XTC — I bought myself a liarbird (текст песни)
I bought myself a liarbird He came with free drinks just to blur The lies falling out like rain On an average English summer’s afternoon I bought myself a new notebook Sharpened my guitar and went to look If this biz was just as bongo as the liarbird made out All he would say Is ’’I can make you famous’’ All he would say All he would say ’’Just like a household name’’ is All he would say Methinks world is for you Made of what you believe If it’s false or if it’s true You can read it in your bible Or on the back of this record sleeve I bought myself a liarbird Things got more and more absurd It changed to a cuckoo And expanded filling up with all I gave I bought myself a big mistake He grew too greedy, bough will break And then we will find that liarbirds Are really flightless on their own All he would say Is ’’I can make you famous’’ All he would say All he would say ’’Just like a household name’’ is All he would say Methinks world is for you
