The Hamburg Bird-ler?

My eyes have seen the coming of the strangest peeping tom
He was trampling down my gardens, and a-digging up my lawn
He tapped upon the window pane, then disappeared at dawn
I hope that he stays gone!

Mein Gott, I thought I was delirious!
Mein Gott, it really was mysterious;
Was it a bird? ( I have my doubts) or a naked man about?
I'm gonna call the cops!


They say it was an emu, and that I am seeing things
I can tell a naked chest from a feathered pair of wings!
And I'd surely spot a beak - when not distracted by other things
I hope that he stays gone!

chorus

I could feel his eyes upon me as he pressed against the pane
I think that I may ask him in if he should come again
Perhaps I should buy birdseed if the truth is what they claim?
I can't believe he's gone!
