"Birds And The Bees" as written by Greg Kurstin and Inara George....
Where, oh, where does the water come from the mountain
Come from the sea
Search between the ankles, rocks in the rivers
Bring them to me

Where, oh, where does the fire keep all the fever
More then I need
Sadness turns up to gladness when everything's burning
You know what I mean

Get into the car to make the light to go faster
Go slow to make the light
Don't take shit, crucify it, to breath in, to breath out, to kick a habit
Give it all you've got to do it right, to get it wrong
To get it high, to start another day like yesterday
To start another day like yesterday

Why, oh, why do the birds do all the flying
It could be me
Taking everything silent, the weather is warmer
Good place to be

Why, oh, why do the bees need a bee keeper
Let them alone
Taking all of their honey isn't it greedy
Living them warm

Get into the car to make the light to go faster
Go slow to make the light
Don't take shit, crucify it, to breath in, to breath out, to kick a habit
Give it all you've got to do it right, to get it wrong
To get it high, to start another day like yesterday
To start another day like yesterday

Where, oh, where, why oh, why oh, why, where oh, where
Why, oh, why, oh, where oh, where oh, why oh, why oh, why
Where oh, where, why oh, why

Get into the car to make the light to go faster
Go slow to make the light
Don't take shit, crucify it, to breath in, to breath out, to kick a habit
Give it all you've got to do it right, to get it wrong
To get it high, to start another day like yesterday
To start another day like yesterday, why, oh, why

    this song sounds really relaxing. my favorite lyric from The Bird and the Bee is probably
    "Don't take shh, crucify it
    To breathe in, to breathe out". Let go of any negativity, stress, and general crap. otherwise, you won't be able to breathe. If that makes sense.

    My InterpretationI always thought the song was about getting high after stressful work days and being stuck in a rut, and your mind wandering on nonsense things the way it does when you're high.

    "Sadness turns up to gladness when everything's burning... know what I meeeeaannnnn~~~~?"

    but then, those work rut days that we all have:

    "Get into the car to make the light.
    Go fast. Go slow to make the (yellow) light. (morning commute)
    Don't take sh-t, crucify it. (work politics)
    Air. Breathe in, breathe out. To kick a habit. (smoking on break)
    Give it all you got to do it right
    to get it wrong.
    to get caught. (my boss sucks too)

    To start another day like yesterday. :(
    To start another day like yesterday..... T_T

    But once she's off work... "whyyy... do all the birds... do all the flying? Maybe it's meeee~~~~"
