lyrics

I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head
I have to walk super carefully
Or else that little bird will be an omelette instead
I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head

Everybody asks me why I’m this way
I don’t know what to say
It’s not because I’m blue, not because I’m grey
It’s not because I’m sad, not because I’m gay

I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head
I have to walk super carefully
Or else that little bird will be an omelette instead
I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head

It’s not because someone was mean to me
It’s not because my shirt is as green as the sea
It’s not because I’m Larry, Moe, Curly, or Fred
It’s not because I’m a genius I got an egg on my head

I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head
I have to walk super carefully
Or else that little bird will be an omelette instead
I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head

It’s not because I’m messy, not because I’m neat
Not because I’m looking for a word that rhymes with paraclete
It’s not because I’m dull, not because I’m bright
Although it’s true I have trouble sleeping at night

I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head
I have to walk super carefully
Or else that little bird will be an omelette instead because
I’ve got a robin’s egg on my
I’ve got a robin’s egg on my
I’ve got a robin’s egg on my head
