"Big Bird" as written by and Kate/schneider Pierson....
There's a big bird over my house
Go away, go away
There's a big bird flying over my house
And it looks like it's decided to stay
It's making a mistake... a big mistake
Big bird
Big bird
Big bird
Big bird

[Chorus:]
I pinch myself
I think I'm not dreamng
I'm not
I hear screaming!
See'mon! Get it out now
Wants to use me to feather its nest
Now it wants the rest

It's swooping from the branch
It's swooping from the sky
Spreadin' its feathers
Cuttin' out-flying

There's a big gray bird flying over my house
What do you think I am?
I'm not a louse!

There's a big bird over my house
There's a big, big, big bird
Over my house

What's it doing?
What does it want?

[Chorus]

It's swooping from the branch
Swooping from the sky
Spreadin' its feathers
Cuttin' out-flying

There's a big gray bird circling
'Round my house
Circling 'round and 'round
Circling 'round my house

There's a big bird over my house
There's a big, big, big bird
Over my house

    General CommentThis is about (civilians) being under attack by bombers. Fred in fact said it was supposed to be about a nuclear bombing run, and not about the dude from Sesame Street. This was, after all, the Raygun era. While the B-52s were named for a beehive wig, I think it can be safely said that this is the B-52s' song about the B-52 Stratofortress.
