Lyrics
A man caught a tiny bird
Pretty as can be
Brought her home and caged her
So only he could see
He loved her and he praised her
And then he clipped her wings
Wondered at her beauty
As she began to sing

Release me
Set me free

But slowly he got frightened
She'd lost her precious glow
He prayed and he pondered
But couldn't let her go
She tried her best to tell him
In every way she knew
'Til heaven took her body
And off her spirit flew

Release me
Set me free
And I'll bring you more
Bring you more
Bring you more
Joy than you can see

Suddenly the sky
Was filled with flying birds
Her song was sung by all of them
And finally he heard

Release me
Set me free
