Strange Bird Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Off To See The Lizard

Strange Bird
By: Jimmy Buffett, Jay Oliver
1989
Half fast and seldom seen
He don't blip the radar screen
On the deck below the dune
Under the commander's moon
Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low not like all of the rest
God only knows where the strange bird goes when he's flying

Everybody's trying to find him
But they don't know where to start
The ornithologist lady says that he has wings on his heart

Chorus:
Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low not like all of the rest
If you can't catch him you can't name him
If you can't see him you can't claim him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down
Wings on his heart, he's a strange bird

Frequent flyer, seldom seen
High above the Caribbean
In my day I've met a few but he's the strangest bird that's true

Chorus:
Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low not like all of the rest
If you can't catch him you can't name him
If you can't see him you can't claim him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down
Wings on his heart, he's a strange bird

But he's in love with the lady of the waters
And she lives somewhere up around Cheauxvan
He's gonna circle high above her runway of love
Until she gives him her permission to land

Chorus:
Strange bird from a different nest
Flying low not like all of the rest
If you can't catch him you can't name him
If you can't see him you can't claim him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down
Wings on his heart, he's a strange bird
Watch out girl, he's a strange bird

Strange bird flying low
'Cross the Gulf of Mexico
Strange bird not like all the rest
Watch out girl he's a strange bird
Shoot you down, he's a strange bird
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a strange bird
