lyrics

I used to like you because you liked birds.
I used to like you because you liked birds!
And you knew all their names:
Red-finch, blue-tit, black-backed woodpecker,
Catbird, killdeer, rock dove, turkey vulture,
Waxwing, chickadee, yellow-bellied sapsucker..
But do you know where you can shove your ornithology my love?

I used to like you because you liked trees.
I used to like you because you liked trees!
And you knew all their species,
And you knew all their sub-species

But do you know where you can shove your botany my love?


Everyone thinks they're so special
Everyone thinks they're so wonderful

Everyone thinks they're the first person who thinks that trains are romantic
Everyone cries when they first stick their noses into the Atlantic

Everyone, everyone
Thinks they're the only one
