      About "Pink Parakeet"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Pink Parakeet"

      Your pink parakeet still waits for you to free her
      So I've kept this cage closed tightly when I feed her
      Your room is locked up solid and the key's here 'round my neck
      Your soul and property I still protect

      No this world won't understand you or accept you
      You'll need someone just like me to hold the wolves at bay
      I love you like a sculptor loves his chistle and his stone
      How can you go with all the love I've shown

      I've invested many precious hours of training
      Your poise, your grace, your youthful face is fading
      And without me you will falter, and confuse and soon go blind
      I know what scares you there inside your mind

      Now without you to advise I'm feeling weaker
      This game's no fun to play without a teacher
      And without my guide and councel you will surely die alone
      I demand you back, look at the love I've shown

      Now I've never been unfaithful 'til this moment
      You've made me now investigate my life
      My scars and stitches shown, I've been stripped now to the bone
      Look what you've done with all the love I've shown

      Now what word, maybe somewhere will finally trip you?
      How cool of you to do this thing to me
      And I know you'll always fail, I always did
      But I hold no grudge or groan
      How could I now, with all the love I've shown
      With all the love I've shown
