One night a robin woke up at 3AM
and sang through the 5 o’clock dawn
Chirp chirp

He might have been singing just for fun but then
there might have been something going on
like that lady in the next tree
with one eye open and looking to build a nest
She could feel the warmth of a spring day coming
was too excited to need any rest

Meanwhile back with the chirps
sure enough this robin had this heart set
on building a family with the lady in the next tree

He thought to himself
I must sniff this blossom before it fades
I must seize the worm before it is gone
And yet i must not be too bold

I must let my heart speak its own truth
and pray that the lady will love what she hears

I must sing
And sing he did

Blue skies
and plenty of bugs
for me and you

Lullabies
for the babies of course 
and just we two

So lets fly ’round the neighborhood
and dance ’til the sun comes up
hear the music of the sweet spring morning
and see if we’re in love

Well fly around they did
and one thing led to another
and love and lust often being the same thing
pretty soon they were watching over
some little blue eggs in a nest

Not too much later those little blue eggs
got a little too small for the little birds inside
and the eggs cracked open and the little birds stepped out
And then there was a whole family of robins in that nest

Now the little birds were always hungry of course
and the mother and father were always busy gathering food
If one of then woke up at 3AM it wasn’t to sing
It was to break up some cricket carcasses and
stuff them down the throats of those young birds

Eat they said eat and you’ll grow up big and strong
Swallow it down now that’s it
As long as you can put
some fat on your bones
nothing can go very wrong

Soon the little robins learned to fly
and flew off on their own
Then the mother and father quickly noticed
it was boring hanging around home

So what those birds did then was
they left
one at at time

Robins aren’t particularly faithful to one another after nesting
Each just goes his or her own way until it’s springtime again
time to find another mate and time to maybe do
some singing in the middle of the night and
then see this whole story repeat itself

One night a robin woke up at 3AM
and sang through the 5 o’clock dawn
Chirp chirp

He might have been singing just for fun but then
there might have been something going on
