Little Bird
The White Stripes Lyrics


I got a little bird
I'm gonna take her home
Put her in a cage
And disconnect the phone

If you give me a look
I'm gonna get the book
I'm gonna preach the word
I want to preach to birds
As I walk the floor
Yeah this I know

When I get you home
This is how it goes
I got nothing to lose
I'll never let you go

Robyn


on Candy Cane Children

The meaning of this song is basically saying the older you get, the less fun Christmas becomes usually do to adulthood. The lines "don't you know your name?...", probably refers to the adults telling kids to grow up as if they're saying "Do you know how old you are? You're getting too old for this stuff." Probably why he put the lines "nobody knows how to talk to children". Also, he puts the lines "think again" after a thought of one of the kids thinking of wishing to participate in Christmas activities. As if they're thinking "Yeah I probably AM too old for this.." "364 more tears girl" the sadness of getting older. Not participating feels like a missed opportunity and causes even more sadness..
