"Earlybird" as written by Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon....
Early in the morning
About the break of day
The earlybird is working
So his life don't fade away
Spends his life denying that
He's got no time for flying
In the breeze
High up on his own, the eagle flies alone
And he is free

Earlybird is scratching though
The going's getting tough
Time is passing by him and he just
Can't get enough

He'll tell you all is well when
All is really going wrong
The earlybird will wake one day
And find his life is gone
You know I like to lay in bed
And sleep out in the sun
Reading books and playing crazy music
Just for fun

You know it makes feel so fine
And puts my mind at ease to
Know that I don't harm a soul
In doing what I please

Any old day you say,
Ain't gonna fade away
Any old day you say,
Ain't gonna fade away

    General CommentIt's a song about "not working 9 to 5" (quote from Bernie Leadon)

    And what the hell is THE EAGLES? The band is called Eagles, you numbnuts.

    General CommentThis is the worst Eagles song ever. It is painful to listen to because it is so bad.

    General CommentWhat the...
    PeglegPete, thank you for proving your ignorance.
    This song is pure awesome.
    Wicked intro, wicked banjo, great guitar riff, cool solo. Every time I listen to it its just keep getting better and better.
