    Green Finch and Linnet bird
    Nightingale, Blackbird
    How is it you sing?

    How can you jubilate
    Sitting in cages
    Never taking wing?

    Outside the sky waits
    Beckoning, beckoning
    Just beyond the bars

    How can you remain
    Staring at the rain
    Maddened by the stars?

    How is it you sing anything?
    How is it you sing?

    Green Finch and Linnet bird
    Nightingale, Blackbird
    How is it you sing?

    Whence comes this melody
    Constantly floating?
    Is it rejoicing or merely a loaming?

    Are you discussing?
    Or fussing
    Or simply dreaming?

    Are you crowing?
    Are you screaming?
    Ring dove and Robinet

    Is it for wages?
    Singing to be sold?
    Have you decided it's safer in cages
    Singing when you're told?

    My cage has many rooms
    Damask and dark
    Nothing there sings
    Not even my Lark

    Larks never will, you know
    When they're captive
    Teach me to be more adaptive

    Green Finch and Linnet bird
    Nightingale, Blackbird
    Teach me how to sing

    If I cannot fly
    Let me sing
