I don't weep, do you?



There's a bluebird in my heart
That wants to get out but I'm too tough
I say: "Stay in there
I'm not going to let anybody see"
 

There's a bluebird in my heart
That wants to get out but I pour whisky
I take a cigarette so the whores
The bartenders, the grocery clerks
Never know that he is in there
 

There's a bluebird in my heart
That wants to get out but I'm too tough
I say: "Stay down
Do you wanna mess me up?
Do you wanna screw up all of my works?"
 

There's a bluebird in my heart
That wants to get out but I'm too clever
I only let him out at night sometimes
When everybody sleeps
I say: "I know that you're there
Don't be so sad, " that's what I said
 

Then I put him back but he's always singing
I don't let him die and we sleep together
Like that with our secret pact
It's nice enough to make a little man weep
But I don't weep, do you?
