Open the window.. R. E. M. - Parakeet

you wake up in the morning
and fall out of your bed
mean cats eat parakeets
and this one's nearly dead.
you dearly wish the wind would shift
and greasy windows slide
open for the parakeet
who's colored bitter lime.

open the window
and lift into your dreams
lately, baby
you can barely breathe.

you wake up in the morning
to warm Pacific breeze
where mean cats chew on licorice
and cannot climb the trees.

open your window
and lift into a dream
baby, baby
baby starts to breathe
