Treasure Island

Caged Bird


I respect the person who struggled in life, kept their head on the goal
I respect the person who grew up with nothing and is now successful
You got to respect a person who has better judgement
Everyone need something to aspire to, a life adjustment
no matter who you are, Don't forget where you came from
nobody living is perfect, sometimes you might succumb
no matter how beaten you are, remember, life is king
you were once a caged bird with broken wings
who has found a new tune in life to sing

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
