Birds Of A Feather Lyrics

    It's easy sometimes when you just coast along
    But like it or not something always seems to go wrong
    Sometimes people build you up just so they can knock you down
    Sometimes they will have you there 'cause they need someone around

    Perhaps you'll receive invitations for tea
    Perhaps you'll laugh and make them all smile
    Or maybe you'll join them 'cause it had to be
    Perhaps you'll forget you forgot for awhile

    Birds of a feather are flocking outside
    Like whippets they dance in a curly-queue dance
    Of pulses and ringing and campfire chants
    Of ritual drumming although at first glance
    You thought you could run but you won't take a chance

    It's not an experience if they can't bring someone along
    They hang on emotions they bottle inside
    They peck at the ground
    And strut out of stride
