Listen

The bluebird's got a song,

if you can listen, listen.

The bluebird's got a song, if you can hear.

It's a hard-working cry

because he's seen a lot of sky.

Don't you want to lend an ear?

He can tell you how high you might have to fly

to see beyond the clouds men put in your way --

the difference between what they do

and what they say.

The subway's got a song,

if you can listen, listen.

The subway's got a song, if you can hear.

It's a hard-working sound

coming from under the ground.

Don't you want to lend an ear?

It can tell you how low you might have to go

to understand the sadness in the hearts of men

that makes them search for the light

and that moves their hands.

Me, I've got a song,

if you can listen, listen.

Me, I've got a song, if you can hear.

It's a hard-working thing

as it comes across the strings.

Don't you want to lend an ear?

I can tell you how long you might have to run

your race against pretenders who will lie and cheat

before you can take home the prize

that you earned indeed.
