Bird in the Hand

♥ Bird in the Hand

My mother taught me charity
And it's gotten me by
When taking gets hard
Give giving a try
I take all you've got
The good and the bad
You give me more
Than I ever had

And so it ain't easy
And so it ain't rosy
A pocket of posies
A bird in the hand
Everything I wanted
But can't understand

When hating gets hard
Give loving a try
All for my father
Who was just passing by
I'm searching for sisters
Where brothers are Cain
Or else they are Abel
Lying brutally slain
