Earlybird is a song written by Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner and recorded by the Eagles, featured on their self-titled debut album. The song incorporates a bird whistle intro, which are the sounds of actual birds chirping. Randy Meisner bought the bird whistle at a sound-effects library in London. Adding the chirping sounds was the decision of both Bernie Leadon, who also sings lead and plays banjo on the song, and their then-producer, Glyn Johns.

LyricsEdit

Early in the morning
about the break of day
the earlybird is working
so his life don't fade away
spends his life denying that
he's got no time for flying
in the breeze
High up on his own, the eagle flies alone
and he is free
Earlybird is scratching though
the going's getting tough
time is passing by him and he just
can't get enough
He'll tell you all is well when
all is really going wrong
the Earlybird will wake one day
and find his life is gone
You know I like to lay in bed
and sleep out in the sun
Reading books and playing crazy music
just for fun
You know it makes feel so fine
and puts my mind at ease to
know that I don't harm a soul
in doing what I please
aaahhhh, ahhhh , ahhhhh ahhh.....

Any old day you say,
ain't gonna fade away
Any old day you say,
ain't gonna fade away
Any old day you say,
ain't gonna fade away
Any old day you say,
ain't gonna fade away
Any old day you say,
ain't gonna fade away
