Sung to the tune of "I Enjoy Being a Girl" Just for fun...


    I'm a 'tiel and by me that's only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is feathery,
That I walk with a sweet and waddling gait
With my tail kind of swishy and swervey.

I adore being fluffed up and whistlin'
When my slave gets me out of my cage.
Out I go with my Pepper or Pippin,
Like a pretty bird fit for the stage!
refrain:
When all of my toys are brand new
And I get popcorn for my meal,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a 'tiel!

When my slave says I'm cute and funny,
And I'm too beautiful to be real,
I just lap it up like honey,
I enjoy being a 'tiel!

I flip when my slave gives me sunflowers,
I scream for my pasta plate,
I play on my boiing for hours,
With a spaghetti sauce all over my face!

I'm strictly a pretty bird birdie
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a besotted owner
Who'll enjoy being a slave
Having a 'tiel like me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
