Once we found a robin
In our backyard
It was already dead
But we were so sure
That things weren't gone too far

So we prayed to God above
That He'd bring it back to us
And we put it in a jar
And waited
and waited

But mama made us bury it
Mama made us bury it
In the backyard

I wished to be just like my best friend
She was the brightest star in the room
Yeah but we didn't know what we had

With the world pressing in
On her backyard
She fell in backwards
She fell in backwards

With the world pressing in
On her backyard
She fell in backwards

We prayed to God above
That He'd bring her back to us
So we put her in a box
We put her in a box
And waited
For something to happen
But nothing happened

Mama made me bury her
Mama made me bury her
Mama made me bury her
in the backyard
