Peaceful is the bird in the morning
Grateful is the fox in the evening
Peaceful is the bird in the morning
Grateful is the fox in the evening
Gotta wake 'em up
Gotta wake that bird up
Gotta wake 'em up
Gotta wake that fox up
Gotta wake 'em up
Gotta wake that bird up
Gotta wake 'em up
Gotta wake that fox up

Bird gonna cook the eggs
Fox gonna fry the bacon
Bird gonna squeeze the juice
Fox gonna pour that tea
Bird don't forget your briefcase
Fox don't forget your keys
And bird don't forget to drop your little baby bird-fox at school

Tuesdays and Thuirsdays he goes to bird school
Monday Wednesday Fridays he goes to fox school
Sometimes he goes to bird church
Sometimes he goes to fox church
Sometimes he speaks the bird bird
Sometimes he speaks the fox fox

Just admit it to me
You know that our little son
You know he's more of a bird
You know he's more of a bird

Shut your mouth
You know he's more fox than bird
Always has been always will be

Shut your lying mouth
Don't you know he's a bird
(He's a fox)
Don't you know our son's a bird
(He's a fox)
He's a bird
(He's a fox)
He's a bird
(He's a fox)

Look at us
We're fighting once again
Said we'd never do this in front of him
Well we may have our differences
And we may disagree
But there's something more important here than you or me
We gotta raise this kid
And we gotta raise him right
They say that we can't do it
Let's prove them wrong tonight
(Gonna raise him right)
We'll show them all
(Gonna raise this fox-bird right)
We'll show them all
(Gonna raise him right)
We'll show them all
(Gonna raise this kid right)
We'll show them all

Peaceful is the bird in the morning
Grateful is the fox in the evening
Gotta work it out
