SHE'S ONLY A BIRD IN A GILDED CAGE Traditional She's only a bird In a gilded cage, A beautiful sight to see, You may think she's happy And free from care, She's not Tho' she seems to be, 'Tis sad when you think Of her wasted life, For youth cannot mate with age, And her beauty was sold For an old man's gold, She's a bird in a gilded cage.
