Lyrics:

TITTER WITH THE BLUE ROBIN (Dedicated to the memory of Robin Williams)

VERSE 1
Emerged from a robin blue egg,
so quiet and meek
Mother\\\'s attention, he had to beg
Learned to open his beak
The other members of the flock would jeer
Father away, gathering food
Had to socialize and conquer his fear
Real pluck, is what he\\\'d exude

VERSE 2
He learned to entertain and fly out front
Not second-rate, he\\\'s taking the lead
Was shy and quiet, now forceful and blunt
From the nest he is freed
And with practice he perfects the routine
Can\\\'t get tired, of flapping his wings
Humble, manic, and all in between
In a world full of tension, the jester is king

CHORUS
Showed us how we can laugh at our lives
Loudly so you can\\\'t hear the sobbing
Shows the soaring - but disguises the dives
We titter with the blue robin
When he\\\'s up front, they can\\\'t see him cry
Alone when he\\\'s leading the crowd
We applaud the bold takeoff from the sky
But miss the hard crash to the ground

VERSE 3
Mesmerized, the followers grew
His flock flourished and spread
Would be so rattled, if they ever knew
What swooped around in his head
But while flying, the euphoric rush
Distracts from unpleasant truths
You think some spirits could never be crushed
Now you witness the proof

CHORUS
Showed us how we can laugh at our lives
Loudly so you can\\\'t hear the sobbing
Shows the soaring - but disguises the dives
We titter with the blue robin
When he\\\'s up front, they can\\\'t see him cry
Alone when he\\\'s leading the crowd
We applaud the bold takeoff to the sky
But miss the hard crash to the ground
Unforgettable robin was kind
Talented, tortured and pure
A manic body with unfiltered mind.....

ENDING VERSE
He\\\'ll always be missed, his life was a gift
The world paused in its revolving
Would not compromise; he\\\'d just improvise
True giver was the blue robin.
The time that went by, we saw him defy
The gravity the rest just had to abide
Inside he was low, outside he burned bright
Didn\\\'t realize, it was the end of the flight
But on his behalf, we owe one more laugh.....

So titter for the blue robin.
[Exit]
