Because they do not seem to exist online and they are handy if I am to request them for Jukebox. (Not yet decided.)

When Blackbirds Fly - Michael Franks (Song)

When blackbirds fly, they leave their lovers behind them
It’s no surprise, if you’re looking for faults you can find them
Let’s fly away, so high away from here
Where the air and the water’s clear
You can make bread and I’ll make beer
Let’s fly away
Into a sky full of stars
Swim in the rivers on Mars
Bring your dulcimer, I’ll bring my guitar

When blackbirds laugh, it’s not because they’ve been drinking
You’re here in my bed, but you still haven’t said what you’re thinking*
Let’s fly away, so high away from here
Into the stratosphere
You can make bread and I’ll make beer
Let’s fly away
Into the sky full of stars
We’ll make some babies on Mars
Play your dulcimer, I’ll play my guitar

When blackbirds die, they fall from the sky they are winging
It takes so long to remember the song we were singing
Let’s fly away, so high away from here
Where the air and the water’s clear
You can make bread and I’ll make beer
Let’s fly away
Into the sky full of stars
Be the Adam and Eve of Mars
With your dulcimer and my guitar

*although I always imagine this line as 'you're here in my head, but you still haven't said what you're thinking', because I misheard it that way once and I really like that phrasing.
