The song of one-foot budgie

One-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To sit on his perch all day.
One-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To relax in an avian way.
He’s got two feet,
He can climb and tweet,
Chew on his toys and play;
But one-foot budgie only needs one foot
To sit on his perch all day.

He wakes up every morning,
Stretches out his wings.
Stuffs his face with bird seed,
Sometimes even sings.
If the sun is out, he’ll jump about,
And use his time exploring.
But if it’s gray, he’ll spend the day
Being rather boring.

[Chorus:]
‘Cause one-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To sit on his perch all day.
One-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To relax in an avian way.
He’s got two feet,
He can climb and tweet,
Chew on his toys and play;
But one-foot budgie only needs one foot
To sit on his perch all day.

Sitting on his play gym,
He preens his fluffy rump.
It’s surely been ten minutes,
Time to take a dump.
He’s got a beak, knows how to shriek,
No training is required;
He may not talk, but he sure could squawk,
Except that he’s too tired…

[Chorus:]
So one-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To sit on his perch all day.
One-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To relax in an avian way.
He’s got two feet,
He can climb and tweet,
Chew on his toys and play;
But one-foot budgie only needs one foot
To sit on his perch all day.

His disco ball is very small,
But still extremely shiny.
Although he is a parrot,
He’s really rather tiny.
He’ll gladly stand upon your hand,
As long as you’ve got millet;
But he’s got a crop that just won’t stop,
So you’d best be sure you fill it…

[Chorus:]
So that one-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To sit on his perch all day.
One-foot budgie only needs one foot,
To relax in an avian way.
He’s got two feet,
He can climb and tweet,
Chew on his toys and play;
But one-foot budgie only needs one foot
To sit on his perch all day.
