Do You Know Why the Caged Bird S
"Do you know why the caged bird sings?
You'd only know if you'd been there too,
Locked up in a box,
No safe guard from your thoughts
I've never known a cage that can lock down your mind,
So sometimes she sings just to pass the time.
These songs never sounded so sweet before,
Nothing but loneliness,
Happiness no more.
Do you know why the caged bird sings?
To taste the freedom it's sweet song brings.
When you're stripped of all you have nothing to loose,
So the caged bird sings because all she has left are her tunes."
