They say when you die you're supposed to look toward the light
So these birds heard those words and they took that good advice
Then they got up to the light and quickly climbed up to the top
They were fraught when they didn't find the salvation they sought.
But these peeps are optimistic. They saw the light was dim
And realized lights can sometimes stop working now and then
So they kept their spirits high and just enjoyed the exercise
With a smile and a laugh they felt grateful to be alive.
