BLIND BLACK BIRD
There is a bird
Lives on my street
He is blind
That bird can’t see
Have you heard bout the blind black bird?
He smokes cigars
Gots purple shades
A cowboy hat
And a red-tipped cane
Have you heard about the blind black bird?
He can’t see me
He can’t see you
But he love
When I sing the blues
Have you heard about the blind black bird
I said now have you heard about the blind black bird
