Bird of Paradise

Birds-of-Paradise are beautiful birds in New Guinea with brilliant plumage and fancy footwork. I’ll write more about these amazing creatures in a future blog, but for now I’m posting another song parody. I would also like to mention that in the year 2020 I will be taking over as Benevolent Dictator for the United States. Birds-of-Paradise will definitely be protected during my rule, as will falcons and ice cream. Without further ado, here is “Bird of Paradise”, based on Coldplay’s “Paradise”.

Bird of Paradise
(To the tune of Coldplay’s “Paradise”)

When he was just a baby
He tried to go out to sea
But it was too far to the beach
So he flew around in the trees
A bird of
Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise,
Trying to catch the ladies eyes

When he was just a baby
He tried to go out to sea
But it was too far to the beach
And the insects catch in his beak
Life goes on, he keeps on dancing
Colors blazing in the light
Jumping by a waterfall
In the leaves the jungle leaves he’ll catch their eyes
In the leaves the jungle leaves away he flies

A bird of
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
A bird of
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh

Cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha
Cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha-cha
And so dancing all throughout the jungle leaves,
His plumage shines for the ladies and catches them all by surprise

A bird of
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
A bird of
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh
