Bird On A Wire by Neville Brothers

Like a bird on the wire, like a drunk in a (1)________________ choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Like a (2)________ on a hook, like a (3)________________ in a midnight choir
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.
If I, if I have been untrue, I hope that you can just let it go by

If I, if I (4)________ been untrue, I hope you know it was never to you.
Like a bird – free
Like a baby, stillborn, like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.
But I (5)__________ by this song and by all (6)________ I (7)________ done wrong
I (8)________ make it all up to thee.

Don’t cry no more – Don´t cry … Like a (9)________ – free . . .
