Up Above The Sea (Vanderslice John)

The sun came up Up above the sea The streaming clouds Tore into my tranquility Out my window I could see A bird drop down On the branches of my apple tree Everyday the bluebird comes down And stares at me for hours Can't figure out if he brings me luck Or if he's trying to tear me down I bought a rifle With a Bushnell scope Knowing the answer would be To see if he's calm or frightful The sun rose up Over the sea I staked out and waited Like so many gunmen before me Everyday the bluebird comes down And stares at me for hours Can't figure out if he brings me luck Or if he's trying to tear me down He saw my gun, he stared Right into my eyes, I fired His body exploded And feathers fell all over my lawn
