SPARROW

I went into the garden and what did I see?
I saw you were a little boy, pointing your pistol at me.

I said,
"What are you doing? Why'd you look so mean?
My god, you were fine last night, when you got into bed next to me."

You said,
"Little Sparrow, Little Sparrow, precious fragile little thing,
I'm gonna put you in a bell jar, feed you crackers, make you sing.
You're so goddam pretty, you're so goddam sweet,
You're so goddam saccharine. Hell, you grate my teeth.
Everything's so tidy. You're so easy to scare.
You're nothing but a little girl in your Momma's underwear.
So Little Sparrow, Little Sparrow, precious fragile little thing,
I'm gonna pull you out the air dear, break your beak and snap your wings.
Little Sparrow, Little Sparrow, precious fragile little thing,
I'm gonna put you in a bell jar, feed you crackers, make you sing."
