"The Pimp And The Sparrow" as written by and Eric Elbogen....
He timed it all just right
For the sparrows first flight.
But I said don't fly down there,
The world is such a scare.

But he flew down anyway
And got chomped like easy prey.
You know, he should have listened fast,
That thought is just the past.

At least I told him anyway.
Hey, hey.

Well, out on Avenue A
The pimp flexed his gold chains,
But I pointed out the rain,
That it would rust them all the same.

And like clock work did they rust
And then he died of tetanus.
So I took his girl for mine,
And for him she does not pine.

At least I told him, anyway
Hey hey.

Two do do do.
Do do do.
Do do do do do do do, do do.

Well, the one thing that I wish
Is that the sparrow meet the pimp
Oh yeah, in heaven in the sky.
Of a drop that cold my ties.

And their stories they will swap
And in horror they will stop for
When they learn they both knew me
And I offered them the plea.

At least I told them anyway.
Hey hey.

Do do do do do.
Do do do. Dododododo. adodo.
Dododododo. Dododo.

    General CommentI think it's about two totally different people from two sides of the spectrum (the sparrow and the pimp) and how when they're humbled they kind of find a common ground... The sparrow is really innocent and naive and the pimp is kind of arrogant
