    Lyrics

    Eyes to take you dancing
    Mouth to leave your wife
    Legs to run away with
    And you wonder why

    Heart that makes you bypass
    Every other girl
    Smile that keeps you grinning
    At the madness of this world

    But like the blackbird on the wire
    I will not take prey on you
    You wouldn't want me to
    For I'm too soft for such a thing

    And like the blackbird on the wire
    I just watch you by
    The tears I knew I'd cry
    Fall un-noticed down below

    Front to make you happy
    Back to make you weep
    Lips to keep you kissing
    Whilst everyone's asleep

    Tears to break a backbone
    Laughs to win a war
    And people come and ask me
    What I love you for

    But like the blackbird on the wire
    I will not take prey on you
    You wouldn't want me to
    For I'm too soft for such a thing

    And like the blackbird on the wire
    I just watch you by
    The tears I knew I'd cry
    Fall un-noticed down below

    And with a tongue built from quick silver
    And a character of steel
    They actually come and ask me
    How I feel

    But like the blackbird on the wire
    I will not take prey on you
    You wouldn't want me to
    For I'm too soft for such a thing

    And like the blackbird on the wire
    I just watch you by
    The tears I knew I'd cry
    Fall un-noticed down below
    Down below
    Down below
    Down below
