I'll never know what you'll find
When you open up your letter box tomorrow
'Cause a little bird never tells me anything I want to know
She's my best friend, she's a sparrow
And I'll never never know what you never never never wanna know
When you know what you are ohh

If I had a pair of eyes on the back of my head for each time
You forgot to take out all the things
You forgot to talk about when you took a bite out of my spine
I would have a lot of eyes on the other side, wouldn't I?
Wouldn't that just be fine?

Too late or soon to make noise about love
And there's no time for sorrow
Run around in the rain
With a hole in the brain till tomorrow

I'll never know what you'll find
When you open up your letter box tomorrow
'Cause a little bird never tells me anything I want to know
She's my best friend, she's a sparrow
And I'll never never know what you never never never wanna know
When you know what you are ohh
