The Biggest Parakeets In Town lyrics

Some folks I know keep looking
For rare old coins and stamps.
While others see what's cooking
In antique books and lamps.
Some hobbies are like slavery,
There's one too tough for words.
This girl has got an aviary,
And you should see her birds...

She's got chanticleers and dickey birds,
Intelligent and tricky birds,
That make the boys all want to hang around.
Her crow is black and shiny,
Her hummingbirds are tiny,
But she's got the biggest parakeets in town!

She's got cockatoos and bobolinks,
In royal blue and dusty pinks,
And you should see them hangin' upside down.
Oh, it's thrilling to behold her,
When she wings them past her shoulder,
'Cause she's got the biggest parakeets in town!

And every night
When she gets into bed,
She puts each one on a pillow.
Oh, they sound like Bing,
When they start to sing,
'Tweet willow, tweet willow, tweet willow.'

After holding them and petting them,
She gets a thrill in letting them,
Go swingin' from the ceiling to the ground.
Ask anyone who's seen 'em.
It's hard to choose between 'em.
'Cause she's got the biggest parakeets in town!

Imagine her in love one day,
As she tells her fiance, "Okay!"
On the day the wedding rolls around.
Although he loves the ground she stands on,
He can't wait to get his hands on,
The biggest parakeets in town.

Well, picture on their wedding night,
When hubby, dear, turns off the light,
And wakes in the mornin' with a frown...
As he goes to caress her,
He sees them on the dresser...
The biggest parakeets in town!
(She's really got 'em, boy! )
The biggest parakeets in town!
(They're enormous! )
