Birds Of A Feather Lyrics

by Joe South

I remember back a long time ago, in the days of my childhood
In the evenin' when the sun was sinkin' low, walkin' in the wildwood
Skippin' & flippin' through the flowers, we'd go hand-in-hand
Lookin' back on all the happy hours, anyone one could understand
You & me, babe, sure 'nough got to be, babe

CHORUS:
Birds of a feather, na na na na na na na na
We should be together like
Birds of a feather, na na na na na na na na
Got to be together like birds of a feather

You & I didn't have a lot of friends, didn't have too much to say
So they never would let us join in all the games they used to play
Seems like it was only yesterday, all the thinkin's you & I
I remember what the kids used to say as we'd go strollin' by
You & me, babe, sure 'nough got to be, babe

(Chorus)

Time goes rollin' by, & they say that you & I
Must go our separate ways
But birds of a feather will always be together

Your folks didn't want me hangin' 'round, said that I was bad for you
So we'd meet on the other side of town, down a long dark avenue
But they can't keep the 2 of us apart long as you really love me
I got a feelin' way down in my heart, that's the way it's gonna be

(Repeat & fade):
Birds of a feather, na na na na na na na na
We should be together like
