Zeus became a father in the guise of a swan
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
You gotta watch them big birds 'cause one might be a man
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so

And in far Germany lived a woman with poor sight
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
Who heard a tapping at her window one dark and fuzzy night
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so

It was a great big man with a couple of great big eyes
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
And all night long the feathers flew, you know I tell no lies
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so

Now she read the morning paper, and much to her surprise
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
It said her boyfriend was a great big bird with great big birdie eyes
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so

Oh a bird in the bush is much better than in the zoo
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
But somehow, this flightless bird, from the coop he flew
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so

And she pines for her lost lover, who left her in the lurch
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
One twin's in the cradle and one is on the perch
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so

There may not have ever been a man or Austrailian emu
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
But it makes a helluva story, so who cares if it is true
Ain't it so, boys and girls, ain't it so
