M.I.A. - Bird Song (Blaqstarr Remix) Lyrics

I'm a parrot
I'm robin this joint
Not a lyre bird
Sure ain't a vulture
Don't swallow that cause I make the culture
I'm not a lyre bird
Staying staying rich like an ostrich

Free up my love
Free up my love
Free up my love
Free up my love
Staying staying rich like an ostrich

Drop down get your eagle on
Like a falcon
Fly phenomena
Humming higher than a drone
Doves cry
Are you going home alone?
Squad flock
Migrate for the summer
Duck out for some hot weather
Birds of prey and I'm shaking off my feather
I believe like R. Kelly, we can fly
But toucan fly together
Staying staying rich like an ostrich

Free up my love
Free up my love
Free up my love
Free up my love
Staying staying rich like an ostrich

Now watch the sky, watch the sky
Keep watching
Wa-watch the sky, watch the sky
Keep watching
Wa-wa-watch the sky, watch the sky
Keep watching
Wa-watch the sky, watch the sky

Is that a crow on a crane?
Is that you or a plane?
Where's your chicken at?
I'm watching like a hawk
I need more birds!
Gully like a seagull
Gully like a seagull
I'm coo coo for you, let's talk

Free up my love
Free up my love
Free up my love
Free up my love
Staying staying rich like an ostrich

    Petra Novaković christ, that was embarrassing

  31. Classified Chappy

    Even though I starting to listen more of MIA ever since I first listen to her 2010 album she released when I first heard Born For Free song where that song was amazing, even though it seems she tried her little best to sing with the content she does in this album where I actually understand of why things annoyed her with the industry I think, the production in mostly every song is so amazing that I appreciate of the way she sounds and I just starting listening to it since I watch Fanta no's review of her new album

  67. Rivio


  68. Pitch Black

    background music stolen from a 1980s indian movie

  69. Deniz Burduroglu

    such a fresh taste in the beat

  70. Shabeen V

    New sound... MIA Killin it

  71. BrazCoolZ

    Where's the original version

  72. sahil xt

    I got headache with this background sound fuck you birds

  73. vanessa borja

    She's always been ahead of her time. Brilliant.

  74. Aamon Fire

    the Signature Track for a brand new "Don't Do Drugs!" Campaign isn't it ...

  75. anomalek

    It's interesting to read the overwhelmingly negative comments here. I think the original is fantastic and this blaqstarr remix is splendid and very true to the original. Diplo's version released today has overwhelming rave reviews in the comments and yet its AWFUL, really a generic butchery of this lovely, quirky thing.

  76. TheSuns ShiningGrace

    this song sounds spanish

  77. mESCALINe

    what the fuck is this shit ?

  78. scribblezgfx

    This song is stolen from Vinnie Paz - God Bless

  79. Cel nocturn

    I like the song..

  80. hxgh

    Background music stolen from Vinnie Paz - God Bless ..


    No one will ever know that's the sad thing


    the background music is a sample, since the artist buy the copyright, they can use it anyway they want. the black eyed peas used to do it a lot :)

    Vyas Pranar

    I know where both got the inspiration from - it was on youtube but now I'm having hard time locating it - and it's was an improvised version of some 1980's Indian song.

    Sammy Virk

    +Vyas Pranar what's the name of it?


    No, it is not it is sampled from this:
    Aanandha Kummi | Oru Kili Uruguthu Song | Ilaiyaraaja | Vairamuthu
    It's from a Tamil movie

    Vinnie Paz sampled the same source.

  81. Rosie Espinoza Ruiz

    I love it , it has really grown on me.

  82. I DON'T KNOW

    Diplo version this the best sorry

  83. umut kaplan

    Cibili cibili şak şak

  84. Chantal

    I like it :D

  85. Kitana Kojima

    Lol I like how people complain about this but prefer go off. Go off is awesome but it's one of those songs sort of designed for the masses as opposed to this which is more like her classic style. That and It's a remix of a pre existing song, calm down.

  86. Dz in China

    M.I.A. is THE Artist!! other ones are just fakes!!!

    Gustavo Delfino

    twigs tho

  87. 600Lotus

    i just wish the bird sound was toned down just a little. no hate. ill always love M.I.A. it seems loud or something? no hate


    sounds great on the headphones

  88. mm1996

    If you listen to this without expectations and actually give it a chance you'll like it. Stop whinging


    mm1996 And then I heard the Diplo mix

  89. dav

    prantice the art of fly, be free, free your mind, high

  90. Suasha W

    Ur actually 1000 000 baby

  91. lil duress

    This song is horrible! That lead sounds like a rabid chicken getting jerked off underwater.

    Kitana Kojima

    Did you listen to the lyrics or look at the song title at all? Of course it sounds like a fucking bird you dolt

  92. Brenden667

    "Oru kili Urugudhu" song. I liked Vinnie Paz's "God Bless" version a little better, but still like M.I.A.'s creations.

  93. Llanfabon

    That background birthday party horn is absolutely awful

  94. SelfishPinoy12

    Kill Bill Vol. 3 please. This sounds like something from Kill Bill <3
