Strange Bird - Jimmy Buffett

Strange Bird
------------
by Jimmy Buffett and Jay Oliver

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
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 claim him
If you can't see him you can't name him
Stay on the ground or he will shoot you down
Wings on his heart, he's a strange bird

His only home is in the skies
Slicing throught the cloudy pie
Above the whole carribean
Moves the swift amphibian

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

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