i saw a bird carrying a small rock around
he flew from the tree right back to the ground
so i got closer and he didn't want to move
and then i noticed that he was carrying the moon

little bird, please don't drop the moon
it's supposed to stay in the sky like a little white balloon
we know we need it, but we don't know just how soon
so little bird, please don't drop the moon

another bird, flew down to the floor
in this one's beak was something different than before
it seemed so small from far away, not anymore
he was holding planet earth, from the oceans to the shore

little bird, please don't drop the earth
it's mostly beauty here with a little bit of hurt
we are so young, we've only just had our rebirth
so little bird, please don't drop the earth

and yet another bird came flying to my feet
he looked unhappy, but still had something in his beak
it was the sun which the bird began to eat
then he exploded 'cause the sun is a really really really really hot ball of gas

little birds, these things belong in space
you've had your fun but put everything back in it's place
the world is changing which we just have to embrace
so little birds, put these things back into space
