about

The Californian Bush Jay has been observed by scientists to give “funerals” for other birds – gathering, and giving a special call, known as a “scold” - regardless of species.

lyrics

Said the Jay, he was my brother,
Though we had feathers of a different colour
Though his land was different from my own,
And from different eggs we had grown
Still, he was my brother,
And we mourn him just the same

Chorus
Once we dreamed of wings, the lightest secrets of flying things
Now earth holds us down, and we close our eyes
But just as all who fly, with wings unclipped they should see the sky
I will let the tears roll, for all who fall

Said the Jay, we'll sing the song
Of all his loves and his battles, his whole life long
All the air he held beneath his wing,
All the joy he did bring
We'll sing his song,
And we'll mourn him just the same

Chorus

Said the Jay, hear me scold,
To bring all our kind to the memory of his soul,
A stranger, or friend, you have never known
From a distant land he may have flown
Still, hear me scold
For we'll mourn him just the same

Chorus
