JOHN 1972: 'Another horror.'JOHN 1980: 'Another of my throwaways.'GEORGE 1987: 'I think it was Paul and me, or maybe John and me, playing (guitar) in harmony – quite a complicated little line that goes through the middle-eight.'PAUL 1995: 'One of my favorites on the Anthology is, 'And Your Bird Can Sing,' which is a nice song, but this take of it was one we couldn't use at the time.
John and I got a fit of the giggles while we were doing the double-track.
You couldn't have released it at the time.
But now you can.
Sounds great just hearing us lose it on a take.'
You tell me that you've got everything you want
And your bird can sing
But you don't get me, you don't get meYou say you've seen Seven Wonders and your bird is green
But you can't see me, you can't see meWhen your prized possessions start to weigh you down
Look in my direction, I'll be 'round, I'll be 'roundWhen your bird is broken will it bring you down
You may be awoken, I'll be 'round, I'll be 'roundYou tell me that you've heard every sound there is
And your bird can swing
But you can't hear me, you can't hear me
