The Bird On My Head
David Seville Lyrics


I'm just sittin in a vacant lot with a bird sittin on my head
I'm just sittin in a vacant lot with a bird sittin on my head
Wicked, wicked, cruel, cruel world
Log on to kill this message.
What have you done to me?
I belong in someones arms

Wicked, wicked, cruel, cruel world
This is no kind of life
I should have a house and bed

Were just sittin in a vacant lot and we haven't got a dime
The bird and me, lonely as can be, were together all the time

Wicked, wicked, cruel, cruel world
What have you done to me?
I belong in someones arms

Wicked, wicked, cruel, cruel world
What I say is no lie
Weve been sittin here so long

I'm just sittin in a vacant lot
The things we want we haven't got need a tree and house and bed

Wicked, wicked, cruel, cruel world
What have you done to me?
And he belongs in a tree

Wicked, wicked, cruel, cruel world
This is no kind of life
And he should have him a wife

Wicked, wicked, cruel, cruel world
What have you done to me?
I belong in someones arms

Love it. I have a repress that is in rough shape. Need to find an original.

I honestly I’ve never heard this song in my life, and I’m 48 years old and a big Chipmunks fan. Now I feel like I missed a lot. 🤔
In fact the only reason I even noticed this song was I was looking up the dates for to see precise age of the Chipmunks. And remember there’s gaps in the 1958 to 1983 and again in 1990 to 2021.

The best Dave Seville song.

Grandpa played this on his phone for Immy, our 6 yr old granddaughter the other day.. She improvised a dance to it . With hand motions by the end of the third time. "Play it again, Grandpa!" And asked for him to play it AGAIN so she could dance it one more time before she went to bed. Well, it didn't calm her down to go to sleep. It ENERGIZED her. Grandpa can be great fun. Being a Heuer means that laughing and being silly 🤣 is just the best. Love, Grandma.

I think I first heard it on Dr. Demento, and was pleasantly surprised it existed. And stunned it wasn't a Chipmunk sng.

@Konnor Foxworth Except this was before the Chipmunks.

That, or Simon the Chipmunk is singing with Dave on this track, just like Alvin did “Witch Doctor” with him.
