                THE BUDGIE SONG
Words and Music by John Williamson
© 1986 EMUSIC PTY LTD

(harmonica solo)
 F    C    F    C    F    C   DM  G7  C

[verse 1]
        C                              F
Well it cost me thirty bucks to fix my budgie,
         G7                           C
When the little blighter only cost me five.
                              F
The veterinary surgeon saw me coming,
      G7                               C
But I had to keep my feathered friend alive;

       AM                                  F
He was shaking on his perch, the kids were crying,
    AM                               F        
The family gathered round his little cage.
  AM                              F
I said I think it's time we got a new one,
       D7                          G7
That's when the family went into a rage.       

[verse 2]
        C                              F
Oh, the waiting room ponged like a rat house,
         G7                           C
With heartworms and lungworms and lice.
                              F
And a Persian had her eye on the shoebox,
         G7                           C
I suppose she thought our budgie might be nice.

       AM                                  F
Well the bird s**t on the veterinary surgeon,
       AM                                  F
I heard him say the dirty little chick.
       AM                                  F
Guess he wondered why I didn't use my brains
       D7                          G7
And hit him over the head with a brick.

[CHORUS]
   F                   C      
Oh antibiotics for his colour,
F                      C
Two drops a day on his beak.
     F                          C
Some powder on the nose for his feathers
    DM             G7          C
And clean out his cage twice a week.
 
(harmonica solo)
 F    C    F    C    F    C   DM  G7  C

[verse 3]
        C                              F
Well it cost me thirty bucks to fix my budgie
         G7                           C
When the little blighter only cost me five
                              F
And the bludger wakes me early in the morning,
         G7                           C
It's got me puzzled how he survives.

       AM                                  F
One night I'll feed him to the tom cat.
       AM                                  F
Instead of worrying about him when we go away.
       AM                                  F
No-one wants to feed a s**tty budgie,
       D7                          G7
When everyone's on holiday

(repeat CHORUS & harmonica solo)
