    Will you take me home with you?
    I can't promise I'll be good
    No one has taught me how to act
    Or behave as a parrot "should".

    My first owner didn't treat me right
    He said that I was "bad"
    He never forgave me that first bite
    After that, he was always mad.

    He shoved me back into my cage
    And so I started to scream
    Then he hit me in a rage
    And my life became a bad dream

    So now I scream and yes, I bite
    I'm angry and misunderstood
    But please please take me home with you

    Love me and I'll be good
    Please let me come home with you
    And spend some time with me
    I can be sweet again I know
    Take me home, you'll see

    My next owner swore at me
    I learned to say things back
    So now my words are crude and rude
    Please cut me some slack
    If you let me come home with you
    I'll learn some nicer speech
    If you are kind and give me time
    I'll change my vulgar screech

    I'm really just a baby
    And so misunderstood
    Please let me come home with you
    I can learn to be good.

    My next owner just HAD to have me
    She thought I was "way cool"
    But now she doesn't have time for me
    She's busy with boys and school.

    That's why I began to pluck
    I'm not pretty any more
    I won't be much of an ornament
    If that's what you're looking for.

    I may never grow new feathers
    My chest may always be bare
    But my soul I know could heal itself
    If only someone would care.

    My last owner died and left me
    She said that she'd made plans
    But she never followed through on them
    And I've fallen into bad hands

    Please overlook my failings
    Please end this pain and strife
    Please please take me home with you
    I'll be your friend for life.

    Please take me home and treat me right
    And let our friendship grow
    Please let me come home with you
    This time it will work, I know

    HOPE THOSE THAT HAVE BIRDS OR THINKING OF A BIRD_ TAKES
    THIS TO HEART!


    Take this simple oath before you buy or adopt a bird:

    1. I promise to research thoroughly the species that I am
    interested in.
    2. I promise to be kind and gentle and never to strike my
    bird for any
    reason.
    3. I promise to learn about the health of my bird and to
    get medical
    attention should the need arise. I will make every effort
    to find a good
    recommended avian specialist and to have his or her number
    handy
    in case of emergency.
    4. I promise to devote the time each day that is needed to
    keep my
    bird happy.
    5. I promise to take the time to prepare the proper diet
    required for
    my bird and to take great care in keeping its food
    containers and cage
    superclean.
    6. I promise to house this bird in as large a flight or
    cage as my wallet
    and space will afford - and not to buy a bird until I can
    afford to supply
    proper housing.
    7. I promise to take the commitment of owning this bird
    seriously and
    to think hard about any changes that might be imminent in
    my lifestyle
    that would put me in the position of having to give up
    this bird (marriage,
    travel, pregnancy, etc.).

    Michelle- I have thought on this, You are to be comended
    on what you are doing and having done rehab and fixed what
    people have done to Parrots, Please dont give up- keep
    doing what you are meant to do- thats helping those that
    cant help themselves. More of us Bird- lovers need to step
    in and help instead of critisize(sp) So please from me,
    except my public appology and I applaud you for your
    selflessness, if more of us would do the same, the world
    would sure as hell be a better place. My husband and I
    have forked out 42,000.00 since we started buying birds in
    need, dont listen to internet crap! :)))
