Blue Jay, blue jay
where'd you hide my cash?
you came right in through my bedroom window
and you took it back to your stash
all that glitters is old and cold
but the daylight makes it flash
and what I call my heart and soul
another man calls it trash
but that's alright blue jay, it's passed

Blue jay, blue jay
shake the frost off of your wings
you can cry, but I can't turn winter into spring
I been walkin up and down, all over the town
tryin to find where it begins
and every single inch of road I walk
is road I don't wanna walk again
but that's alright blue jay, my friend

Blue jay, blue jay
fly through rain and snow
go and find me a piece of land
that you can't see from the road
You can paint your feathers black
and turn into a crow
be my thief, I'll be your mark
and noone has to know
bu that's alright blue jay, you'll know
