Birds in cages can sing, sing
But birds in cages cannot fly, fly
Open up the door
For danger and beauty, we fly side by side
Danger and beauty, we fly side by side

I had a rabbit who was so smart
She got out of her cage
And in her escape she was eaten by a neighbors’ dog
But that won’t be me
No, that can’t be me
For I would rather die and be free, free
Than to be a caged bird singing
Than to be a caged bird singing
Yes, I would rather die and be free, free
Than to be a caged bird singing
Than to be a caged bird singing
Open up the door please mister
Open up the door please mister
Yes
Fly side by side
Fly side by side
Fly side by side by side by side by side.
