LOOKS AREN'T EVERYTHING

A PAIR OF PRETTY BLUE JAYS,
SITTING IN A BALSA TREE,
THEY'VE COME TO EAT THE BERRIES
BUT, THEY'RE AS SASSY AS CAN BE

NO OTHER BIRDS DARE  COME THERE
THEY WOULD REALLY HAVE TO FIGHT
THE SASSY JAYS CALL IT THEIR HOME
FEASTING ON THE BERRIES IS THEIR RIGHT.

THE OTHER BIRDS ALL SEEM TO KNOW
THE JAYS HAVE SQUATTERS RIGHTS,
THEY'LL HAVE TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER SPOT
TO GET THEIR LITTLE SNACK BITES.

THE JAYS ARE REALLY QUITE BEAUTIFUL,
I HAVE TO AGREE WITH THAT
BUT THEY HAVE A TEMPER LIKE NO OTHER
IN THE BIRD KINGDOM--THEY REALLY ARE A BRAT!!
