BIRD OF PREY (original version)

This version has slightly different lyrics than the later "Salisbury version".

I can see that look that says beware
Try to move in closer if you dare
So I will sit and play my waiting game
And for a while I know
She’ll do the same
Oh no!

Watches like an eagle from its tree
And like a bird of prey she captures me
But I am older and more wise than you
Bird of prey, straight into me you flew
Oh no!

Now every time I tried to set her free
I’m glad to say she comes
Right back to me
But if I knew she didn’t want to stay
I wouldn’t try to keep that
Lovely bird of prey
