Bird Words

A man whose wife nags him all day is henpecked
A man with a burden he can't shake has an albatross around his neck
And I think you should know
A person who admits a big mistake has got to eat crow
These are bird words!

Somebody with a big advantage is sitting in the catbird seat
A person who tattles on his friends is a stool pigeon, that person's indiscreet
And if you are a sitting duck
You're a defenseless target, if you're attacked you are out of luck
These are bird words!

Bird Words!
