Everybody do the dodo
Everybody do the dodo
Everybody do the dodo
Everybody do the dodo
Everybody do the dodo
Everybody do
Everyone's gotta do the dodo

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

I can't imagine the day when things
Have actually faded away
But the day I may not be able to pay
My way could be today

It's not that I don't care, just that I'm way too
Caught up with breathing air
To grieve for the trees and air
Or how breathable air is

You go first, I'll follow suit
Make the mistakes I'd probably make
I'm right behind you but don't expect me
To ride like it's a race

'Cause you'll be back there picking scraps
While I'm Mr. Mug, do gooding around
And I've lost my rank and base
I've got to manage my little space

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

I'm not a stereotypical give you what I want
When I want it with a big cherry on it
Just another brother trying to love my son and mother
Providing for my wife is the vibe I'm on in life
I might well starve, that's what would happen
If I started off this march

It's not my world but I'm in it to win it
Put it in the bin if you push it, listen
Let's all start at the same point
Following rules equally losing

Tell me if it does, I wish it be true
But never gonna happen, we are not equal
For the kids let's make the rules
But I saw the film and hated the sequel

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

Everybody do the dodo

You and me are family, pass the love round, then back to me
Two and three, that's the feeling
Scramble for the top, for the bottom of the ceiling
Conspiracy theories, we all hear these
We will seal the deal, we will seal the deal

If you don't know where you're going
Then any road will take you there
If you don't know where you're going
Then any road will take you there
If you don't know where you're going
Then any road will take you there
We do not know where we're going, any road

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

It's not earth that's in trouble
It's the people that live on it, no, no
Earth'll be here long after we've all gone
The way of the dodo

These are my wings, this is my beak
