Katie locked herself
Inside her room
Put on a dress
And sprayed perfume
But she's not going
Out tonight, no, no
Lit a cigarette
And poured a drink
Then Katie sat down
More to think
About her life and she
Turned on the radio

"I hope to God
That you take really
Good care of my pet bird,
'Cause he's the only one that cared."

Katie wrote a note
And kissed the page
Put some birdseed
In Polly's cage
Then she closed the
Window and
Let out a sigh

She shut the light
And sat down
On the floor
Took down her hair
And thought some more
Then she whispered
To her bird, "Goodbye."

When the cops
Arrived there
In the room,
The sight they saw
Was full of gloom
They took the gun
From Katie's hand
And covered her head
They found a note
With a lipstick stain
And on that page
Written real plain
Was a single line
In dark blue ink
From a ball-point pen
That said

"I hope to God
That you take really
Good care of my pet bird,
'Cause he's the only one that cared."
